Michael Trevino, Tyler Blackburn, Stephen Amell And Other TV Hotties Short Circuit Our Brain With This Pic

I first saw this photo this morning on Arrow star Stephen Amell‘s Facebook feed (like it, you won’t be sorry), and no kidding, all work stopped for a full five minutes. I’m surprised there’s no brain matter splattered on my screen right now. In case you haven’t yet committed the fall TV schedule to memory, here’s who they are, from left to right: Amell, Jay Ryan (Beauty and the Beast), Steven R. McQueen (The Vampire Diaries), Dylan O’Brien (Teen Wolf), Harry Shum Jr. (Glee), Tyler Blackburn (Pretty Little Liars), Justin Hartley (Emily Owens, M.D.), Taylor Kinney (Chicago Fire) and Michael Trevino (The Vampire Diaries). The spread is actually from Bullett Media, who decided to explode our hearts too, by gathering these guys’ quotes about what they look for in a woman.

“I judge a woman purely on how she looks first thing in the morning. That’s the critical point, right?” Amell says. OK, so he’s not all that romantic. But points for honesty!

“If a girl doesn’t get along with my dog, then we’ve got a problem,” McQueen says.

Our personal favorite is from Tyler Blackburn: “I enjoy a certain amount of decadence in my life, so I want to be with someone who shares an appreciation for the finer things. And if that finer thing happens to be fried, well, put it in your mouth.” We’re totally down with that one.

For the rest of the guys’ quotes (especially a surprising revelation from Taylor Kinney, a.k.a. Lady Gaga’s main squeeze), head over to Bullett.

From Arrow To 666 Park Avenue: Fall TV’s Most Promising Eye Candy

We’re going to leave it up to the pundits to predict which of the many new shows presented at this week’s network upfronts will rise to the top come fall TV season. All we know is, we may have re-watched the clip of Stephen Amell doing pull-ups in the CW’s Arrow about 10 times this morning. (Sorry, lost count.) Point is, there are a whole lot of new faces for us to ogle — and about as many returning ones we’ve been longing for — on the schedules that were announced this week.

What the hell is going on at 666 Park Avenue (ABC’s new drama)? We can only tell that Vanessa Williams is still devilishly hot, and Dave Annable and Rachael Taylor have the kind of sex appeal that might entice us to sell our souls too. We are squealing with delight at the return of Felicity boys Scott Speedman AND Scott Foley to TV this fall — Speedy’s a naval officer in Last Resort, while Foley’s one of the siblings competing for his father’s fortune in the Fox comedy The Goodwin Games.

Vampire Diaries alum and Lady Gaga ex Taylor Kinney gets extra dirty as a firefighter in NBC’s Chicago Fire. We’re also thrilled to see Smallville’s Kristen Kreuk get her Linda Hamilton on in the CW’s Beauty and the Beast reboot. (That’ll have to do for re-imagined faves on the network, since The Carrie Diaries won’t debut until midseason, grrr.) This season has its share of hot doctors — Jordana Spiro and Zach Gilford in The Mob Doctor; Mamie Gummer, Justin Hartley and Aja Naomi King in Emily Owens M.D.; Mindy Kaling in The Mindy Project; Justin Bartha in The New Normal; Lucy Liu in Elementary, and Justin Kirk (as a vet) in Animal Practice. There are superstars, like country singers Connie Britton and Hayden Panettiere in Nashville, and there are those just struggling to survive, like Revolution’s Billy Burke and Tracy Spiridakos. Let’s not forget the updated versions of TV’s favorite professions: detectives (Jonny Lee Miller’s Sherlock Holmes in Elementary, Kevin Bacon in The Following) and lawyers (Janet Montgomery in Made in Jersey). But like we said, enough talk for now. It’s time to enjoy this eye candy before we have to pick and choose who gets the DVR love at the end of summer.
