Hugh Jackman is the Sexiest Man Alive (unless you look at Jon Hamm)

Sexiestmanalive_lPeople‘s Sexiest Man Alive issue hits stands Friday, with Australia‘s Hugh Jackman taking this year’s title. I was in complete agreement…until I flipped through the gallery teasing 15 of People‘s picks, saw a photo of Mad Men‘s Jon Hamm (pictured, near left), and ovulated. Recount! Vote in the poll below, please. I am confident that you will make the right decision and not be swayed by the shirtless photo of Jackman that Slezak demanded we use for this post because (a) he wants Hugh to win and (b) he is a traffic whore. (Note: There is no “other” option in our poll because there is no other option. But feel free to make your case in the comments section.)

After you vote for Hamm, let us know who else you’re hoping to see on People‘s Sexiest list this Friday. The sneak peak gallery shows that the obvious choices are covered — Daniel Craig, Twilight‘s Robert Pattinson, Zac Efron, Michael Phelps (I guess I’m the only one officially over that torso?), and Javier Bardem (who Slezak says could punch him in the face and still receive his vote). There’s also a few semi-surprises: Mark-Paul Gosselaar (?!), Joshua Jackson, and country singer Blake Shelton (who I’m having a beer an interview with tomorrow). Surprise, surprise, I’m pulling for Desperate HousewivesGale Harold, while Slezak is lobbying for True Blood’s Ryan Kwaten (because he knows Lipstick Jungle‘s Robert Buckley has already made the cut).

    Hugh Jackman is the Sexiest Man Alive ™, not only because he looks good but because he can carry a comic book movie *and* win a Tony Award for The Boy Next Door (triple threat, baby!).

  • Kaiulani

    A man in a good suit is like a man in a military uniform…. gets me every time!

  • Sabrina

    Ew, ew, ew! (Not Entertainment Weekly “ew”, Gross “ew.”) I clearly have different taste than People. I’ve never found Hugh Jackman to be even remotely attractive. Where’s John Krasinski?

  • @Winona

    The Boy From Oz, not The Boy Next Door…

  • Dennis N.

    This is Hugh’s year. If he can still look smoldering whilst soiling himself, that deserves some attention. Even though Hamm is quite the dish, Jackman’s paid his dues. Hamm’ll get it in a forthcoming year.
    I second the Ryan Kwanten vote!

  • alexandra

    I’m sorry to all those GG fans out there – but Ed Westwick? Seriously? Seriously?!?!?! That kid is creeps me out. Plain and simple. It doesn’t help matters that the character of Chuck Bass makes me want to throw up. He is someone I did *not* expect to see on the list of sexiest men. Ewwww.

  • Lois

    Gale Harold deserves to be on that list! He’s totally underappreciated and Mad Hot!

  • Heather

    Hugh totally deserves it. Actually, he’s deserved it for a while. John Hamm can have his day. Just not this year.
    And Blake Shelton was a wonderful surprise for the list. He’s delightfully sarcastic. (Ask him about his long hair! His almost-mullet was priceless.) I’d kill to see Jensen Ackles on there. The man is painfully beautiful. Looks alone should get him on teh list, even if he is on the CW.

  • Dennis N.

    I’m right there with ya, alexandra. Not only is he terribly piggish (in manner and appearance), but his male co-stars are PAINFULLY more attractive than he and by contrast Westwick looks even worse.

  • Catherine

    How can you be over Michael Phelps torso?? I was pleasantly surprise to see Joshua Jackson!

  • Dawn

    excellent post!! i voted for Jon Hamm but was delighted to see it’s a close race (52/48) – and i love Hugh Jackman too. (“Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine!” – JD)
    mmm, mmm, i second the john krasinski vote.

  • Kristen

    I would have gone with Chase Crawford over Westwick- he IS creepy. I’m over Michael Phelps and have been sine about 1 1/2 days after he won the 8th medal. I’ve got my fingers crossed John Kransinski made the cut and that Justin TImberlake did not.

  • Kristen

    Jensen Ackles!!! Add him to my wish list. And Gale Harold :)

  • alexandra

    i’m so glad other people agree with my westwick opinion – i’ve been arguing with friends about this all morning. i agree that chace is way hotter – maybe he’s also on the list.
    also, i second the jensen ackles nom :) he is just too yummy for words. hopefully david boreanaz is on there too!

  • Anonymous

    Maybe I’m the only one, but I’m definitely hoping to see David Tennant (Doctor Who) on that list. Also, yeah, I agree with the comments about that Gossip Girl guy. He’s just creepy. No thanks.
