Who is the ultimate Sexy Beast? (Top 64, Part 1) Vote now!

sexy-beast-july-19-aImage Credit: John P. Johnson/HBO; Fox; Justin Stephens/SyFyApologies to our human readers, but in today’s pop-culture landscape, there’s nothing sexier than being a beast. Vampires and werewolves, aliens and mutants, monsters and machines: These are the new objects of our lust. Built from DNA that’s infused with a little added danger, beasts are always ready to kick ass, take names, and raise our collective pulse rates in the process. EW.com’s editors put their heads together to pick the 64 ultimate Sexy Beasts, and now we’re asking you to crown the king or queen of the pack in an old-fashioned, single-elimination tournament. Every weeknight at midnight for the next month (because that’s when these cats come out to play), you can vote in polls to help narrow down the field. Click here to see the entire bracket (then click again on the image for a zoomed-in view) and after the jump, vote in the first four face-offs pitting characters from True Blood, Kindred: The Embraced, Battlestar Galactica, Total Recall, X-Men, Splash, The Lost Boys, and Twilight. You’ll also see lists of the 16 seeded players (and the actors who play them) in all four of our beastly divisions: TV Vampires and Their Friends; Mutants, Monsters, and Creatures; Aliens, Machines, and Their Ilk; and Movie Vampires and Werewolves. Now stop staring at the hot photos and get voting! [UPDATE: The polls for Part 2 of Sexy Beasts — featuring more characters from X-Men, Twilight, True Blood, V, and Battlestar Galactica — are live!; to get updates on every Sexy Beast bracket, follow me on Twitter @EWMichaelSlezak!]

  • Rebekah

    I am loving seeing all the X-Men, Twilight, and Buffy characters on here. Plus, omg, you included the 10th Doctor! No matter who wins, this is still a pretty darn good list–not perfect, but still good.

    • two cents

      But they forgot Oz. : ( He’s a better werewolf than David Thewlis’ Lupin.

      • AshleyBrooke

        They DID forget Oz! How could they? I’m glad they have Charmed on here, in one category. Although they should have all three for being witches (or well, four technically)

      • V

        And Anya and Lorne…*sigh* (Because Lorne is awesome, may Andy Hallett RIP)

      • MJ

        Oz should be on here, but not in place of Lupin!

    • Lizz

      OH MY GOD!! I COMPLETELY AGREE WITH YOU!! I <3 the 10th Doctor!!

    • ravonangel

      i am Jacob all the way, i am team Jacob!

  • tvgirl48

    Wow this is so hard to decide! I love seeing the Tenth Doctor on there, he’s my vote for sexiest in the universe. I just wish you had included Mitchell from Being Human. For me, he just barely manages to beat Damon Salvatore.

    • Lara

      Ohh I agree Mitchell from Being Human. I just started watching that. He is very sexy!

      • Emilee

        I would definitely submit Mitchell from Being Human as a write-in vote!

    • Amy

      Agreeing to this! I am appalled at the lack of Being Human on this list. Annie, too!

    • Amy L.

      Absolutely! Mitchell wins hands down for me. And George is an adorable werewolf. LOVE Being Human. Hope the US version doesn’t suck.

    • spikesgrl

      Yes, Mitchell please. He is yummy!!

    • Rafafan

      I agree. They should’ve included Mitchell. He is super sexy!

      • Orhan

        No, I’m sorry. You’ll need to be more specific to iisrnpe me to do better. For example, Famous Author Rob Byrnes might be reading aloud at St. Agnes’s Orphanage for Blind Puppies, although that’ll be 1 a.m. eastern and he should be letting sleeping dogs lie, so even THAT won’t get to me.While I normally admire humility and anonymity in these matters, I’ll also need a letter of proof from a clergy person, medical practitioner, anarchist, or superhero who can authenticate your brave and noble act.

    • Rohan

      I just wrote that on the fifth round! Hehe, Totally agree, plus why David Tenant and not Matt Smith? I don’t know why but I find him attractive in some way…But he looks so weird!

  • Bibi

    I’ve been watching reruns of “Moonlight”. For me it’s a close tie between Mick St. John and Damon Salvatore. Sorry the guy who plays Stefan just looks too much like Woody from “Toy Story” for me to take him seriously. Love Angel too.

    • Jasmine

      ive met both ian (damon) and paul (stefan)in person. and let me tell you that paul is really hot in person! i can’t really explain it but his features reminded me of a greek god sculpture. oh and ian is unbelivably sexy. no doubt about it.

  • Sara

    seriously? edward cullen vs. the lost boys? what a joke! why not edward cullen vs. angel? id like to see angel rip that cullen bitch a new one.

    • Andrea D

      I want to see Mr Cullen try to even be in the same room as either Angel or Eric Northman. But Jacob vs Alcide?? Alcide would make mincemeat of him!

    • Karate Pants

      I think you’re mistaking the sexiness poll for some sort of a physical throwdown.
      I really do love The Lost Boys, but Kiefer Sutherland’s peroxide and pug face has NOTHING on Robward. No contest.

      • bk

        Couldn’t have said it better myself. Peroxide hair and pug face, yuck!

      • Francesca

        lol. “peroxide and pug face”

        Exactly. I was looking for a description and you hit it on the nose. Please!!! Robward hands down is the sexy beast.

      • Cricket

        Go watch The Lost Boys then watch Twilight. I will guarantee you’ll change your mind. Patterson has absolutely NOTHING on Sutherland. In fact, I doubt Patterson has ever watched a vampire movie in his life if his potrayal of one is any indication.

      • Karate Pants

        Cricket, you don’t read very thoroughly – I’ve seen The Lost Boys many times. This doesn’t have anything to do with that ridiculous old “whose vampires are more real” argument.
        This is about hotness. Robward, hands down.

      • Well…

        As of right now, peroxide is winning.

      • Karate Pants

        Yeah, well I think people are unfairly letting their prejudice and distain for Twilight affect their voting. They’re not thinking straight. I feel like they could have pitted Fat Bastard against Robward, and they would have voted Fat Bastard a sexier beast.

      • StewyFan

        I agree. Imagine that. haha This isn’t a contest over who is more badass. This is a contest over who is sexier. And I am sorry but if you think Kiefer is sexier than Robert Pattinson, well .. yeah. I won’t offend.
        BTW, for the record, I love The Lost Boys.

      • bk

        Lost Boys was good way back when but it is not a standard to judge all vampire movies by any means. Nor was it sexy. Just a bunch of kids. Sorry not the stuff for legends. Edward is swoon worthy (deny all you want but millions have swooned), so was Brad Pitt, Tom Cruise, David Boreanaz and Gary Oldman in their vampire roles.

      • Jaz

        @Cricket. If you read the books you’d know Robert is acting EXACTLY as written.
        He is not a typical vamp.

    • Maddie

      I totally agree. If you’re going to do a vamp from a teen franchise then at least do the “eternal stud” that is damon salvatore.

      • Lema

        couldnt agree more, Damon is SOOOO HOT!

  • Martin

    Nice to see Mark Frankel on here, but it’s hardly a fair comparison since “Kindred: The Embraced” only lasted 8 episodes back in 1996, and Frankel died in a motorcycle accident only months after the last episode aired.

    Therefore, he and the show just aren’t as well-known compared to something as recent as “True Blood”.

    • jared4ever

      absolutely unfair, most people prolly don’t even know who he was. He was WAY hotter too btw.

    • Ladyli1

      I absolutely agree.

    • didi

      I totally agree. Most people don’t know who he is or just how magnetically charsmatic he was. As much as I love Eric(and he’s smoking hot), Frank was the ultimate sexy vamp. If you want to see a brooding vamp done right, he’s your man.

      • Tracy

        Ditto. I loved me some Mark Frankel. He was one HOT Prince! I was very sad when I heard he had died.

  • Nick B

    Ha! This is awesome for including Ms. Pac-Man. I always thought she was sexy.

  • Laura W

    Let’s hope that Edward Cullen doesn’t win the votes because he isn’t sexy. He’s a sick old man stalking an young girl!

    • Jen

      Well, it’s interesting that for today’s polls he was obviously going to win but his was much closer than the other three.

  • Freya

    I love David Tennant made the list, but what about the 9th Doctor-Christopher Eccleston? Or how about Sirius Black-Gary Oldman? They are list worthy!

    • ash

      Sirius was only hot when he was younger. Azkaban destroyed his looks.

    • Ann

      Sirius is not a beast or alien or robot, etc, so he doesn’t qualify for the bracket.

      • Jackie

        Well, he’s an animagus, so technically, he’s a shapeshifter. Sam Merlotte from “True Blood” is on the list, and he’s a shapeshifter, so going by that standard, Sirius is definitely eligible. And even after Azkaban, he’s way better looking than the guy who plays Lupin (more dashing too!).

      • Karate Pants

        Jacob Black also not technically a wolf, but a shape shifter – so I think Sirius should qualify also (not that I’d consider him to be sexy beast material, but all’s fair…)

      • Ceballos


        I love that you just couldn’t help but take a little jab at Gary Oldman. :)

      • Karate Pants

        Ah, but I will allow him to qualify for the hotness contest, which you have to agree was very gracious of me (and I DO like Sirius Black…just not in a hotness way). ;)

    • Sam

      completely agree with Freya where is Sirius Black sure when he got out of Azkaban he looks like a lunatic but in OOTP he looked sooo much hotter. im glad Remus Lupin is in the list though, i love him, he may not be the sexiest werewolf but theres a certain charm to him that makes people automatically love him (in case you havent noticed I’m a harry potter fan :D)

  • Just Jules

    Eric on TB,… WAY hotter… not to mention his freaky sex habit… what’s not to love?!?

  • Heather

    I love that Madison is on this list! Splash was one of my favorite movies as a child!

  • Chloe

    Tenth Doctor as sexiest man in the whole universe and time and space. Plus, I would like to add Mitchell and George from BBC’s Being Human. Mitchell is plain sexy, and George is cute in a nerdy way.

    • Celimene

      Yes. Yes he is. Tenth Doctor ftw!

    • lizzie

      totally agree, Mitchell and George should definitely be on this list. I think Herrick could also be listworthy.

  • Laurie

    This is awesome… so many great characters on here. Definitely gonna have fun voting for all of them!

  • Skip182

    Seven of Nine Tertiary Adjunct of Unimatrix Zero One. I’d let her assimilate me any day.

  • Sarah

    Ms. Pac Man wins hands down.

    • Sarah

      Haha, I just noticed on the bracket chart that Ms. Pac Man is going against Angelina Jolie. Awesome.

  • Kate

    Eric Northman and Angel tie in the vamp category for me. And Kyle from Beastly is looking veryyyy promising. And Alcide has my vote for the wolves … hands down!
