Top 10 Boys of Summer

With this nice new crop of summer movies coming out, we have plenty of opportunities to enjoy our favorite men. I've rounded up my personal "top 10 list," giving props to the men I'm most excited to watch this summer. Who would be on your list?

No. 10: Paul Rudd
Often the bit part player, Rudd adds a little something special to every movie he's in, and while I know he's not a mainstream heartthrob, I totally adore this guy. I mean, is there any girl out there who didn't have a little thing for him, even sporadically, since he was so unconventionally dreamy in Clueless? This summer's super-hyped Knocked Up will be the perfect chance to see him on the big screen again (and again and again -- I have a feeling this may be one of those I see more than once).

To see the others,

No. 9: Josh Duhamel
I already mentioned how the Transformers movie is bringing out my inner 8-year-old boy, but I have to say a large part of the appeal is seeing Josh Duhamel heat up the screen. The "Las Vegas" TV star showed how endearing and sexy he was in guilty pleasure Win A Date with Tad Hamilton so I can't wait to see the action hero version of Josh. Hey, the requisite dramatic shirtless scene won't hurt either!

No. 8: Aaron Eckhart
Aaron Eckhart has the uncanny ability to be amazingly charming or a total sleazeball, and looks gorgeous all the while. I'm not sure how No Reservations will be as a movie, but I will have no problem watching Eckhart and his utterly charismatic smile in it.

No. 7: Steve Carell
True, I never thought I had a hankering to see Steve Carell without a shirt, but something about the way he screamed Kelly Clarkson as his chest hair was unceremoniously removed, well, it just won me over. Ha. I've got a weakness for the geeky guys with goofy smiles that can win your heart with a joke, and Carell's among the best of them. His presence might even get me to see Evan Almighty — and that's no small feat.

No. 6: Orlando Bloom
Whether he's sporting elfin ears and slinging arrows or all dirty on a pirate ship, Orlando Bloom is one beautiful man. Sometimes he's a little too pretty for my tastes, but other times — such as right here in Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End — he is just right. Plus, when you're standing next to Johnny and still able to steal a scene, even just a little, you know you're doing something right.

No. 5: Matt Damon
I know Pop has a major thing for Matt Damon, and I must admit, there's something adorable and compelling about him. Lucky audiences this summer can catch him in both Ocean's Thirteen and The Bourne Ultimatum.

No. 4: Chiwetel Ejiofor
I have loved Chiwetel Ejiofor ever since I saw him in Kinky Boots, and his performance in Children of Men just endeared him to me more. I think he's an amazing actor, but I also just think he's hot. I can't wait to see him in Talk to Me, in which he stars opposite Don Cheadle.

No. 3: Daniel Craig
Of course Daniel Craig is on this list. Even if he were not in The Invasion this summer (opening August 17), my massive love for him would require I find a way to sneak him in.

No. 2: The Entire Ocean's Thirteen Cast
Perhaps this is a cop-out (and yes, this is sneaking Matt Damon onto the list twice), but there are just way too many attractive men in this movie to list individually. I mean, just look at them all lined up at Cannes. If I were forced to separate, they would dominate the list. So, gentlemen of Ocean's Thirteen, I salute you.

No. 1: Johnny Depp
Frankly, Johnny Depp is the Number One man of every season. He's 21 Jump Street. He's Edward Scissorhands. He's Finding Neverland. He was once glamorous and dangerous with Kate Moss and these days a wonderful father and companion with Vanessa. Depp has no season, but lucky for all of us, he's the man of the summer in Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End, reprising his role as the sexy Captain Jack Sparrow. To be fair, there's no promise he won't win any and every season he gets to compete in. I mean come on, he's Johnny Depp.

*sigh* Paul Rudd is dreamy. I think that he should have made the Top 3 alongside Johnny and the Ocean's cast. I prefer watching him to most of the other guys on the list. Not bad though.
