2 Neil Patrick Harris Neil Patrick Harris

Hahaha, this guy! The main reason to watch How I Met Your Mother! And he look's good too And I have to congratulate his recent fatherhood! That Kid's childhood is going to be LEGEN... Wait for it... DARY. Neil Harris for the win!

Alright, acting wise, he has yet to have a really serious role where he can show off his talent. But how can you help but love this wonderful man. He is adorable, wonderful, creative and funny. Sad he bats for the other team, but only because that leaves no shot for me.

Actually he shows off much of his talent in How I Met Your Mother. - Juan-Luis

I love Neil Patrick Harris! He is my favourite actor! He is so funny when he portrays as Barney Stinson!

Gay need gay friends,why not is the bi? - bichatroom

5 Matt Bomer Matt Bomer Matthew Staton "Matt" Bomer is an American actor. He made his television debut with Guiding Light in 2001, and gained recognition with his recurring role in the NBC television series Chuck as Bryce Larkin.

He is the most hadsome of this list, but his boyfriend is very ugly, I don't understand that

I wish he wasn't so he could be mine. His eyes, his smile, his hair, his everything.

Matt lets do it together and make everyone jealous you first

He is just amazing and so talented I don't understand how he s not ranked first...

6 Chad Allen

Of these top ten, Chad has made his sexuality known through his movies and public service. He is a dashing, charming, daring, young man. He exudes masculinity through his sexuality. He's great.

I remember always rushing to the T.V. when Dr Quinn was on... He made my nights and fantasies

Great actor love everything he has played in I think he is the best actor. Do you have a partner and if so who is it

Has always been hot. I wish that USA was a bit less nervous about male nudity. We need to see him nude more often.

7 George Takei

More like George Ta-gay lol

8 Ramon Novarro

He had big penis..

Great, sexy silent film actor.

9 Sir Ian McKellan

He is the most classy and versatile actor. He's a totally different self in each role and remains classy, you just have to admire and love him.

He is referred to as Sir which is pretty damn awesome if you ask me, and he plays Gandalf and Magneto... That's all I have to say.

Not even a competition. And its spelled "McKellen".

He's Gandalf, what more should I have to say!? - Savolax

10 Nathan Lane

Nathan Lane is a very unappreciated actor. He is hilarious. I hope he will continue to make memorable films. My favourite Nathan Lane film is Mouse Hunt with co star Lee Evans. I recommend This movie. It is hilarious!

I loved him in The Bird Cage with Robin Williams. He was hilarious! He and Robin Williams' couple roles, were almost believable.

He is a great actor

He made that stupid Lion King movie

I hope he burns in Hell for that

22 Jim Parsons Jim Parsons James Joseph "Jim" Parsons is an American actor. He is known for playing Sheldon Cooper in the CBS sitcom The Big Bang Theory.

Great actor, make you smile every time he is on the air. Thank god for guys like him that can make you smile

Incredibly talented comedian that always seem to make us laugh. He has a great writing staff behind him, but, I doubt anyone else could deliver those complicated technical dialogues as well.

Jim Parsons is by far the cutest and most talented of any actor on this list, he should be #1.

He is adorable! I feel ashamed that I was weirded out when I found out he was gay... Now I'm over that and I absolutely love him! Amazing actor too! - Flowersocks2137
