See Him In: Ocean's 13 (in '07)
Why He's Sexy: Have you seen him? Aside from his classic good looks, Clooney remains approachable and humble even while at the top of Hollywood's A list. Case in point: He's anti-swag. "I don't need a phone with sequins on it," he says. "It makes actors look bad."

See Him In: The action film The Guardian
Why He's Sexy: After years of broad slapstick as Kelso on That '70s Show, he's turned it down a notch. "Kevin [Costner, his costar in The Guardian] taught me about quiet confidence. It's not necessarily the one making the most noise that is the most valuable."

See Him In: The drama Zodiac (in '07)
Why He's Sexy: He took on a risky role in Brokeback Mountain because he believed in the film's message: "In the end, it's about how hard it is to love somebody, to really be intimate, to really let go and be open to that, no matter what the context."

See Him On: NBC's The Singles Table next year
Why He's Sexy: He's up for a good time. "I'm willing to make a fool of myself on the dance floor," says newlywed Cho of his wedding m.o. "It's a time to celebrate, and it's not a club or a waltz, so you don't have to look cool."
