Sexiest Men Alive: The New Class
If you haven't yet fallen in love with Isaac thanks to his breakout roles in Inside Llewyn Davis and Ex Machina, his next big project, Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens, should do the trick. After all, if we've learned anything from Han Solo it's that it's pretty difficult to resist "the best frickin' pilot in the galaxy," as Isaac described his character, Poe Dameron – especially if he's as incredibly good-looking as the star.
Also looking to steal hearts everywhere from here to a galaxy far, far away is Boyega, the charismatic newcomer set to become a major Hollywood star. But while we're all swooning over him – That smile! Those arms! That personality! – Boyega is still pinching himself over his own fan freakout on the set of Star Wars, when the self-proclaimed "nerd" asked Harrison Ford to sign his Han Solo figure.
He's already a huge star in his native South Africa, but you're about to see Trevor Noah's face everywhere once he starts his new gig as host of The Daily Show. And what a face it is: "Trevor Noah's dimples might be the real new hosts of The Daily Show," said a blogger for New York magazine. Funny, smart and handsome? Sign us up.
Though the native Brit has admitted that his accent "doesn't seem to work for me, unfortunately," when it comes to the ladies, we're sure James is doing just fine in the romance department, thanks to his chiseled good looks (and those action-hero abs!). But according to his Divergent co-star, Shailene Woodley, what makes James most attractive is his "beautiful, soulful heart." Aww.

Maybe you were won over by his heroics in The Maze Runner, or perhaps you swooned over his romance with Ellie Kemper in Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt – either way, Lee (and his dimples) has probably become the leading man in your heart this year. Don't worry, though: all of the fawning hasn't gone to his head. "People will compliment me on my dimples," he told PEOPLE. "But medically, dimples are flawed muscles – they're not supposed to exist!" (We're very glad his do.)
Yes, he is just as perfect as he seems. In addition to his Disney-prince good looks and incredible talent, it turns out that Bomer is also a total romantic as well. "I've definitely left some trails of flower petals before," he admitted to PEOPLE. "But mostly I like to write songs to and sing them to the people I love." Oh, yeah, and he can sing too!
His character might know nothing, but we know that Harington is one of the hottest leading men in Hollywood right now … even if he does have to spend most of his time in the snow. Still, don't think the cold climate gets him down: "I'd get people coming up to me in the street, asking if I was okay," he told GQ about his infamous grumpy expressions. "But this is my default. I laugh, I make jokes, I just happen to reside in this face."
He sings, he dances, he acts – and he's incredibly handsome to boot! Smollett, whose role as Jamal on Empire has made him one of the biggest TV stars of the year, says that the best part about being on the hit show is getting to make an impact: "When a role like Jamal comes along you fight for it," he told PEOPLE. "It meant something to me and I'm honored to be able to tell this story."
If you happen to be a Friday Night Lights fan, explaining Kitsch's rugged handsomeness takes just two words: Tim Riggins. As the show's charming, brooding bad boy, he was every viewer's dream boyfriend, and it's an achievement he’s maintained even as he's starred in a wide variety of projects, like Battleship, A Normal Heart and most recently, as the mysterious and brooding Paul Woodrugh in True Detective.
Sure, everybody knows that Chris Hemsworth is sexy (after all, he currently holds the Sexiest Man Alive title!), but his younger brother is equally dreamy. Plus, he's already gotten your best friend's seal of approval: "Liam is the most wonderful, loveable, just family-oriented, sweet, hilarious [guy]," his Hunger Games co-star Jennifer Lawrence told PEOPLE. And we haven't even gotten started on his looks yet …
If the charming Brit's scruffy new look wasn't enough to win you over – though it didn't work on Patel's parents, who think it looks "too messy," according to the actor – the fact that he's still "best friends" with ex Freida Pinto should do the trick. After all, anyone who can stay friends after a breakup is a great person in our book. Add on his fun-loving personality and sweet smile, and we're sold.
Forget co-stars and best friends: Ejiofor is endorsed by Brad Pitt himself, which is perhaps the highest honor a sexy man can achieve. "He's always been so supportive of me," Ejiofor told PEOPLE about his 12 Years a Slave producer and co-star. And with all of that talent, good looks, charm and that accent, why wouldn't he be?
