Alex O'Loughlin on list of "50 Hottest Hunks - Ever"

AOL Television has created their list of TV's 50 Hottest Hunks - Ever. Of course, they selected our Alex O'Loughlin! Woo Woo! You can not have a credible list of sexy actors without him. However, I do have an issue with them placing him at #49.

Other gentlemen keeping Alex company on the list...... Jared Leto, George Clooney, Chace Crawford, Jon Hamm, Taye Diggs, Tom Welling, Johnny Depp, Jensen Ackles, Wentworth Miller, Eric Dane, David Boreanaz, Michael Landon, Gary Dourdan, Jonathan Rhys-Meyers, James Garner, Blair Underwood, Matthew Fox, Taylor Kitsch, Josh Holloway, Patrick Dempsey........

Counting Down the Sexiest Men on TV

49. Alex O'Loughlin

Shows We Loved Him On:
· 'The Shield' (2007)
· 'Moonlight' (2007-08)

Hunk Factor: The Australian native first caught TV fans' eyes as a well-intentioned, and drop-dead gorgeous, new member of the Strike Team on 'The Shield.' But he really sunk his teeth into the role of vampire/private investigator Mick St. John on CBS' short-lived drama 'Moonlight.' Despite his blood-thirsty nature, Mick fell in love with a mortal -- reporter Beth -- and was all the more endearing because he was a vamp with a conscience; he didn't hunt women, kids or innocents.

Hunks from last year's cancellations are reappearing everywhere. The latest news is that "Journeyman" lead Kevin McKidd has signed for Grey's Anatomy. New Amsterdam's lead Nikolaj Coster-Waldau is reportedly filming (or at least rehearsing) episodes of a new show. I worry for Alex. While WE all know how sexy he is and what an amazing actor, show business is fickle. He got poor coverage from his network while he was Mick St John (evidence how "The Mentalist" lead Patrick Jane has been promoted in the media - not to mention the tweeny hunks of Gossip Girl) so many people STILL don't know about him and how amazing he is or how terrific Moonlight was. I hope that the show appearing on SciFi in the new year will get him new fans but I do worry that everyone else is moving on while he remains out of the limelight (new project notwithstanding).

We all knew he was the hottest, the rest of the world will finally understand why.

Lyn, you are so right, show business is fickle and if you are out of the lime-light for very long, you are forgotten. We are tring very hard to keep Alex out there, but I think his represenative need to get out there and hustle a little. "New Projects" are not "new" if they are not seen while the actor is hot property.
