I was reading the daily Anglophenia column on the BBC America website and was pleasantly surprised to see our man as #2 on the list of "Anglophenia's British Hotties of the Year". The stars (male and female) of the supernatural series "Hex" took most of the spots but I gave a big WOOT! when I saw this:
