Creative genius extraordinaire, Ryan Murphy, has unquestionably cornered the market on generating huge television hits. Sure, at the center of “Glee” and “American Horror Story” are brilliantly written stories that keep us coming back for more. But, the stories would simply be words on paper without talented actors who bring the characters vividly to life.
After all, we don't read TV shows. We watch them. So, let’s face it. The hot and hunky men that fill Ryan Murphy’s creative canvas are a huge draw. From Darren Criss to Evan Peters, and Dylan McDermott to Matthew Morrison, they pull us into their fictional worlds and hold us as a captive (and willing) audience.
They bring eye candy and pull on our heartstrings in more ways than one. We love to follow where these men lead us. They’ve taken us into “American Horror Story’s” dark world of infidelity, schizophrenia, murder and supernatural mayhem. They’ve given us front row seats for “Glee’s” romantic serenades, hot dance numbers and tender moments of teenage love, insecurity and dreams for the future.
The two shows couldn’t be more different in genre and theme. But the men who light up our TV screens on both of these series have one undeniable thing in common: they are h-o-t, hot.
Of course, Ryan Murphy , Brad Falchuk and Ian Brennan have to be included in this list as series co-creators. What can possibly be hotter than being one of the men whose brilliant and creatively diverse minds brought two of the most original and engaging television series of all time into existence?
So, on to the list. The men, of course, are not ranked in order of their hotness. It’s really impossible to designate one of these guys as being hotter than another. They are all hot in their own right and in their own way. The main point is they all drive up our internal thermometers…
