Claim to Fame: He first caught our attention as the intelligent thug on HBOâ€™s cult favorite, The Wire and since became a mainstream Hollywood heartthrob. Not content with just skating on his good looks, Elba has proven he takes his craft seriously by accepting challenging roles like those he played as a detective in BBCâ€™s Lutherâ€”for which heâ€™s won a Golden Globe award.
Why Heâ€™s So Hot: Elba is quite possibly one of the sexiest men walking. His irresistible British accent, a set of abs women canâ€™t stop staring at, and that nonchalant â€œI donâ€™t even realize how fine I amâ€ charm have become legendary. However, heâ€™s a thinker too and recently diversified his resume by expanding to music (heâ€™s a highly sought after DJ) and working behind the camera as a producer of the indie series Milk & Honey.
