TV Crushes

Every once in a while, I like to share my inappropriate “never-gonna-happen-so-get-over-it” boy crushes with the lovely readers of I Hate Green Beans.  It’s therapeutic.  Join me in my own personal fantasy, won’t you?

Tim Riggins


He’s the bad boy on Friday Night Lights who every girl in Dillon wants to fix.  I prefer him in his fullback attire.  Those brooding eyes.  That hair.  Go Panthers!

 Billy Abbott


Billy Miller (the actor who plays Billy Abbott) is the best thing that has happened to Young and the Restless since Shelia Carter came back looking like Phyllis and tried to steal Lauren’s baby.  He has a charm about him that is infectious.  Love him!

Ryan Abbott


Well what do we have here?  Hello Tiger! 

Meet my friend Christopher J. Hanke.  He’s one of the most talented people I know.  And I’m excited beyond words that he is going to be in a new show on CBS this fall entitled Three Rivers.

About three months ago, I received an email that said, “Check out this behind the scenes look of the show.”

I click the link and am waiting for Hanke to pop up on a gurney with a bullet wound or as a surgical assistant handing the ER doctor a scalpel or something.  Little did I know that he was a MAIN CHARACTER of the show!  He’s the transplant coordinator with a heart of gold! 

And he’s so funny and so HANDSOME!

CBS loved him so much that they gave him a flip cam to take around for a day and document his random musings.  Check it out here.

I’m so excited for Christopher to make it big in Hollywood.  Mainly because he deserves to achieve this life-long dream and partly because I have a really good shot at meeting Billy Abbott now. 

I’ll be conducting a short Q&A with Hanke closer to the premiere of the show, which airs Sunday October 4.  If you’re lucky, I might convince him to send me a shirtless pic (you know how I love the nine-pack).  I’ve seen the real deal.  He’s hot.  You have my permission to get excited because it is totally worth it.

Together…we can get him in People’s Sexiest Men Alive edition.  Are you with me? 

In the meantime, why don’t you join me in the comments section and tell the world your TV crushes?  I’d be willing to bet there are some guys out there who aren’t afraid to post their thoughts too. 

Challenge extended.

Amen sister for Tim Riggins……he is delicious looking in that panthers uniform! I will have to add to that list Chuck Bass from Gossip Girl. He is oh so fine!

Mmmm…good taste Lincee!

I have so many crushes…right now my biggest one is Alexander Skarsgard on True Blood. Though it’s not even Alex so much as his character, Eric Northman. Be still my libido! Also from True Blood, Ryan Kwanten (Jason) and Sam Trammel (Sam). A big dreamy-eyed *sigh* to all of them!

Then there’s Josh Halloway from LOST. And, a little unusual, but Jason Segel too. I just love big adorable teddy bears!

Simon Baker is super-dreamy. Also Mark Harmon on NCIS. Sigh.

I agree with Tim Riggins! He is easy on the eyes. I love it when he moves his hair away from his eyes.

September 9, 2009 12:18 pm

I am the guy-next-door kinda girl… that being said, John Krasinski (JIM!!!) is my sweetheart… yesterday today, and tomorrow! Oh, and Dave Annable (Brothers and Sisters) is OH SO Dreamy!

Oh Tim Riggins how you take me back to my longing filled High School marching band days. Sitting in the stadium seats with my clarinet poised and ready to play the fight song…silently longing that # 23 would look my way and see past the sexless band uniform….

I agree with all the ladies who said Simon Baker. LOVE HIM! Loved him since “LA Confidential”. And Nathan whats-his-name from “Castle”. OH! And how can I possibly leave off John Hamm, aka Don Draper, from “Mad Men”???

Chris Noth has been my love for MANY years and glad to see him back with a new show. I hope this one makes it!

#4 I agree 100% with you on the “True Blood” guys…whew…..what will we do on Sunday nights after the finale this week??

No clue who any of your tv crushes are, Lincee, but they sure are nice to look at! I agree with SC on John Krasinski from The Office. My biggest TV crush ever goes WAY back to James Marsden when he was on a totally unpopular show that I loved called Second Noah. Then when he sang on the show with his guitar, I was immediately in love.

Maks from Dancing with the Stars! As a lifelong dancer, I would DIE DIE DIE to be able to take a spin on the floor with him! And he just broke up with Karina, sooooo there’s a chance!

I’ve been in love with Jensen Ackles from Days of our Lives since I was 12 years old but the timing has just never been right for “us”. He was a teenager when I was a pre-teen; he was an adult when I was a teenager; but now we are both adults so clearly our time has come! Now I just have to get him to realize this and we’ll live happily ever after. Also, I’m not-so-secretly in love with Anderson Cooper; he may a almost twice my age but he is so adorable!

I’ve got to go with Jonathan Rhys Meyers from the Tudors. i also second whoever mentioned Chuck Bass….

September 9, 2009 2:25 pm

Billy Abbott – YUM….I love Y&R.

September 9, 2009 2:28 pm

Oh Tim Riggins, he is the reason I stopped complaining about my boyfriend watching Friday Night Lights and actually sat down and paid attention and realized what a great show it is! And to Emily, heck yes on Jonathan Rhys Myers, he’s actually on my “list” he’s so fine. And of course Patrick Dempsey, and this may be wierd but I have a little crush on the guy from Man vs. Food, Adam Richman, I think he’s a such a cutie! Okay…I’ll stop now.

Would love your thoughts! Click here to share.x
