Hot Scots!

I've just come to realize that a lot of Scottish actors are pretty... well, for lack of a better word... hot. And talented, of course, that too. Do you know these guys?

Ewan McGregor

Hello! You must've been hiding under a rock the last decade to not recognize this hunk. His more acclaimed works has been in Moulin Rouge and Trainspotting. He also has a documentary on NatGeo about Riding down to Africa. Oh, and not bad a voice either. Not fantastic, but quite good.

Gerard Butler

He's that muscle bound man in 300 and he's been getting a lot of eyeing from the ladies since then. Even my friend Sep has fallen for his charms and I can hardly blame her. His other films are mostly released in UK but I'm sure we'll hear more about this guy in a few.

Dougray Scott

Remember that guy who played Prince Charming in Ever After? He also played another prince in the Hallmark rendition of the Arabian Nights. Last I heard, he married Meet Joe Black's Claire Forliani and I dare say their kid would be one heck of a charming tyke. The kid just wouldn't be able to help it.

James McAvoy

And of course, James. Who I am happy to say has enough acting muscles to make up for the lackluster of H-wood types. So far, all his movies have amused and amazed me and I urge all of you to see some of it for yourself.

In the movie Wimbledon

As Mr. Tumnus in the Chronicles of Narnia

As doctor to the dictator in Last King of Scotland

As Max Campion in Penelope

As James Lefroy in Becoming Jane

Alongside Angelina Jolie in Wanted

As Robbie Turner in Atonement


A story about Leo Tolstoy's life entitled Last Station.

HOT SCOTS indeed. Indeed.
