Who's Our Favorite Daniel?

Oh my gosh, you guys. Can I just say that Fridays are even better having all of you come vote week after week? I love how some of you will throw DOWN for your favorites, too. This is not a dainty process. Hold fast.

Last week, you came out in droves to vote for your favorite Tom. Like over 25% more than the average so far. Crazy. And while everyone got a decent showing (except Tom Cullen... sorry, Lord Gillingham), the king of Hollywood, the benefactor of humanity, the most trusted human being in the United States according to a Reader's Digest poll won the vote pretty mightily.

Your favorite Tom is...

Tom Hanks. 

I can't say I'm surprised. And Selleck and Hardy essentially tied for second. I love you guys for that.

Now, on to this week's vote! Let's choose our favorite Daniel!


Dan Akroyd

Where We've Seen Him

Saturday Night Live, My Girl, Ghostbusters, The Blues Brothers, The Great Outdoors... if you grew up in the 80s, Dan Akroyd was on the Mount Rushmore of your childhood. Driving Miss Daisy is a personal favorite. ("You're a doodle, Mama.")

Why We Love Him

His humor is so effortless, we forget how talented he is. He considers himself a writer more than an actor which makes me love him more because he loves the craft of comedy. Plus he seems like a really solid man - married to the same woman for over thirty years, Canadian... you know, the usual.


Daniel Craig

Why We Love Him

He's hot. End of story.

Where We've Seen Him

He's our current James Bond. He was also great in Road to Perdition (one of my favorite movies of all time) and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. 


Daniel Dae Kim

Where We've Seen Him

LOST and Hawaii 5-0.

Why We Love Him

He is stupid fine oh my gosh. The characters that he has played, namely Jin in LOST, are so layered and likable. Plus none of us are complaining when he takes his shirt off. You know it's true.

Daniel Day Lewis

Why We Love Him

He's one of the most talented gypsies in Hollywood. When he gives an acceptance speech, it's like Shakespeare is speaking, but he's heading to a seance later. Awesome, weird dude with amazing hair and a voice that defies life. P.S. I love that he makes one movie every three years.

Where We've Seen Him

Lincoln, There Will Be Blood, Gangs of New York, The Last of the Mohicans, My Left Foot, and The Age of Innocence.


Daniel Radcliffe

Why We Love Him

He's Harry Potter! But he's also very much not Harry Potter and has escaped the trap of always being one character with his recent choices. He's been in some weird A movies, y'all, and it's awesome. Plus he can rap like a beast.

Where We've Seen Him

All the Harry Potter movies. Obvs. Also Victor Frankenstein, Kill Your Darlings, Horns, and Swiss Army Man.


Dan Stevens

Where We've Seen Him

Downton Abbey. And we're about to see him in Beauty and the Beast with Emma Watson. Hollaaaaaaa.

Why We Love Him

Let's be real - we love Matthew Crawley. But still. Dan has to be mostly awesome to play that guy.


Voting is closed! Your favorite Daniel is... Radcliffe.
