Hello and welcome. This is Andrew Scott, a fallen Irish angel walking among us.

Have you ever wanted to be sleeves this badly before?

Unless you've been living under a rock for six years, you'll probably recognize him as the actor who plays Jim Moriarty in Sherlock.

He scares us, makes us laugh, and sexually frustrates us all at the same time. Brilliant.

James Bond fans will know he's been quite busy lately showing us his stuff in "Spectre."

He also recently starred in "Victor Frankenstein" alongside the equally awesome James McAvoy and Daniel Radcliffe. It's been a big year for this guy, so let's show him some love, shall we?

1. Let's just establish right away that he's attractive as hell.

Check out that smile! And those arms! Nice.

2. He's an amazing stage actor.

He got his start in acting doing theater and still does quite a bit of it, starring in plays such as "Birdland" (pictured above), "Angels in America", and the absolute masterpiece that is "Sea Wall", to name just a few.
