The Only Men You Need In 2015

Cumberbatch. Hiddles. Fassbender. CUMBERBATCH.

Posted on

Tom Hiddleston


Set to star in Guillermo del Toro's thriller Crimson Peak with Mia Wasikowska. Excellent costume, check. Loki-esque hair, check. Brooding stare, check.

James McAvoy

He'll be starring alongside Daniel Radcliffe (yes please) in a feature length version of Frankenstein. There are no decent pictures yet, so here's James next to a horse.

In the mean time, check out...


James as Robbie Turner in Atonement, with a career-defining performance. James has said Robbie was the favourite character he ever played.

In the mean time, check out...


Late 90's Christian as Demetrius in a screen adaptation of A Midsummer Night's Dream. It's whimsical and wonderful, just what you need after all those Dark Knight rewatches.

Lee Pace

Tina Rowden / AMC

Halt and Catch Fire really, err, caught fire this year (sorry). You probably know Lee from The Hobbit, where he stole the show as Thranduil the party elf king magnificently. Halt and Catch Fire returns later in 2015.

Richard Madden


Is the new Prince Charming in Cinderella. Ok, he possibly looks better with some stubble going on, but who can resist some swashbuckling and a charming smile?

David Tennant


David returns as the sullen DI Alec Hardy in Broadchurch, series 2. Did it need another series? No! Will we be glued to our screens (and David's wonderful stubble) anyway? Yes!

Dane DeHaan


You know him from Spiderman 2. He'll be playing another iconic character in 2015 - James Dean, in Life. It's about time those eyes returned to the big screen.

Daniel Bruhl


You might know Daniel as the partner of a very blonde Benedict Cumberbatch in The Fitfh Estate, or as a sweet German prince from Inglourious Basterds. In truth he's a bit of a chameleon, so watch out for him in 2015, where he'll be starring alongside Helen Mirren and Charles Dance in the post-war drama, The Woman in Gold.

In the mean time, check out...


His brilliantly convincing portrayal of Niki Lauda in Rush. Well worth the BAFTA nomination. There's something about his reserved presence, the opposite of Chris Hemsworth's brash James Hunt.

In the mean time, check out...

C. Des

Cabin Pressure, the brilliant radio drama. Ok, so you can't see Benedict, but you can lay down and listen to his honeyed voice in all it's glory. And did I mention he's hilarious in it? Because he is. And it's wonderful.

And if you can handle the wait until 2016...


Benedict will be playing the evil and corrupt Richard III in the BBC's next series of The Hollow Crown. There'll be dark hair. There'll be brooding glances. There'll be swordfighting. We can only imagine what his voice will be like.

Now if you'll excuse me I really do have to lay down.
