HBO released the trailer for the upcoming third season of hit series Girls on Friday, giving fans a glimpse of what Hannah (Lena Dunham) and her pals will be up to this time around.

Adam Driver GQ
Adam Driver is quickly rising to the top of the A-list, thanks to his role on HBO's hit series "Girls," and the actor recently sat down to discuss his career for the September issue of GQ magazine.

Driver began his acting career after getting discharged from the U.S. Marine Corps. He joined after the events of 9/11 but broke his sternum during a training drill and was discharged. It kept him from serving in Iraq, something he laments.

"It's hard to describe. You're put in these very heightened circumstances, and you learn a lot about who people are at the core, I think. You end up having ...

Channing Tatum
Channing Tatum was named this year's Sexiest Man Alive by People magazine, the 24th guy to earn the superficial title.

Tatum joins the likes of George Clooney, Hugh Jackman, Harrison Ford, Denzel Washington and Brad Pitt on the list; which has been around for 27 years now; and we thought we'd have a little fun with it and come up with a list of the top 10 guys we think (and are pretty sure) will never be named "Sexiest Man Alive" by People -- or any other publication, for that matter.
