Hottest Guys of 2012
Who are the sexiest guys in music, film and television? We narrowed our picks down to 50 in our annual list, spotlighting those who made our hearts skip a beat when we watched them perform.

Channing Tatum and Matthew McConaughey bared quite a bit in "Magic Mike," while "The Avengers" actors got our blood flowing with their explosive action scenes.

We lusted after Chris Hemsworth in "Snow White And The Huntsmans" and felt a little bit giddy when rumors swirled that Justin Bieber broke up with Selena Gomez (he didn't.)

'Justice League' Rumor: Joseph Gordon Levitt As Batman

November 27th, 2012 5:07pm EST
Joseph Gordon-Levitt in Dark Knight Rises
Warner Bros. is hoping to get Justice League out into theaters as soon as possible, following the success of Disney's Avengers. Christian Bale is done with Batman, though, so WB will have to resort to the next best thing.

Spoilers ahead, if you haven't seen Dark Knight Rises (in fact, this entire article could be considered a spoiler, but still). At the end of Rises, Joseph Gordon-Levitt's character is given full access to the Bat-Cave after Bruce Wayne retires from the job. So for the time being, Levitt is WB's Batman.

However, there isn't time for there to be a Batman film before Justi...

Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s 10 Best Performances

September 29th, 2012 12:00pm EDT
JGL
10. Angels in the Outfield (dir. William Dear, 1994)

It’s easy to forget that JGL began his career at a very early age. His first starring performance, when he was roughly 12 years old, was the endearing and surprisingly entertaining Disney remake of Angels in the Outfield. As Roger, an orphan who prays for the Los Angeles Angels baseball team to win the pennant, JGL had to act opposite some pretty heavy hitters (Christopher Lloyd, Danny Glover, Tony Danza, Dermot Mulroney), but managed to still give an impressively mature performance.

JGL’s work in Angels in the Outfield showed clear sig...

Revered method actor Daniel Day-Lewis was so taken over by the role of Abraham Lincoln in Steven Spielberg's new historical epic Lincoln that even the director referred to him as Mr. President on set.

The Dark Knight Rises star says, "He's not silly about it... but he does stay talking in that voice; he spent a year coming up with how he wanted the voice to sound and I never heard his (real) voice and I n...

Review: 'Premium Rush' One Super Exciting Roller Coaster Ride Through Manhattan

Premium Rush
Sometimes a film is 100 per cent entertainment. That is definitely the case with "Premium Rush" written and directed by David Koepp (writer of 'Spiderman' & 'Mission Impossible' etc).

This film is one big roller coaster ride...one that you'll want to keep riding, right up to the end.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt is Wilee, ex law student, turned bike messenger, extraordinaire. He spends his days dodging speeding cars, crazed cab drivers and 8 million New Yorkers hurrying to get wherever, and he loves every minute of it.

To get an idea about who Wilee is his bike is super lightweight, with only on...

...on the set of new film "Don Jon's Addiction." So, no, they're not a couple. Although we think they'd be really cute together!

Scarlett, 27, has been dating New York City ad executive Nate Taylor for several months. He follows a fling she had with Sean Penn and a failed marriage to Ryan Reynolds.

We're not sure who Joseph is dating right now - if anybody. He has most recently been linked to Devon Aoki and Evan Rachel Wood.
