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.

It may seem a little mean, but it's all in the name of good humor; and if anybody can take it, it's these...

Jonah Hill, who has notoriously played an overweight underdog in several films, has regained the weight he lost for "21 Jump Street."

The Moneyball star fears nerves are getting the better of him as he waits for the debut of his new comedy 21 Jump Street, but he has no idea why he has started getting up in the middle of the night and dressing himself.

10 Fun Facts About The Original '21 Jump Street'

March 15th, 2012 11:00am EDT
21 Jump Street Cast
As part of Hollywood's neverending pillaging of the TV landscape of my youth, the big-screen reboot of "21 Jump Street" hits theaters this Friday. Having been a huge fan of the show, I was opposed to the film from the get-go. However, after hearing that most (if not all) of the main cast members have cameos, and that the movie has very little in common with the series aside from the title and basic premise, I'm not so dead set against it. Besides, if it does well, there's a good chance that some network will start airing reruns of the original show, allowing me to rekindle my once-raging cr...
