24_pegg_lgThis is probably an unconventional choice, to some.  But, I find Simon Pegg to be hysterical, and I love redheads.  Pegg is a British actor most well-known for playing the title role in the zombie comedy (zom-com?) Shaun of the Dead.  Other notable works include the British television show Spaced, and the movies Hot Fuzz, Run Fatboy Run, and How to Lose Friends and Alienate People.  He also plays Scotty in the upcoming Star Trek.

Why He’s More Than Just Eye Candy:  He is hysterical, and has written most of the things he’s appeared in (Shaun of the Dead, Spaced, and Hot Fuzz were all co-written and co-created by him).  He is a huge Star Wars fan.  He also always finds a role in his creations for his best friend and old roommate, Nick Frost.  What a good friend.
