What celebrity would be your dream date on Valentine's Day? Brad Pitt? Channing Tatum? Typical!

When it comes to picking a main squeeze from the ranks of Hollywood's hottest men, I prefer some of the more unconventional choices.

Sure, Ryan Gosling and Chris Hemsworth have smoldering six packs and handsome faces, but they lack the depth and unusual charisma of my carefully chosen paramours below. These actors light up the screen with riskier, grittier roles and capture hearts not with muscle, but with mysterious allure.

Happy Valentine's Day to my harem of overlooked hunks. This list is all about celebrating your special je ne sais quoi.
