Unless they're trying to win awards, being hot is a 24/7 mandate for today's stars. But what happens when one of them takes a role that requires them to stand out from the pack? How do they raise the stakes? The answer is easy, even if getting there isn't: They need to achieve superhuman levels of babe-itude.
In honor of our Hottest Bodies issue, let's look at 10 actors who attained peak hotness for a role. If Oscar were a little more ripped, these are the roles they'd give him out for.

Johnny Knoxville is making some out-of-work actors wish they'd skipped drama school and just dumped a Porta Potti on their heads. After all, the former Jackass is now a bona fide movie star, thanks to his lead role in The Dukes of Hazzard. And despite persistent gossip linking him to his Dukes costar Jessica Simpson, the Knoxville, Tenn., native (born Philip John Clapp) is a married father: He and wife Melanie have a daughter, Madison, 9. Knoxville, 34, talked recently about getting dramatic, his nightmarish Daisy Duke experience and those darn Jessica rumors.

Jessica Simpson shouldn't expect any fan mail from Ben Jones, a former Georgia congressman who played wisecracking mechanic "Cooter" on TV's 1979-85 Dukes of Hazzard.

Jessica Simpson is still jockeying to become America's favorite rural babe. But for now, Warner Bros. has put up its Dukes: Johnny Knoxville and Seann William Scott have just been cast, respectively, as Luke and Bo Duke, those fast-drivin' good ol' boys, in the big-screen adaptation of the 1979-85 The Dukes of Hazzard TV series, PEOPLE reports in its latest issue.
