AfterElton.com gay mens reader’s hot 100 list vote Luke MacFarlane as Number Three
Making the highest debut of anyone on the Hot 100 List is, 28-year-old Canadian Luke MacFarlane rocketing into the third position. The secret to his stunning success? Portraying Brothers & Sisters’ adorable Scotty Wandell, who recently “wed” his partner Kevin Walker (Matthew Rhys) in television’s highest profile same-sex commitment ceremony, certainly didn’t hurt; nor did MacFarlane’s decision to come out to a Canadian newspaper last April. Throw in the fact that the frequently stubble-faced thespian is not only smoking hot, but possesses an innate sweetness that caused fans to fall hard for his portrayal of the sometimes hapless Scotty, and you have his recipe for success.
MacFarlane’s profile will likely on increase this fall when Brothers & Sisters returns to ABC and fans tune in to see what’s next for Kevin and Scotty. Additionally, in November, Canadian audiences can see MacFarlane play James Nichol in Iron Road, a TV mini-series set in 1882 about an immigrant Chinese woman who falls for the son of a railroad tycoon. The role casts as MacFarlane as the heterosexual love interest — adding yet another actor to the growing list who have proven being a gay heartthrob doesn’t mean you can’t play a straight love interest.
