6. Matt Bomer. Bomer's show, White Collar has been around since 2009, but people who weren't fans of the show didn't really get to know the actor until this year. He appeared on Glee, playing Blaine's older brother. That entire fandom gobbled the actor up and welcomed him with open arms. Following that, all the publicity surrounding Magic Mike helped him gather more of a fan base. Ever since that movie, and him being a contender for the role of Christian Grey in Fifty Shades of Grey, everyone knows who he is.
