Friday Beefcake: Science is Sexy!

Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark in Iron Man 2The monicure “sexy scientist” is one usually reserved for large-breasted women in lab coats in a sci-fi movie. But men can be just as sexy in (and out of) a lab coat, too! Last week we celebrated Braun, but today we're celebrating the brains that make us love our heroes so much. So let's here it for the boys!

Doctor Gordon Freeman, from the Half Life/Half Life 2 series of video games.

He's a theoretical physicist who defends the human race from hostile aliens and their human conspirators using everything from a crowbar to a gravity gun. And he wears his glasses the whole time.

There's nothing sexier than an alien-killing hot scientist in glasses.

Hahaha, @MFrampton! Frank N Furter! If only I had Tim Curry's legs... I swear, I think I have a reverse Clark Kent disorder--the second a guy puts on glasses, I immediately find him more attractive. Maybe that's why I love scientists so much!

@redline_ for a second I thought you were referring to @KaraBraden's pic of Dr. Gordon Freeman, who could totally pass as RDJ, yes?

I'm glad to see Gordon get appreciated. Him and Chell for eva.

I still think this list is sorely lacking in Nye, Tyson, and Sagan.

Doctor Who--the 10th doctor, he's a time travelling scientist, no?
