Who’s Your Favorite Knight In Shining Armor?

By: Todd Gilchrist / February 28, 2013

On Friday, Jack the Giant Killer stomps its way into theaters, bringing with it not only some statuesque monsters with a penchant for alliteration, but two great-looking leading men – Ewan McGregor and Nicholas Hoult – who do battle dressed like the sexiest Tin Men you’ve ever seen.

All of which reminded us: there have been a lot of heroic knights who made their armor shine particularly bright.

As such, Celebuzzassembled a gallery of the hottest armor-clad hunks in recent movie history. Starting with Hoult and McGregor and jumping back through the last 20 years or so of cinema, we’ve compiled a “hot list” of leading men who make “getting medieval on that ass” seem like particularly fun way to spend an evening.

For the record, this list is by no means exhaustive – we elected not to include the timeless sexiness of Sean Connery, for example, since most of his work with a sword and shield took place during his septuagenarian years rather than back in the Bond days.

But we included Leonardo DiCaprio (Romeo + Juliet), Heath Ledger (A Knight’s Tale) and hunk du jour Channing Tatum (The Eagle) among many others, ensuring that readers find at least one fellow whose steel-clad silhouette is irresistible to them.

What do you think of our list? And who did we forget? Leave your suggestions and objections in the comments section below!
