TV Guide's going for some hot fun in the summertime with its Hottest Men issue -- and on tonight's ET, we have your exclusive preview of the A to Z of it, actually the A to W of it as JENSEN ACKLES ("Supernatural"), JAMIE BAMBER ("Battlestar Galactica"), DAVID BOREANAZ ("Bones"), RICARDO ANTONIO CHAVIRA ("Desperate Housewives"), DAVID CONRAD ("Ghost Whisperer"), SCOTT FOLEY ("The Unit"), CARMINE GIOVINAZZO ("CSI: NY"), DANIEL DAE KIM ("Lost"), WENTWORTH MILLER ("Prison Break"), JESSE SPENCER ("House"), ISAIAH WASHINGTON ("Grey's Anatomy") and MICHAEL WEATHERLY ("NCIS") pose for photographer RODOLFO MARTINEZ for the issue on the stands Thursday, June 15.
"I don't want to say that I'm supporting that kind of egotism, but any kind of positive exposure at this point in my career, I am all for," says a modest Isaiah, on being named one of the sexiest men on TV.
He and buddy Ricardo have been phoning each other and ribbing each other about the honor, but Ricardo says that he hasn't told anyone else, except, of course, his publicist. He wants his family and friends to be surprised when they see the issue.
However, fans of the "Desperate Housewives" star will see a whole new look when Ricardo's photo is revealed.
"I needed a little separation from my show, and I go back home to South Texas and it is unbearably hot there. I used to shave my head every summer and play basketball outside and I said, 'Why not?'" the newly bald Ricardo explains about his summer 'do.
Because it was too difficult to winnow the field of hot hunks down to just one [wouldn't be hard for me], TV Guide will be releasing four different covers: Wentworth, Isaiah, Daniel and Ricardo have been selected as coverboys for the issue.
For a sneak peek at the Hottest Men issue of TV Guide, tune in to tonight's ET!
