#HotScotts: A Lot of TV Actors Who Are Hot Share the Name Scott

Let's not pretend that we have a deep concept. We're not trying to shed light on the meaning of names. All we did was notice that a lot of hot guys on TV are named Scott. Does this mean something? Who cares? The parade of hot Scotts begins now. — Caroline Kepnes, Yahoo TV

Scott Foley

Scott Foley

We are on to you, Mr. Foley. You started romancing us back in the '90s on "Sweet Valley High." You played Zach and you were heavenly and you've been chasing us down ever since. You've been in so many of our favorite shows: "Scandal," "True Blood," "Cougar Town," "Grey's Anatomy." Hello, raid our DVR much? We're not complaining, Foley. You are very much welcome in our DVR. You know, now that we think about it, if we were Felicity, we'd pick Noel over Ben. Exhale. We have been struggling with that decision for years. Closure is cool.

Scott Speedman

Scott Speedman

And, we changed our minds. We pick Ben. (Sorry, Noel, but you've had practice with rejection.) Speedman is straight-up proof that God (or the "Felicity" casting agent at the WB in the mid '90s) is a woman. Just look at this man and tell us that you don't start to blush. He's the Marlboro man minus the Marlboros. You can picture him sitting in an overstuffed leather chair in a library, hunched over Jane Austen, not even realizing how hot he is, his stubble overgrown but soft, you know, because he comes from heaven!

Scott Wolf

Scott Wolf

When we hear the word "cute," we see Wolf. We can't believe that "Party of Five" aired, like, a hundred years ago. Wolf has clearly spent time in some sort of magical antiwrinkling human storage tube. He definitely looks good enough to eat, and more than good enough to reunite with Jennifer Love Hewitt's hands-on professional on "The Client List." We can picture him at the Rub ... the lights dim, his shirt comes off button by button, his pants unzip -- wait. Is this stuff being published online or something?

Scott Bakula

Scott Bakula

He's the godfather of all Scotts, if you think about it and search YouTube for Folgers Coffee commercials (not that we did that, because we didn't!). Ah, Bakula. He's the substitute teacher everyone crushed on freshman year of high school. You couldn't tell if he was 25 or 45, married or single. You just knew that he made cheap neckties and tight jeans look sexy. You thought that doing anything with him, even the laundry, would be fun. Yes, this St. Louis, Missouri, native will always be a man of a certain age who inspires quantum leaps of passion.

Scott Caan

Scott Caan

He is the boyfriend who was rude to your parents while wearing a "Broseidon Adventure" T-shirt. He made remarks about your weight and didn't even deny it. He thinks your friends are hot and he says so … to your face. But, damn, he looks great naked, so great that you want to keep him around. We don't know if the lead stud of "Hawaii Five-0" is a jerk in real life. If he's nothing like his bratty character on "Entourage," then he deserves an Emmy for Hottest Dirtbag Ever, or maybe a Teen Choice Surfboard. 'Cause then he'd want to put on his swim trunks. And that would make us happy.

Scott Porter

Scott Porter

"Hart of Dixie" plot we'd like to see: Doc Zoe (Rachel Bilson) decides to go back to the city. She places an ad on Craigslist for someone to sublet her whole life, including the part where she's all over this hot lawyer. We reply to that ad and Porter is totally ours. Rejoice! In real life, we've been watching Porter since he was wounded and vulnerable as all get-out on "Friday Night Lights." He's grown up now, married just days ago in Dripping Springs, Texas. His wedding-day tweet: "Today is the day. There are no more tomorrows. And I could NOT be happier." Sounds like he'll make a terrible, unloving husband. HA.

Adam Scott

Adam Scott

If you're single and you go to an online dating site, you're probably thinking, "This isn't a waste of time. Maybe there's a guy like Adam Scott out there for me: handsome, kind, just bashful enough to be cute without seeming immature, bright eyes, a quick wit, thick hair, but doesn't hide behind his thick hair or his snarky jokes." He exists … on TV. Yep, Ben Wyatt of "Parks and Recreation" is reason enough to move to Pawnee, Indiana. Of course, that's not actually possible. Ben's married and Pawnee is a make-believe city. But we bet you'd get coffee with the cad he played on "Tell Me You Love Me." Yep, he's that cute.

Scott Disik

Scott Disick

It's hard to believe that Alanis Morissette wasn't thinking of this naughty Scottie when she wrote her oeuvre of I'm-mad-at-a-man scream-songs. All we can say is, this Professional Kardashian Baby Daddy is lucky, because no matter what he does, no matter how many times he looks in the mirror, no matter how popped his collar, no matter how dense his brain, no matter how unabashed his hunger for attention, we love us some Lord Disick. We get why Kourtney sticks around: He makes us laugh, and when he's not a total DB (which does happen), he can be seriously sweet. And he has a cute butt.

Scott Baio

Scott Baio

If men had to pass a test and get a license to wear Speedos, Baio would ace that test with flying, toned colors. He is the poster boy for '80s hot. Looking at him makes us want to play Whitesnake and wear white jeans and drink Orange Julius and plaster the walls with "Charles in Charge" posters. And the best part about this vintage Baio? He's back. We almost drove into an oncoming Hyundai on Sunset Boulevard because of the billboard for Baio's new series, "See Dad Run." See girls run red lights is more like it.

Campbell Scott

Campbell Scott

And the John Cusack Award for Utter and Total Likability and Sex Appeal and Sweet Shyness as Displayed in "Singles" / Would Rescue a Kitten Out of a Tree and Bring Flowers to a Girl for No Reason with Great Frequency / Dramatic and Comic Depth in All Interactions goes to Campbell Scott. This "Royal Pains" regular would actually listen to your aunt tell her story about bad breakfast at a B&B in northern Vermont for the 50th time … and enjoy it. Do we know this for a fact? No. But we feel it, in our heart.

Reid Scott

Reid Scott

You just can't peg this slippery Scott. He's a bro -- "My Boys" -- and you can play poker and pal around with him. But then he's in a white coat, hot-to-trot in the polite, healing sort of way -- "The Big C" -- and then he's on "Veep" in a tailored suit being a know-it-all guy you wish you could hate but you just. Simply. Can't. Reid melts our brain. He's the human equivalent of a fresh quart of ice cream in your freezer after you just ate a cheeseburger and skipped the gym and all you wanna do is gorge on cookie dough and decide whether your meet-cute with him will happen at Baskin-Robbins or Ben & Jerry's.

Scott Michael Foster

Scott Michael Foster

In the good old days, this wide-eyed Pisces played a goofball frat boy named Cappie on ABC Family's "Greek." Well, Foster traded in the red cups and stinky T-shirts for adult clothes, in which he looks even better. "Zero Hour" didn't turn into a primetime "Da Vinci Code," but we are fine with that. We like our Cappie in more risqué fare. He was born to play a mini (Hank) Moody on "Californication," and we would be more into that show if he were still in it. Oh -- as if he's not hot already, get this: Foster is also a singer. Hey, where's that astrological compatibility chart?

Scott Patterson

Scott Patterson

You're driving through Connecticut and your car breaks down. And because your life is like a Katherine Heigl movie, you break down in the sweetest town ever, Stars Hollow. You're starving, and you have super-Heigl-high metabolism, so when this grumpy youngish man suggest that you order something hot and fatty, you slam the menu shut and make small talk with him. Six months later, you're married in a gazebo and Lorelai Gilmore is giving you the evil eye, but you don't care because you have a manly husband who can cook for you. That's what happened in the series finale of "Gilmore Girls," right?

Dougray Scott

Dougray Scott

Imagine if Scotland were populated entirely by hot guys named Scott. It's not. But if you embarked on a loch-side stroll in the land of kilts, you actually could run into the hottie of "Hemlock Grove," aka Mr. Scott from Scotland. If Wikipedia is accurate (and when isn't it?), Dougray dropped out of a tiny indie movie called "X-Men" because Tom Cruise "handpicked" him for "Mission Impossible II." And get this: Dougray was locked to play Wolverine. This Scott was almost a wolf. Which takes us back to Scott Wolf. Which means the Scotts could be a wolf pack. We take it back. This does mean something.
