Every year Crushable takes on the exciting project of finding and identifying the 25 most crushable guys under 25. The yearly scientific endeavor frequently spots the up-and-coming stars who you can expect to see and hear from in the movies, on the TV, and blasting on your iPod. We’re covering actors, musicians and athletes. The trifecta of men who make your world go round. More

We can’t explain why everyone is so obsessed with upcoming film Hunger Games and all the recent casting news. But we can say that all the buzz is good news for all the young actors being cast in the film, including 18-year-old Josh Hutcherson, who won the part of Peeta Mellark earlier this month. More
Take a look around network television today and you’ll see lots actors of Indian descent playing roles like sidekick or comic foil. Just look at Aziz Ansari on Parks and Recreation, Danny Pudi on Community or the whole cast of Outsourced (which also has roles for Indian actors such as straight man, love interest and villain). But there isn’t an Indian on TV playing a character like Arjun Gupta‘s Sam on Nurse Jackie, an alcoholic male nurse struggling with his addiction. As a foil for Jackie (Edie Falco) in earlier seasons, Sam is still learning the ropes at All Saints Hospital as the Showtime drama started its third season last month.
Tall and lanky, with shaggy hair and a disarming boyish grin, 24-year-old Arjun is not what casting directors are looking for when they create Indian characters, so he’s made his living by being cast in parts originally dreamed up as white or Latino. Like Sam. “I’m very Americanized,” Arjun told us about his look. “I don’t look that much like a nerd, and I think that’s a big problem for [casting directors]. I walk into a room and honestly sometimes they’re looking for the goofy-looking Big Bang Theory or Rules of Engagement Indian. But that’s changing slowly. As we counteract what it means to be an Indian, people will write new roles.”
Being a minority isn’t the only challenge Arjun’s faced. He’s also young and inexperienced, but learning the ropes one audition, one movie and one role at a time. He spoke to us about his experience working for three seasons on Nurse Jackie, his relationship with his castmates — including Edie — and the side projects that keep him motivated, like volunteering with children in Uganda.

Liam Hemsworth‘s 27-year-old brother Chris is about to become mega-famous, thanks to a tiny movie you may have heard of: Thor. But Liam, whose other claim to fame is being Miley Cyrus‘ ex — the one who starred in Miley Cyrus vehicle The Last Song with the Achy Breaky Heart spawn — is soon going to be starring in not one but two of his own blockbusters.

Looks like a lot of Crushable readers were watching this year’s slam dunk contest during the NBA’s All Star weekend. Because when we asked you to pick your favorite athletic crush to make it onto our 25 Crushable Guys Under 25 list, slam dunk contest winner Blake Griffin took the competition by a landslide. (For those of you who missed it, Blake leapt over a car to win the night.) More
Aubrey ‘Drake’ Graham is multi-talented, make no mistake about it. He first got a taste of the spotlight as an actor, most notably playing the role of Jimmy on Canadian teen soap Degrassi. He’s starred in movies, like Charlie Bartlett, with the likes of Robert Downey, Jr. and Kat Dennings. And when he decided to pursue a career as a rapper, he joined forces with the Young Money powerhouse and its leader, Lil Wayne.
Even before he released his first album, Thank Me Later, last year, Drake had worked with some big names in the music biz. His collaborator list is long — too long to even put here. He’s even been romantically linked to some of his collaborators, most recently Nicki Minaj and Rihanna, not to mention all the girls from his music videos, like Sophia Marie and Maliah Michel. More
Let’s just say I don’t have a typical 28-year-old woman’s taste in men. It’s not that I don’t see the attraction in the glittering, tan abs of more age appropriate hottie, like Ryan Reynolds, let’s say. I just also get tingles at the thought of George Clooney or Alec Baldwin‘s raspy voice in my ear. Maybe I have daddy issues. More
Here at Crushable, we pride ourselves at being able to pick cute and adorable men out of a lineup. And once a year, we like to make a bit of science out of it. Last year’s picks from our Crushable 25 List went on to some major achievements, including starring in films that grossed over $200 million (Daniel Radcliffe and Taylor Lautner), acting from an Oscar winning screenplay (Max Minghella) and releasing a new album that went platinum in the first month (Drake). One is also now a new dad (ahem, Aaron Johnson).
And so we present this year’s list. Some of our choices are obvious (Justin Bieber anyone?) others are less so. This year we’ve expanded the list to include some awesome tech stars and emerging internet talents. We’ve compiled the list by using a super secret algorithm that involves OMGICU statisticians*, the important Crushable Factor** and glitter***. And with no further adieu, we present you with Crushable’s 25 Most Crushable Guys Under 25 for 2011. Enjoy! You’ll be seeing a lot more of these guys over the next year. More
