Midweek Mancandy: The Guys of "Harry Potter"

It's Wednesday, which means it's time for MANCANDY! (We've changed the name of this feature because mancandy sounds so much more fun.)

And this week, you're going to have mancandy overload because we are featuring the good-looking men of "Harry Potter," since the VERY LAST MOVIE EVER is coming out on Friday!

Firstly, I have to say it's slightly weird to be like "ooooh, mancandy!" over most of the guys from "Harry Potter," since they were but wee lads when we first saw them on the silver screen back in 2001. Holy shit, that was a long time ago.

Alas, most of the guys from that movie have grown up to be delicious, as they showed during the UK premiere of "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2," and far be it for me to deny their mancandy status. So here we go...

(All photos are from The Leaky Cauldron, which has a truly wonderful and comprehensive gallery of photos from the Harry Potter premieres, as well as comprehensive information about everything Harry Potter. Check them out because they are great.)

First we have Tom Felton, who played villain Draco Malfoy. He is quite a good looking chap, is he not? And, apparently, in real life, he is not an evil little shit like Draco. In fact, according to Wikipedia, he loves sports, especially fishing. Evil people don't love fishing!

Next, we have Matthew Lewis, who plays Neville Longbottom. Who knew that the guy who played Neville, the resident Hogwarts nerd, would be the breakout hottie of the movies? But look at him at the premiere! He is a damn fine looking guy, and his look is only improved by the fact that he is wearing a three-piece suit. That is Kel's favorite kind of menswear, apparently, and really, who can argue with her? The addition of the vest makes guys look hella-good.

Next we have the Phelps twins, James and Oliver, who play the Weasley twins in the "Harry Potter" movies. They have been favorites of mine and Kel's since they first appeared on screen. That is probably at least partly because we also love the Weasley twins. But aren't they cute? They just look so happy and, again, they're wearing three piece suits, which makes them look sharp!

And finally ...

How could we forget Harry himself, Dan Radcliffe? He's grown up from a dorky little kid to an adorably dorky adult. Kel might disagree, but I wouldn't necessarily call Radcliffe "mancandy," but there is no denying that he is adorable. And talented. Seriously, this guy has a great career ahead of him. I've loved watching him embody Harry Potter for TEN FREAKING YEARS (which makes me feel old), and I can't wait to see what he does next.

But I am really going to miss Harry Potter.
