Chris Hemsworth, Daniel Craig, George Clooney: Hunks Who Got Their Start in Sci-Fi/Fantasy Films (PHOTOS)

Of all the harsh realities made clear by the gender gap, perhaps the truest is that – as of this Friday – girlfriends everywhere will be dragged reluctantly to see The Hobbit. This time, however, Peter Jackson’s journey through Middle Earth has been stripped of its eye-candy, swapping Orlando Bloom and Viggo Mortensen for a handful of dwarves, Dr. Watson and a geezer. While the movie will no doubt be epic, the real scenery will undoubtedly be just that: the actual scenery.

All of which made us consider just how many dramatic, respected and handsome leading men – prime examples of non-nerd masculinity – actually made some of their biggest breakthroughs in sci-fi, fantasy and all-around geek adventures. Read on to find out…

Many of the actors on Celebuzz’ list certainly had credits prior to their turns in fantasy films – Mortensen worked steadily as a supporting player for more than a decade before striking paydirt with the Lord of the Rings series, for example.

And although many of them have gone on to even greater glories, they first became popular in the public consciousness because of these projects. On the other hand, some of them may never surpass the success they enjoyed with these films and film series. But as cinephiles and avid filmgoers, we’re only too happy to celebrate – and maybe in a few cases, reintroduce – the sci-fi-, horror and fantasy films that helped the world fall in love with them.

Which of these hunks is your favorite — or which appeared in your favorite fantasy film? Keep the discussion going in the comments section after watching the theatrical trailer for The Hobbit below!

Daniel Radcliffe: Whistler Film Festival Q&A

Daniel Radcliffe: Whistler Film Festival Q&A

Daniel Radcliffe hits up the red carpet at the 2012 Whistler Film Festival on Saturday afternoon (December 1) in British Colombia, Canada.

The 23-year-old actor took some time out of filming Horns for a Q&A session at the annual festival.

“It’s also one of the most beautiful love stories I’ve ever read,” Daniel shared of the film. “It’s very violent, and really funny, and it’s great. People are so keen to put a film into a genre — that’s the easiest way to market it. And I’m sure when Horns is coming out, you’ll see it marked as a horror, or whatever it is. But it’s so many things. And the harder a film is to define, the better it probably is.”

Daniel also added of A Young Doctor’s Handbook, “I think it’s probably the only TV series set in Russia in 1917 that features nothing about the Russian Revolution. At one point I get a letter from my friend telling me about these amazing, exciting moments of political change, and [my character is] just stuck in these backwoods. It’s basically a comedy about isolation and loneliness, and morphine and syphilis.”

Flashback Friday: Robert Pattinson in ‘Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire’ (VIDEO)

What do Twilight and Harry Potter have in common? Elaborate themes of fantasy? That one’s a given. Dedicated cult followings? The numbers prove that. But what about Robert Pattinson?

That last one might come as a shock to some; but believe it or not, there was life for RPattz before Bella and Edward.

Just nine years ago, one of today’s most talked about movie stars was just a regular teen, acting in amateur plays in London theater, far away from Hollywood drama and cheating scandals.

Then, in 2003, a 17-year-old Pattinson landed the highly coveted role of Cedric Diggory, a handsome Hufflepuff in 2005’s Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. And the rest is history.

This particular Potter flick centers around an esteemed competition for which young wizards are chosen to represent their schools. But, when Cedric and Harry are both selected as Hogwarts’ finest, the sportsmanlike games quickly turn into a death mission, carefully orchestrated by the film’s evil villain Lord Voldemort.

In this pivotal scene, Cedric and Harry (Daniel Radcliffe) race through an ominous maze to the “Goblet of Fire” in what is supposed to be the final challenge. But, it all goes terribly awry when the young wizards wind up in Voldemort’s company and poor Cedric is killed on the spot.

As Pattinson acknowledged in a 2011 interview with SheKnows.com, “When Harry Potter came along, it was a huge step and a massive event in my life!”

Looks like we can thank their casting director for bringing R.Pattz overseas and into our lives.

Check out the clip above for the role that sent Pattinson skyrocketing for international stardom, and don’t miss the final installment of Stephanie Meyer’s vampire series The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn: Part 2, in theaters Friday.

Based on the short stories of Mikhail Bulgakov, the Alex Hardcastle-directed show stars Jon, 41, as a post-WWI doctor struggling to come to grips with his self-doubt. He often interacts with his younger self (Radcliffe) and makes hilariously sarcastic observations.

Daniel Radcliffe Plays Young Version of Jon Hamm in ‘A Young Doctor’s Notebook’

Daniel Radcliffe and Mad Men star Jon Hamm are both good looking fellas in their own right, but do they look like each other? That’s the idea behind the new U.K. miniseries A Young Doctor’s Notebook, where Daniel plays a younger version of Jon, that just released a new trailer. It’s described as “a four-part comedy-drama based on a collection of semi-autobiographical short stories by Russian writer and playwright Mikhail Bulgakov. Radcliffe plays a young doctor working in a small village in 1917, and Hamm plays his older version; the two meet is a series of exchanges throughout.” It will debut in the U.K. on December 6, but so far, there are no plans to air in the states.

Do you think Daniel is convincing enough to play a younger Jon? Or do you think they don’t look enough alike? Sound off in the comments!
