Sorry, nerds, this one isn't for you. But for you ladies and gents who are heading to Middle-earth (or at least a midnight screening of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey) for a healthy dose of man candy, we've got you covered!

From Orlando Bloom to Viggo Mortensen, from Frodo Baggins to...a dragon?! We ventured far and wide (trust us, there was a lot of walking) to find the sexiest studs from The Lord of the Rings saga. Sorry, Gollum, but you didn't make the cut. This year.
