Nightcrawler: You have to give Jake Gyllenhaal some credit: Dude is not afraid to go full-creep if a role demands it. In Dan Gilroy’s scathing indictment of mass media and gore-celebrating TV journalism, Gyllenhaal plays a gaunt sociopath who looks as if he’s survived for months on Jolly Ranchers and cigarette ashes. Seeking some kind of direction in his life, he becomes an indispensable freelance cameraman for a desperate local L.A. affiliate. He films the city’s murders, fires, car accidents and other assorted horrors on his all-night shift to bolster their sagging morning ratings. The film is brilliantly unsettling.

Jake Gyllenhaal makes Santa sexy in a scene from Jarhead.
I gave myself the difficult task of scouring the web and Instagram for sexy male Santa photos. It all started when I was out shopping over the weekend and saw a rack of Santa hats for sale. Suddenly, my mind went zooming to its naughtier regions, where I was reminded of that oh-so-hot scene in Jarhead when Jake Gyllenhaal dances around in his army tent wearing nothing but two Santa hats, one on his head and one on his you-know-what. (If you don’t know what I’m talking about: here. You’re welcome.)
So in honor of a holiday fantasy that, I’m sure, will forever live on in the minds of gay men (and some of you ladies) across the world, I give to you a slideshow of 25 of the sexiest Santas I could find. Happy holigays!
