Vote in the Anglo Fan Favorites Tournament: The Men of 2011

VOTING IN ROUND 1 IS CLOSED… CONGRATS TO THE CHAMPION, ALAN RICKMAN

Which guy is the ultimate Anglophile fan favorite of 2011? Colin Firth or Sean Bean? David Tennant or Damian Lewis? Ricky Gervais or Simon Pegg?

The choice is yours: we’re pitting 32 of Britain’s (and a couple of Ireland’s) most popular male TV and movie stars against each in a battle for supremacy.

And we’re doing it tournament style: each week you’ll vote for winners in a set of matchups, whittling down the field until there is one man standing — the Champion.

Rally the troops, lobby your fanbases — there’s a title on the line! (We’ll cover the Women of 2011 later this year.) Round 1 voting ends Thursday at 11 am ET.

Vote in the first round!

While not British himself - he was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri - he once received inordinate hospitality in London for sharing the name of a dead but beloved EastEnders character. His Anglophilia stems from a high school love of Morrissey, whom he calls his "gateway drug" into British culture.
