Vote in the Anglo Fan Favorites Tournament, Round 2: Men of 2011

VOTING IN ROUND 2 IS CLOSED… CONGRATS TO THE CHAMPION, ALAN RICKMAN

We’ve entered Week 2 of our quest to name the ultimate Anglophile fan favorite of 2011. In Round 1, more than 120,000 votes were cast, and a somewhat surprising group of men advanced. Colin Firth, Richard Armitage, David Tennant, and Benedict Cumberbatch all skated into this week, but we saw heavy-hitters like Robert Pattinson, Daniel Craig, Ricky Gervais, John Barrowman and Matt Smith all eliminated.

Week after week, the pool of contestants will shrink until we have one man standing. Sixteen men remain in eight epic battles – there’s only one thing left to do. Vote! (Note: polls close Thursday at noon ET.)

VOTE IN ROUND 2!

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.
