If we’re being totally truthful, 2015 was a banner year for the ladies onscreen. We’ve seen the return and emergence of many a badass woman over the past twelve months, that’s for sure.
Of course, that doesn’t mean there weren’t more than a handful of fantastic male characters to appreciate this year. From complicated anarchist hackers to heartthrob post-apocalyptic antiheroes, these were the men we absolutely couldn’t get enough of in 2015.
2. Elliot Alderson, Mr. Robot
Rami Malek gave what was hands-down one of the best performances (male or female) of 2015 in the USA Network series Mr. Robot. Playing an unstable but brilliant hacker, who becomes embroiled in an increasingly complex, global hacking plot, Malek’s Elliot Alderson was endlessly enthralling and an absolute must-watch character. Elliot was also one of the more complicated characters of the year, walking the fine line between hero and villain.
