Why The Blacklist’s Tom Keen is So Hot

Tyler and I started watching The Blacklist a couple weeks ago and I quickly became obsessed. This happened for a ton of reasons (I mean, it’s a really great show) but especially because of Tom Keen (played by Ryan Eggold).

I love him.

This is probably the first time I’ve had a celeb crush on someone who isn’t a teenage pop star, besides when I was obsessed with Dan Radcliffe at age 13. This is a big deal for someone who was in love with Justin Bieber last year. Ryan Eggold is straight up 30 instead of 16 – 20. Maybe I’m finally getting old?

I can’t stop looking at Instagram pics of him, perusing  his Twitter, and watching interviews about the show on YouTube. The weird thing is, Ryan Eggold played Ryan Matthews on 90210 but I never thought he was hot then. I didn’t even realize he was the same guy until I started creeping on him online. I think it partly has to do with the fact that his hair was long then and that his character was your typical nice dude. His nice character would be the guy you want in real life, but he’s not the kind of guy you get a super crush on on TV. The “bad” characters are way more entertaining.

Anyway, here’s my list of reasons why I think Tom Keen / Ryan Eggold is so hot. If you haven’t seen the show yet, you should stop reading. There are some spoilers!
