1. Daniel Radcliffe: Slow Club, “Beginners”
DanRad has done a lot of things in his post-Potter career: He’s fought ghosts in The Woman in Black, he’s gotten his Broadway on in How to Succeed, he’s hosted SNL—and now he’s starred in a moody music video as an angry, pissed-off drunk. Apparently he’s a big Slow Club fan himself, too. Living the dream? Heck yes.
2. Olivia Wilde: Dashboard Confessional, “Stolen”
The gorgeous Olivia Wilde appeared in this Dashboard Confessional video right at the height of her House MD fame. I don’t know where they shot this, but I really want to go there. Don’t you?

Between this and Don’t Trust the B in Apartment 23, he’s come a long way since Dawson’s Creek!
4. Alexander Skarsgard: Lady Gaga, “Paparazzi”
Haven’t we learned by now exactly how dangerous Eric Northman can be? Seriously, Gaga! You should know better!
