Hottest '90s Heartthrobs of 2012

Best of 2012: Who's the Hottest '90s Comeback Kid?

Are we closing out 2012 or 1992? Because with the amount of '90s nostalgia back in pop culture this year, it would be an easy mistake to make. Not that we're complaining. We're suckers for all things '90s, so you can imagine we were excited this year to find out about the upcoming Boy Meets World reboot — renamed Girl Meets World — which will follow the teenage daughter of the series' original high school sweethearts Cory and Topanga (Ben Savage and Danielle Fishel). Then, of course, we were big fans of seeing Saved by the Bell's Mark-Paul Gosselaar and Clueless's Breckin Meyer back onscreen with their show Franklin & Bash. We died over the Old Navy commercials featuring Beverly Hills, 90210 alums Luke Perry and Jason Priestley. While our inner boy band groupie went bananas over the news that the Backstreet Boys are working on a new album — they even reunited in August to perform in Good Morning America's concert series. And one of our favorites would have to be watching Dawson's Creek star James Van Der Beek poke fun at his post-'90s heartthrob status by playing himself on Don't Trust the B---- in Apt. 23. But the question remains, of all the sexy '90s men making comebacks, which one would you plaster on your wall?
