Ultimate Law-Enforcement Crushes Bracket Tournament: Who Deserves an Invite?

If you’ve ever gotten weak in the knees watching a TV character in a Kevlar vest and gun holster, you won’t want to stray far from TVLine.com during the month of September. As summer winds down, we’ll be launching the Ultimate Law-Enforcement Crushes Bracket Tournament, a 64-player battle to determine who is TV’s most desirable crime-fighter. But before we kick things off, we need your help: Our tournament will include cops, detectives, crime-scene investigators, military police, FBI and CIA agents of the male and female variety — and we’ll be including series both past and present (so fans of The X Files, Alias, and NYPD Blue will have just as much reason to get excited as Bones, NCIS, and Rizzoli & Isles aficionados).

So head on down to the comments and tell us which law-enforcement hotties deserve a spot in our lineup. We’ll peruse all your nominations, then narrow it down to the 32 men and 32 women who serve up justice with a heaping side order of sexy. And for up-to-the-minute alerts on each of our single-elimination showdowns, follow me on Twitter @MichaelSlezakTV!

Now, ready, set, brainstorm!

Comments are monitored, so don’t go off topic, don’t frakkin’ curse and don’t bore us with how much your coworker’s sister-in-law makes per hour. Talk smart about TV!

      If you’re looking to nominate Jamie Bamber (Adama), better to go with his character from Law & Order: UK in my opinion. :)

  48. Pat says:

    Gotta put Booth and Bones in there. I guess Booth is really the law enforcement, but she makes the partner ship. You definitely need Castle and Beckett, Ziva and Dinozzo. But above all, Gibbs is the most important for NCIS. And what about Mark Harman as Special Agent Simon Donovan on the West Wing? That’s the job that got him NCIS, and it was one of my favorite West Wing arcs.

  49. Marie says:

    I nominate agent fox mulder and agent seeley booth.

  50. Alleah says:

    Raylan Givens (Justified)
    Agent Hendrickson (Supernatural)
    Jason Stackhouse (True Blood)
    Does Sideways Sawyer from the last season of Lost count? Because he was awesome.
