For every hot actor in Hollywood, there’s an even hotter one getting less love from the Twitter mafia. Rupert Grint may have fans for his portrayal of Ron Weasley in the Harry Potter series, but unlike Daniel Radcliffe, he sure as hell doesn’t have his own Halloween costume for dogs. Let’s attempt to right that wrong with this list of our favorite second bananas, all of them considerably firmer and riper than their starring counterparts.

Ron takes a beating as dutiful right-hand man to Harry Potter and on-again off-again plaything for Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter series, suffering through broken bones, a bout with some chocolate-covered roofies, and nearly being eaten by an enormous arachnid.

Which means it’s okay to say that you’re a total fox — from that shaggy hair to those doll baby eyes to that transcendent coloring, like some sort of knight who stepped off a Renaissance tapestry. Your costar, on the other hand, looks like Frodo and Alan Thicke had a baby. Here’s hoping you get your due, or at least a break from the spiders, in the next sequel.
