Why is Terry Richardson No 29?

When Danish model Rie Rasmussen accused Terry Richardson of sexual harassment last year, it seemed as though the career of fashion’s hottest photographer was about to come to a grinding halt. But all it takes today is one flip through any major magazine, and it’s plain to see that didn’t happen, with “Uncle Terry’s” photographs as ubiquitous as ever. Known for his graphic, stripped-down style, Richardson is becoming almost as famous as the celebrities he shoots, and considering that recent muses include everyone from megastars like Lady Gaga and Beyonce to New York’s hipster elite, that’s saying something.

Why is Peter Dinklage No 30?

HBO’s smash series Game of Thrones is filled with breakout stars, but none bigger than Peter Dinklage. Ironic as it may be that the show’s biggest star measures in at a mere 4' 5", Dinklage was born to play Tyrion Lannister, the conniving dwarf who is a central piece of writer George R. R. Martin’s complex puzzle. After breaking out in the 2003 Sundance darling The Station Agent, Dinklage has maintained a steady career marked with displays of talent that give weight to the old adage "Good things come in small packages." We can’t wait for Season 2.

Why is Louis C.K. No 31?

Normally overweight and balding divorced men in their mid-40s don’t get second chances. Just don’t tell that to Louis C.K. When Lucky Louie -- the veteran comedian’s first stab at being Jerry Seinfeld with an enema -- was canceled by HBO after just one season, the stand-up specialist took his guttural brand of observational comedy to FX, where Louie has quietly become one of the most critically acclaimed comedies on television. The show has now been picked up for its third season, and C.K. has complete control over the heavily autobiographical series, which he writes, directs, edits, and, of course, stars in. If being a lonely, grumpy, single dad is consistently this hilarious, where do we sign up?

Why is Mark Cuban No 32?

Call it a coincidence, but the moment Mark Cuban stopped talking the talk, his team finally walked the walk. After years of bitter disappointment at the hands of lesser opponents, Cuban’s Dallas Mavericks won the NBA championship, defeating the heavily favored but universally despised Miami Heat. Cuban, one of professional sports’ most charismatic and outspoken owners, has usually let his theatrical antics and disparaging comments about league officials overshadow his actual team. This year, however, the billionaire remained curiously silent until the final buzzer sounded. This time, we all screamed along with him.

Why is Soleio Cuervo No 33?

If Mark Zuckerberg is the face of Facebook, then Soleio Cuervo is its hands. Cuervo, who works as a product designer for the social networking giant, was instrumental in implementing the thumbs-up "Like" button, which was introduced in February of 2009 and has since become a global icon, used on over 2.5 million other websites. The task was simple: Come up with a universal way for Facebook’s users to express their approval of something. Cuervo, who studied composition at Duke University and learned how to program websites by creating one for his band at the time, settled on the less aggressive thumbs-up symbol to replace the more suggestive heart, which was more common at the time. So the next time a really pretty girl likes one of your profile pictures, you have Soleio Cuervo to thank for it.

Why is Elon Musk No 34?

Jon Favreau famously proclaimed that Tesla CEO Elon Musk was a major source of inspiration for Tony Stark. But perhaps we’re in need of a more apt comparison: Steve Jobs. The man who invented PayPal has been compared to the former Apple CEO on more than one occasion, thanks to his desire to not just succeed in the auto industry, but to revolutionize it with his focus on electric cars. Some think that Musk’s new Model S, which is said get 300 miles per full charge, at a base price of just $49,500, will change the auto industry in 10 years more than the industry has changed in the last hundred. That sounds pretty Steve Jobsian to us.

Why is Jimmy Fallon No 35?

Remember when Jimmy Fallon was a controversial choice to replace Conan O’Brien as the host of Late Night in 2008? Neither do we. Now in its third season, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon has officially made after-hours cool again, with its deft combination of finger-on-the-pulse sketches, viral-video-worthy musical performances, and then there’s that host. Fallon uses an infectious combination of hipster dorkiness and fanboy glee to convince us that even Channing Tatum playing Wii for 10 minutes is, like, the coolest thing ever. And for Jimmy Fallon, it probably is.
