The Most Influential Men Around Today

The Most Influential Men Around Today, One guy outranks Barack Obama, Ryan Gosling, and Bill Clinton - and he's not even real. Why James Bond is AskMen's Most Influential Man of 2012, With a new movie on the way in November, the 50th anniversary of his namesake franchise, and a buzzed-about appearance at the London Olympics, James Bond is having a pretty big year. And today it just got even bigger, as 007 took home the No. 1 spot on AskMen's list of the Top 49 Most Influential Men of 2012.

AskMen's annual feature, now in its seventh year, received over 500,000 votes from men around the world. The votes determined the men who have had the biggest impact on their lives over the past 12 months, and while it may surprise some that a fictional character can rank higher than real-life role models like Bill Clinton (No. 3) and Barack Obama (No. 11), there's certainly past precedent for Bond's win. Back in 2010, "Mad Men's" Don Draper was similarly named No. 1.
