Movies are full of bromances, from Robert Redford and Paul Newman in Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid to Jay and Silent Bob in the Clerks movies and more. And don't forget pretty boys Brad Pitt and George Clooney. But there are plenty of man-duos on TV, too:
Jack Bauer and Tony Almeida (24): Will they hug or kill each other at the end of the day?
Ryan Seacrest and Simon Cowell (American Idol): Those little love spats on the air are just for show.
J.D. and Turk (Scrubs): "Vanilla Bear" and "Chocolate Bear" show more affection than most married couples.
House and Wilson (House): Sometimes you have to break up to find true bromance.
Derek and Sloan (Grey's Anatomy): Their love-hate relationship (Sloan slept with Derek's then-wife) has more sparks than Derek and Meredith's.
Ted, Marshall and Barney (How I Met Your Mother): A rare threesome.
Brody Jenner and Frankie Delgado: Brody picked a new bro on his reality show Bromance, but isn't Frankie jealous?
Fred and Barney (The Flintstones): Yabba-dabba-true love survives fur-ocious Water Buffalo hats.
Jerry Seinfeld and George Costanza (Seinfeld): The funniest bromance about nothing at all.
Joey and Chandler (Friends): Foosball forever!
Signs of a man crush
, "This guy in a ball cap and coat with the collar up sits next to me. We talked the whole game and he was just everything I thought he would be: smart, levelheaded, charming, hilarious." — Zac Efron, on his new man crush, Leonardo DiCaprio
