Yesterday a campaign worker for my candidate came to the door and I was like, Nothing will keep me from voting for that man tomorrow - NOTHING!!! I think I sort of scared her. Nearly every house on my block has a sign for my candidate, and I am so filled with pride for it. Go vote people!
Literary Escapism is the most excellently newsy blog sometimes. I learned there today that Outlander has been optioned for film, and there is already scouting in Scotland happening. I'd heard somewhere else about this being a film (sorry I can't remember where or I'd say!), but not that it was so advanced. And who will play Clare and Jamie? Possibly James McAvoy and Keira Knightley!!
McAvoy will really have to redeem himself for me. He was in WANTED, which got my vote for the most crappy film of the year I can't even believe I saw. But the script was horrible, and I felt the hero was morally a shit, even though the movie didn't position him that way, so maybe McAvoy is actually a brilliant actor who was correctly interpreting the script by fully playing the hero as the worst kind of guy that some people admire but I hate. I know that doesn't make much sense. On the plus side, he looks like Jamie. Yay for redheads!
UPDATE: I heard somewhere else that Gerard Butler was being considered for the role. Better?
UPDATE: Help cast Jamie! See above.
