Vote for your fave Jamie! (and others, but who cares about them.)



Thanks for all the great nominations.
FOUR polls are up on the sidebar at the left.


I have no doubt the casting director of the upcoming Outlander movie will be watching the outcome with great interest, so please, people, you must meticulously examine the nomination photos from the Cry for Help post below and cast your vote carefully.


UPDATE: Tumperkin didn't arrive in time to nominate her non-actor Jamie lookalike, Scottish Ski Racer Alain Baxter! The photo she sent wasn't quite proper, so I found a clothed one.  We'll put him here for inspiration.

UPDATE: Oh, excuse me, I didn't put up cute enough pictures of Tumperkin's fella, Alain.  Here are some new ones she has supplied.  Yes, these are better.  Sorry for the dorky one!  

Above left, this would be a good face for him to make when he whips Clare with the belt. Or when Billy Boyd is assaulting him.  Right, Jamie in a lighter moment.

GERRY!!! I will expect no other.

Tracy said...

NO Gerry!!! Hugh - oh Hugh my love - you will play Jamie and you will have a fabulous Scots accent!

scooper said...

Jerard Butler.

Shannon said...

Kevin McKidd!!! You can't tell me he isn't fabulous and manly on Grey's Anatomy. guh! And I need to hear him in a role with his own accent.

Tumperkin said...

Oh noes! I missed my chance to nominate THE non-actor candidate who has the Very Best Look for Jamie: Alain Baxter, Scottish skier.

Check out the links below!

But otherwise it's Kevin for me. He's not the most appealing of the list, but he's the closest to the description of Jamie. Damien Lewis is an appealing ginger but he's too old sadly...

Jonathan Rhys Meyers for Captain Randall cos he looks sooooo cruel. Or Daniel Day Lewis. Oooh or Hugh Jackman. He could do cruel.

Keeley Hawes as Claire.

Kevin's winning!

Carolyn Jean said...

KB: my vote goes to McKidd. He'd be an awesome Jamie!

Tracy: See above - Hugh has now been floated for Captain Randall! What do you think?

Scooper: Thanks!

Shannon: I'm for McKidd, too.

Tumper: Hugh Jackman would be GREAT as cappy Randall! I wish I could change the poll now. Thanks for Alain. I put up your photo - the non X rated one!

Renee said...

Tumperkin: Wow, great choices. I had thought of Damien Lewis, too (loved him in Shakespeare Re-told), but you're right, he's too old for Jamie in Outlander. Though for Dragonfly in Amber he would be a perfect age.

I still gotta root for my boy James Murray, tho'.

Jonathan Rhys Meyers for Captain Randall would be great-and creepy, but I think Billy Boyd would be an unexpected twist.

Nicola O. said...

OMG, look who I found:

naida said...

I voted...'oh Gerard, why are you so perfect'?

Carolyn Jean said...

Renee: Thanks! I have been really liking that Boyd for Randall.

Okay, Nicola, I don't even know who that is!! Is that the guy from LOST????

Naida: Kevin is no longer ahead. Drat!

Katiebabs a.k.a KB said...

Gerry is so nice in his kilt. And he would look good as a redhead.

Carolyn Jean said...

KB, did you just vote twice?????? Nooo! Kevin has to win!!!! Hey, I was just at your blog this VERY minute. Great post.

Katiebabs a.k.a KB said...

Me vote for Gerry twice? Why would I do that?

I saw your comment. :D The article really was interesting and makes you wonder. Why was I not in the top 100?

Nicola O. said...

CJ, I thought it was Dominick Monaghan too, but no. He's a singer in a band called "Kings of Leon."

Probably would've been helpful to include that info, eh?

Carolyn Jean said...

KB: Well, I voted for Kevin twice, and it's my own poll! Look, he's ahead!

Nicola: Well, he certainly would make a fine Jamie. I like his little necklaces. And you know, he does look like that Lost guy but hunkier.

Shannon said...

Heh. We can't cast "that Lost guy", no way. Bad idea to have Dom and Billy in a movie together again. The highjinks they were up to on the Lord of the Rings set are legendary.

Carolyn Jean said...

I imagine that infamous Captain Randall and Jamie scene at the end with those two playing the parts and my mind boggles.

lisabea said...

THERE CAN BE ONLY ONE.

RC.

or that James guy from Rome. Holy Crap on a Cracker that dude is HOT.

lisabea said...

Wait. James? What's his name? Kevin?

God. I'm having trouble downloading this page so...I can't really look.

help me...

Carolyn Jean said...

Are other people having trouble downloading all this?

Oh hai LB!!

Shannon said...

LB- If you like Kevin you def need to watch Grey's Anatomy. Hot war vet doctor. Num!

lisabea said...

OK the ROME guy. Tumperkin's ROME guy.

Phewie. He is TRES manly. Mmmm.

Carolyn Jean said...

Hold on, Kevin McKidd is from Rome AND Grey's Anatomy? I never watched Greys, but I've seen a bit f Rome. But long ago. Is he that sort of thuggy soldiar?

Shannon said...

Oh LB, isn't he, though? :: le sigh::

I want to be Christina Yang. That's all I'm sayin'.

Katiebabs a.k.a KB said...

I so can not see RC as Jamie.
GERRY ALL THE WAY!!

Carolyn Jean said...

Yeah, I wonder who voted for RC. But you know, KB, as owner of this blog, I will have to make an executive decision. Maybe RC with that long hair...

Did you like my new caption on Oz?

Katiebabs a.k.a KB said...

OMG CJ I started laughing so loud when I saw the caption under OZ that my cube mate popped up and wanted to know what was so funny.

Seth Green just seem too wimpy to play Jamie. Perhaps I need to go back and read Outlander to ponder more on the perfect man *coughgerrycough* to play Jamie.

RC looks more like bigfoot everyday.

Carolyn Jean said...

BIGFOOT! Noooo. But actually, that is very clever, because he does a little. But only bc bigfoot is the manliest of creatures!

Actually, that OZ is probably like 40 now. I mean, wasn't Buffy on like 10 years ago? Okay, maybe 30. Confession: I've never seen Gerard Butler in anything.

Carolyn Jean said...

Hey SHANNON:

I never thanked you for those fine visual aids!!!

I never saw that Kevin in action. Thanks!

Katiebabs a.k.a KB said...

RC is a verra manly hairy beast. Hopefully he won't become Cousin It from The Addams Family.

Gerry played the Phantom in Phantom of the Opera movie, Leader of the Spartans in 300. Lots of smexy naked chests and legs going on there. And in the sweet yet sad PS I Love You.

Tumperkin said...

Oh man, CJ, that is a terrible picture of Alain Baxter - that isn't what I gave you is it? Put a nice one on won't you? Like these:

Kevin for the win.

Carolyn Jean said...

Oh, I am just laughing, T. I'm sorry. The one you gave was naked and the other didn't come up, so I searched for my own. Is this better? He is a fine redhead indeed!

Shannon said...

oooh! Thise are much better pics. I didn't see the attraction before, now however...

CJ- Your welcome. COnsider it my contribution to the Kevin Cause. I love the clip from Grey's. God, the way he grabs her head and pulls her in for that kiss ::fans self:: Biys need to pay attention to that. Wait a sec, come to think of it, her first kiss with Burke was like that, too. Damn! I REALLY want to be Christina Yang.

Nicola O. said...

OY. I think I'm on the Kevin McKidd bus. Fantastic voice, too.

Yum.

Tumperkin said...

So much better. Despite the slight coneheadedness in pic1.

Katie Reus said...

Max Martini!! *sigh* I'm married to a sexy redhead so I have a special place in my heart for a redheaded man ;)
