We cast Outlander with our supes
posted by Snowwhitedrifted (SWD)/ West Coast Stacey
In the “Outlander” universe, it seems almost a rite of passage to “cast” the series with actors. Well, I thought I’d cast it with our favorite Vampires, werewolves, shifters and other supernatural beings. Perfectly normal, right? Now, East Coast Stacey (EC) is around chapter 6 I think (EC: Ha Ha! I am now on Chapter 11, They’ve hit the road!) in Outlander. I just started Drums of Autumn, so I have gotten to know these characters a little bit. You’ll meet them soon, EC.
Roger: Rob Pattz. Yes, Rob, not Edward. Rob likes to read and he’s tall. We’ll wipe whiskey off of those cords anytime!EC: HELLO, Professor Cullen. I want to take that class! Wait…wasn’t Roger a little boy? Does another Roger pop up later? Honestly, if there is a movie then he should just randomly appear and narrate. It would be a WONDERFUL addition. Ohh…and he should have patches on the elbows of his tweed jacket and cute, little glasses… what were we talking about?
Brianna: Jessica Hamby-Compton from True Blood: Firstly, she’s the look and the sass. Plus I think the knowledge of her perpetual state of virginity would be a large plus to her papaEC: I haven’t got to this character yet, but I love the character of Jessica! Does Brianna stomp her feet, pout and eat people? If so, this is the actress for the role..
Colum Mackenzie: Terry Belefleur from True Blood. Handsome in face yet too with a (mental) crippling.EC: So far I think Colum is an interesting character with his cage of birds. Everytime I see this actor (even on True Blood) I think of Gilmore Girls and how he knocked up Lane and played in a band. * sigh * I miss Rory and Lorelei.
Gellis Duncan: aka Jelly Donut (“Dunkin” after all). Rosalie from Twilgiht. Pretty, check. Suspicious, check. Bitch, (well it rhymes with…) check.EC: Wait…she’s not a good character? I haven’t got that far yet. The picture is creeping me out. I feel like I should be watching an episode of Ghost Hunters and THIS is what is haunting the spooky castle.
Dougal Mackenzie: Aragorn from the Lord of the Rings saga. He deals with magic rings so that makes him supe-y. ..as for Dougal’s character….yeah yeah yeah, I know I know, but…Viggo.EC: I see this… he does gritty warrior to perfection! I want Elijah Wood to follow him around and carry his musket, wearing the hobbit feet. Oh…I think I just want to watch Lord of the Rings again, IT’S always on TV. I should check TV Guide
Laoghaire: Caroline from Vampire Diaries. Only because she’s blond and I found that picture. Now I spretty much know how to say her name, but I just refer to her as Leg Hair. I’m sure I’m not alone.EC: Are you sure…because Caroline is FIERCE! I can’t see her playing a wimpy girly girl anymore! That picture below explains it all! How about Sarah Michelle Gellar? Wait, Buffy’s fierce too
Murtagh: Newly changed into a vampire Bella Swan Cullen. She’s tiny, she’s fierce, she’s blood thirsty but controlled.EC: Nevermind, about saying I was scared by the ghost Nikki Reed above. THIS SCARES ME and newborn Bella better not look like that, because I WILL have nightmares. * shivers * Plus,she is not an acceptable companion to Professor Cullen. (Yeah, I haven’t read the part about Murtagh. Getting there.)
Jenny Murray: Alice Cullen. Sassy, has “the Sight”, little brunette with a hot brother.EC: I like Jenny Murray already, I really liked her strength when dealing with that rogue Randall to protect her brother. I also like everything Alice.
Ian Murray: Sam Merlotte (True Blood) True, getting him out of those shirts and into period dress would be a crime though.EC: Why can’t he keep the shirts? Many of them ARE plaid, just like the kilts. Step away from the shirts…
Sandringham: Talbot from True Blood, because they both like pretty things like silk drapes and men of Norse ancestry.EC: Does he get put in a jar too? Why is head floating like that? Is it easier to put in the jar that way? (Observe picture below)
Mr. Willoughby: pro boxer Manny pacquiao. Human, sure, but he has supernatural strength, so he qualifies. EC: Who’s that? I don’t watch boxing ‘too violent’. * giggle * (says girl who watches Vampire Diaries and True Blood)
Young Ian : Tommy Mickens (True Blood) mixed with a little Jack Skellington. Oh Ian, if only you could have shifted and doggie paddled.EC: Is he the same peg leg Ian, as above? I’m confused. Must keep reading…
Lord John Grey: Jasper Hale Cullen (Twilight). He’s blond and pretty with a soldier’s background. Ummmhmmmm.EC: Aww…Jasper. This is a nice shot of him. Not a creepy wig shot, like in New Moon. I think I like this Lord John Grey. Do I? Because, you had me at blond and pretty
Marsali: Volturi JaneEC: Another creepy little girl? What is it with creepy little girls? Shouldn’t they be sugar and spice and everything nice?
Fergus: I have some options for Fergus here too. One being Damon Salvatore (Vampire Diaries). Beautiful, dangerous, smexy!EC: YES! YES! YES! YES! YES! .
Or Prince Caspian from the Narnia series. I can classify him as a supe since he deals with talking lions and hello… more time/ space vortex’s. No manip here, he’s just pretty and looks French.EC: Yes, I do see he’s a pretty, but observe MY casting choice above. You can never cast someone other than Somerhalder. It’s against nature.
Black Jack Randall: Now I have a few options for ‘ol Randy. Initially, I thought his physical description would be best suited as This, however ECStacey would absolutely kill me, especially when she reads…. nevermind. So, how about Bill Compton (True Blood) or Mitchell (Being Human)? We have seen both of your dark sides this past season. EC: You better check yourself, missy. I absolutely clicked on that link and SCREAMED in horror. I know he plays a ‘bad’ boy on VampDi, but no way. Plus, then he would have to be FRANK too! When reading about Frank I see George from Being Human or Xander from Buffy. Just sayin. However, Bill or Mitchell would be acceptable. However, Mitchell is going to be busy in New Zealand for a while filming The Hobbit as a dwarf (?!?) Those shoots take forever! Which better not mess up the shooting schedule for Being Human. They need to get Annie back!!!
Russell Eddington (True Blood). He’s bat sh*t violent and he already has the coat and horse skills! Thanks Ball, for that one.EC: He might be a little…umm…too old for the role… (of course, Moyer is no spring chicken either)
Claire: Now, I don’t really have a strong SupeClaire in mind because I think of her as my friend Darcy or a Diane_Lane type. So with our characters, let’s start with ghost Annie from Being Human. English, check. Pretty, check. Curly haired, check…. Is always getting sucked into passageways into another dimension, checkity check!EC: Perfect, because I heart Annie. She is my favorite. Plus, the actress can play tough and sweet. She does have to bring along my favorite sweater though. I really want one of those!
Or Rose from Vampire Diaries. She’s British, pretty, strong, tall and duinne. She seems likeably so far.EC: Nope. Alice 2.0 is well, not Claire. We do know from the Vampire Diaries she can handle the flashback costumes, but still not Claire.
Or even Esme as modern day Frank era Claire
EC: I would keep imaging her making italiano and reprimanding Emmett for being crude.
Now for the Jamies, ahhh the Jamies. Tall, deep voiced and alpha, just my type! *winks at Mr. Snow* I actually see Jamie kind of like Aaron_Eckheart, but his only supe role was Two Face in Batman and that wasn’t going to work here. Sooo, lets supe up our JAMMF the hot BAMF.
First up: Vampire Diaries Matt as young Jamie. Jaw, shoulders, fair skin. Whatcha think? EC: Really? Nope.
or perhaps Dean from Supernatural. Although the height is off, can you imagine “Sassenach” being rolled off his tongue with that highland accented baritone? Och, aye! EC: Oh…I like. But, I’ve liked since he played Eric Brady on Days of Our Lives.
C’mon, freakishly tall, giant shoulders…of Viking decent.
…wait a minute, I just thought of an idea for Claire… How about:…. *smiles*
EC: You’re silly!
Screw it. I say we turn the whole thing into a comedy and put it on basic cable. Whatcha think?
Betty “Laoghaire” White, Adam “Dougal” Carolla, Steve “Randall” Carell, Tina “Claire in her shift” Fey, Conan O’Jaime, Jack Black “Murtagh”, Carrot Top’s SandringhamEC: That would be just about perfect! With the cast of Modern Family…
