Someone left a comment suggesting German violin virtuoso David Garrett as Jamie Fraser and left a link to his picture. I looked up the link and had to agree. In fact, I agreed so much I made a collage.
Since he’s a musician and not an actor, I’m not suggesting he should play Jamie Fraser in the movie, but damn if he doesn’t resemble Jamie Fraser in my mind!
Since I have a long list of Jamie Fraser casting suggestions, it’s going to take me some time to plow through them and pull up actor photos. I’m also very picky about which pictures I post up, so I end up spending a considerable amount of time shifting through the Internet until I find the perfect picture. Don’t feel bad if your suggestion is not up here.
It’s a tough job looking at sexy Jamie Fraser pictures and blogging about it, but (rolls up sleeves) someone’s gotta do it.
That said, another man with Jamie Fraser potential is Rupert Penry-Jones. Austen fans may remember him as Captain Wentworth in Persuasion (2007). While I think Rupert is gorgeous, he’s not “striking Viking” enough for Jamie. However, he could work as Lord John.
Somebody else also suggested Simon Wood (pictured here as the amicable Mr. Bingley).
