Casting Call

Question of the day: If you were casting a romantic comedy, who's your leading hot boy? And when I say boy, I mean of the older variety, age 30-40. You know, ancient.

Well, he just sneaks in but I’ve got to choose my main man, Richard Armitage! Have you seen him in The Vicar of Dibley?!?

I really don’t have any clue. BUT it sounds like you may be writing a book..*grin* If so, go Jenny!! So excited to see what’s next. I truly loved Just Between You And Me and am planning to re-read it. Hey, how about Connor Blake?!
(Fiction but well, he’s good for inspiration,no?)

Alex O’Loughlan (Hawaii 5-0) or Ryan Reynolds (The Proposal) are my two top picks. Chris O’Donnell (NCIS:LA) is up there too.

Matthew Macfadyen. {Aka my favorite Mr. Darcy. And the awesome Arthur Clennam in Little Dorrit.} He’s really tall and handsome and English, and he has one of the best voices ever. =)

I agree with the Alex O’Loughlin comments for sure!

I’m not sure about ages, but…Jude Law, Hugh Jackman, or Robert Downey Jr. 🙂

Deborah - November 21, 2012

Either Grant Gustin or Josh Hutcherson. Adsgdhfjksgjsff. <3

Gerard Butler – he’s in his 40s – hope that’s acceptable age wise – it is for me!

Reply
CATBIRD - November 21, 2012

well, he’s older then 40, but I would pick Russell Crowe. Or Chris O’Donnell. =)

Chris P. - November 21, 2012

James McAvoy – not your typical “hot” guy but oh that accent and blue eyes. Oh and Jonathan Rhys Meyers!

Reply
Jada - November 21, 2012

Mirando, Josh hutcherson is around nineteen but I’d have to pick him too! 🙂

Reply
Jada - November 21, 2012

Oh, and that Rob dude who plays Edward Cullen–go vampires!

Ellie - November 21, 2012

Matthew Goode for SURE!

Reply
Heather - November 22, 2012

Either Hugh Jackman or Pierce Bronson! They’ve both got the loks and the British accents. Plus deep down a heart of gold.

Rachel - November 23, 2012

Josh Dallas from Once Upon A Time… he’s 30 so it counts…… he’s awesome…. and pretty good looking if you ask me….

Reply
Katelyn - November 24, 2012

I would have to say Chris Pine (Star Trek!!!!!!!), Chris Evans (Captain America) and definitely Alex O’Loughlin ( Hawaii Five-0). Those are my picks!!!!!!

Allie Smith - November 25, 2012

Hugh Jackman. Everybody teases me about the “old man” crush I have on him!

Reply
Amy - November 25, 2012

Matthew McConnaughy. Really, though, I just wanted to write that I love your books. I cannot wait for more. Hope you are well

Micki Smith - November 26, 2012

Kyle Chandler!

Tom Cruise. Most definitely. I mean, seriously, it doesn’t get hotter then him. Despite the fact he’s crazy in real life. It’s a shame really, we would have made an adorable couple.

Reply
Sarah - November 28, 2012

OK, well, actually, as hot as Tom Cruise is, I just have to say the Colin O’Donoghue (Hook from Once Upon a Time) is beautiful. I mean Gorgeous. Like Melt-when-you-see-him kind of gorgeous. But Tom Cruise is more manly, it’s hard to make the call.

Alana - November 29, 2012

Oh, I would have to say Hugh Dancy….great in Daniel Deronda! Also Hugh Jackman….I guess I like foreign guys named Hugh…also, I always liked Michael Vartan in Never Been Kissed. OH, I LOVE Korean dramas, so romantic and clean (don’t know if anyone else watches these)…from South Korea So Ji Sub and Yun Jung Hoon (now there’s a good-looking vampire)…and a bit younger Lee Min Ho!! I would have to definitely agree, Richard Armitage and Colin O’Donoghue!! I love your books!

Allie - December 2, 2012

Hands down, Richard Armitage…anybody catch the ending kiss in BBC’s production of Elizabeth Gaskell’s North and South? (you can watch it on youtube…thank me later) I think he won an award for that kiss, the whole 4 hours is worth it when you get to that ending kiss. Yowsers!

OK, and if I can put in a punt for the next young leading man please model him a bit after Greg Sczebel. Just love that cheeky, boyish/man thing! In his music video, I Will Come or See Through heart, especially! And he’s into fashion but totally manly…maybe a character like him…yes?

I am elderly but I stand by Colin Firth. Please watch Love Actually and swoon if you need any further evidence to his fantastic-ness.

I can’t actually read these words I’m writing as I am old, sightless and wrinkled. Who the heck is Richard Armitage?

Also, God bless John Cusack.

Dorothee - December 5, 2012

I love Korean Dramas too!!! Kim Hyun Joong but he’s just 25 so no…but definitely Alex O’Loughlin he seems pretty good looking.

Jeremy Renner (lovelovelovelove)

I would have to say Josh Duhamel(40). I love him, & he still looks young. 🙂

Reply
Janelle - December 10, 2012

Nicholas Cage, Ryan Reynolds, Patrick Dempsy, Ben Stiller, Josh Duhamel, Chris Pine, James McAvoy, Jim Carrey, and the list goes on and on….
I have a lot of movie crushes

David Tennant. I am so in love with this Scottish man.

Reply
Sarah - January 6, 2013

OK, I just have to say, people, Josh Hutcherson, Chris Evans, and Robert Pattinson are most definitely that old.Also, to that person who said Pierce Brosnan, I request the highest of fives.

Sarah - January 6, 2013

(Sorry for leaving so many comments) But I just saw the comment above me, David Tennant, *Fangirling*

Nichole - January 20, 2013

Is it too late to comment. I would vote Christopher Gorham as well. YAY, it sounds like a book is around the corner…I AM SO THRILLED!

Henry Cavill. Don’t know about the comedy aspect of it, but always Henry Cavill. He’s a *ahem* really good actor. Besides the guy’s a Greek legend (Immortals, anyone?) AND who would NOT swoon at the big guy in spandex (upcoming Man of Steel). Oh and he’s British.

Reply
Katharine - February 10, 2013

Their are quite a few, but here are 3: Collin Firth, Pierce Bronson, and Harrison Ford!
