RANDOM JACK RANDALL SHOT!

I canna help it. Jason Isaacs was on Harry Potter the other night and I started making a very high-pitched, involuntary noise... which the rest of my family thankfully ignored. Bottom line: He. Scares. The. Bejesus. Out. Of. Me.  And yet.... I think he's verra tasty.

He is my first option to be Jack Randall. He totally fits the character!!!

Lately, my BJR has been Robert Downey Jr. Not sure why, he just is.

Is Jason Isaacs a baddie in HP too? He is, of course, the ULTIMATE baddie in The Patriot. (Well, except for Mel Gibson these days...)

He freaks me out too!! Woah! I can totally see him playing Randall, that's weird... Awesome!!

In almost all the Outlander casting videos on You Tube, he's the BJR of choice. I totally see him, when I imagine Black Jack.
But...Tracey...I could see Robert Downey Jr. too.

Tracey R. said...

Am I imagining things, or did I read somewhere that DG thought he was a bit too "obvious" for BJR? Poor guy--he's so deliciously evil in The Patriot that he's typecast for life!!

Diane K said...

Yes, he is quite quite wicked in HP!! (and looks totally hot with pure white hair!) I think he'd be a perfect BJR.

Megs said...

Totally love to hate him! He would be AMAZING! I think he even looks like BJR from the GN too.

Carol- I am so excited that you're getting into Harry Potter.

Unknown said...

He's my BJR, too. Loved him in Harry Potter. Saw him in an interview from some UK show and he was a hoot, even a bit adorable.

I totally agree he makes a great Jack Randall

Purgatory Carol said...

I love him. I just love him! And I agree with Diana - he's ridiculously obvious for this part. But it's so obvious it is almost canceling itself out and would just be impossible NOT to cast him! Seriously! He IS Jack Randall!

Mali said...

totally agree. he has been my bjr from the very beginning. he's perfect!!!!!

Louise said...

I think he is a little bit too perfect for the role. He would in effect be playing the same character as he did in "The Patriot"

I alway pictured BJR (or "Captain Jack" as my husband insists on calling him) as having slightly floppy hair. I can easily picture Richard Armitage in the role.

Purgatory Carol said...

You know Louise... you're right. He would be playing the same character. But here's how I see it. It's gone past where I can say "he's too obvious". It's almost like... I literally willna be able to handle anyone else in the role. LOL!! Seriously though - this Richard Armitage looks good. I don't know that I've seen him in anything. Checked his IMDB - I think I saw "This Year's Love" but that was years back... and he only played the "smug man at the party". He has definitely come up in the acting world since then! I'll check him out on youtube!

Try this youtube Carol.

His facial expressions on the clips from Robin Hood are sooooo evil!

May I just say that Davina's BJR is DELICIOUS. Yesindeedydoo.

Stacey said...

Wow. I try not to imagine actors as the characters I picture in my head, but this picture, with the beginnings of a sneer on those handsome lips...! Oy! I can totally picture him as Black Jack/Frank/Alex Randall (because of course they have to have the same actor playing the roles...) as sadistic BJR, urbane FR, and humble AR.

I guess the reason I try not to picture actors is that I haven't seen one that says "this is Jamie", and of course one imagines oneself as Clare...the hazard of first person!

Mali said...

i have to say.... the youtube video was amazing. jason isaacs is still number one, but i would not be angry with richard....... :-)

Patti said...

Yes, I'm afraid I too can picture noone else to play BJR. And I love the idea of the same actor playing all three roles. I'm sure Isaacson could pull that off. He's a great actor-that's why we love to hate him so (or rather the characters he plays)!

Stacey said...

Tracey, I agree with you that Davina Porter's characterization(s!) are right on - love her singing in Jamie's voice "...stung me weeel above the kneeee" - but I can *hear* Jason Isaacs now as BJR as well as picture him....*shivers*

Karla said...

When I see Jack Randall I see him. Just didn;t know it until now.

Purgatory Carol said...

Karla for the win!! That is the best avatar. Loves it!
