Ladies and Gentlemen...I Have Found My Stephen Bonnet

So I'm watching The Vampire Diaries tonight...and all the sudden it hits me:   Trask - Radio.  Klaus - Bonnet.

How is it that I've never noticed this before?  Or have I? Have we ever discussed this and I am forgetting?  Have the Staceys brought this up and I've filed it away somewhere?  I just can't believe this just popped into my head tonight.  Joseph Morgan.  Welsh.  Hot.  Blonde.  Need I say more?  (And c'mon...ye know damn well he can do an Irish accent.  Hell,  _I_ can do an Irish accent!  OK so maybe I'm Irish-American...but still.  Unless it's Northern Irish, it's a lot easier than Scottish, right?!)

And don't let the sweetness factor deter you from truly grasping my vision.  He plays a totally sinister guy - aka vampire - on The Vampire Diaries.  Boyfriend's up to the task.

Awesome Working Girl reference... LOVE it!

I always pictured Stephen Bonnet as a dirty old-ish man. Maybe I missed a description somewhere (which is likely because I read these fast and not closely...).

Wasn't Bonnet fairly young, maybe in his 30's? And I think somewhere it described him as blonde, green eyed and heavy features. I picture him as fairly good looking but kinda brutish. Wouldn't he have to be "rough" looking to intimidate his shipmen the way he did?

Hi Carol,
The vid is blocked in my country it tells me so I'll have to go do a bit of googling but from the picture he does look promising.
I must get round to watching Vampire Diaries

perfect Bonnet. If anyone has read the Lymond Chronicles - this guy is also a perfect Francis Crawford!

Brandy said...

He's too feminine and scrawny looking for me. At least on Vampire Diaries. I'm not into the whole "emo" look how guys are so stinking skinny now (I think it's the lack of body hair on some of these guys that throws me off. Hair = man to me, not that they have to be a hairy ape but no body hair is just girly to me). I've always pictured Bonnett as more of dirty sort of manly man. lol...I always thought Sean Bean has that kind of look.

How tall is he? IMO, he has to have the height--only a wee bit shorter than JAMMF/RogerMac.

This guy ain't bad tho....

Bonnet is supposed to be hot and slimy. This guy does hot and slimy well, yet can maintain an endearing side that makes you hate to love him - and vice versa. He's also 30 and seems to go up and down in weight and muscle, depending on the role. LOVE.

I think he would be perfect.

Carol - what a brilliant observation! I love Klaus in the VD's, the perfection combination of hotness and badboy. He could totally pull off Bonnet, who by the way is one of my favourite characters in the Outlander series.
I hope they keep this bad boy on VD for awhile yet, YUM!

I'm sold. The ass shot makes it a no brainer.

tinababy1 said...

Yes Yes Yes! He is good looking, cocky and there is something that makes me want to scratch his eyes out, lol. perfection! Well done Carol!

LeslieUnfinished said...

He's got that bit of charm, yet something that makes me not want to like him. Perfect!

Juliazun said...

Great choice!!

Purgatory Carol said...

LOL Lassies - loving all your comments...and B.Helms made me tinkle.

Cari said...

"Trask - Radio. Klaus - Bonnet." I always love a Working Girl reference!

I think that you're definitely on to something here. I'll never look at Klaus the same way again...

Good one!!! I can totally see it! Klaus is kind of slight in Vamp Di, but menacing nonetheless. This totally works!

Stefan / Paul is my Beardsley twins :)

"Stefan / Paul is my Beardsley twins :)"

Verra interesting!

Purgatory Carol said...

Holy mother of god on high. If Stefan/Paul are the Beardsley twins than I am on the first flight to LA to audition for (a slightly older) Lizzie!!!!!!!!!!

Lizzie all fevered, lubed up, and Beardley'ed is one of my fav parts of ABoSaA.

I love Stefan/Paul this season! Even though I give him a hard time about his low cut t-shirts, he's my fav Salvatore.

SC said...

I think he is perfect. they would have to dirty him up a lot though.

Stacey said...

He also played in the TV series Hex - 1st season anyhow and he was quite fetching then - of course we didn't get to see the but - oh wait yes we did :) watch it...not sure he could be as big a butthead as Bonnet but that is why they are called ACTORS isn't it:)

Dandelion said...

Trask - Radio! That was awesome. And yes... he is perfect for Bonnet.

dreag21 said...

Um he would AWESOME as Bonnet! Totally dark and dirty but still hauntingly attractive... like he makes you all tingly for him even though you don't want to!

:D

Hello everyone, btw...

Tlcasselman said...

Hmm...I've always saw Stephen Bonnet as nikolaj coster-waldau who also plays Jaime Lannister on Game Of Thrones..*shrugs*

Unknown said...

The man who plays the pirate Vain on Dark Sails would be a good Steven Bonnet.

Purgatory Carol said...

OMG Unknown...OMG. Zach McGowan. He's FANTASTIC. I would NOT shun that idea!!! Good call!!
