Weekly Hotboy

I thought since there was a whole lot of talk about period dramas in my last post I would pay homage to them in my hotboy section.  What could be more delightful than salty goodness from the age of chivalry.

This isn't the original Mr. Darcy, but he's still my favourite, Colin Firth has a lot to answer for when it comes to my rediculous standards about men (hence my being single!)
Matthew McFadyen as Mr. Darcy, he was quite lovely, I loved him even more in Little Dorrit, even if he was totally clueless.  Here he is at the end of P&P, a little bit frazzled for all his wanting of Miss. Bennett.
Richard Armitage as Mr. Thornton from North & South.  I could seriously watch this over and over.  This is from the "Look back at me." scene - pretty much guaranteed to make you squee!
Elliot Cowan, another Mr. Darcy, from Lost in Austen.  I enjoyed this version of P&P a lot, I don't know how it went down with the purists, probably as good as the zombies did.  But this scene is hilarous and oh so sexy at the same.  I love the little smirk and half smiles from this scene.  Makes me think he's got something naughty to hide.
Tom Hardy, as Heathcliff from Wuthering Heights.  He was fantastic in this and even though I would've been whacking you upside the head constantly, (because lets be honest, sometimes he is a truly maddening character), I would've waited for you.

I could keep going, but I'm going to pretend I'm a lady with modest appetites :)
I got told off for not having Rupert Penry-Jones and I'm not one to disappoint!  Here he is looking all gallant as Capt. Wentworth.  Don't you just want to scruff him up?



  1. LOVE IT! My fav. P&P movie was the Kiera Knightly one.....then I saw the TV miniseries with Colin Firth- now I can't even watch the Kiera Knightly one can compete with Colin Firth walking out of a pond soaking wet! Also, just.....tooooo.....amazing! lol....I've seen the whole series like 3 times!

  2. What I loved about the Keira Knightly version, was that they were quite young, it was a nice take on the original. But I have to agree about the Colin Firth adaption. I love him and Jennifer Ehle together.
