Thanks to Cheryl for pointing me to this trailer for the new Pride and Prejudice:

Is it September 16th yet?

With apologies to most of my friendslist, I've never been a Colin Firth fan, or at least I've never understood what was supposed to be so attractive about him, as Darcy or otherwise. Matthew MacFadyen, on the other hand? I've never seen the guy in anything before (or if I have, I didn't notice him enough to recall the name), but after this trailer, I am sold. Besides, Donald Sutherland as Mr. Bennet! And Judi Dench as Lady Catherine!

I think Mr. Collins is a bit too good-looking, though.

ETA: Oh, so MacFadyen is from Spooks/MI-5, is he? He looks a lot more baby-faced with short hair. But I've heard good things about the show so I'm going to assume he can act.

Oh, good...

After seeing this several times on my Friendslist, I was beginning to wonder if Flannery O'Connor was the only possible result on this quiz. But apparently not:

And I am not displeased )
I just went and looked at [livejournal.com profile] lizbee's page and discovered that she'd included TV, movie and comics characters, too. Well, then:
- The Fifth Doctor
- Mirth, and Sean Knight (but especially Mirth), from Matt Wagner's Mage: The Hero Discovered
- Jamie, from Truly, Madly, Deeply
And back on the literary side, I know who I forgot:
- Mr. Knightley, from Jane Austen's Emma
Duh, how could I have forgotten him?
...for one dreadful moment I felt sure I was going to end up as Mary.

Which of the Pride & Prejudice Sisters are You?

Darcy, schmarcy. Can I hop books and marry Mr. Knightley instead?
