Another casting announcement has come down from the producers of the Outlander mini-series. In the book, Claire's modern husband is Frank Randall, who is interested in his Scots ancestor "Black Jack Randall. When she time travels, Claire ends up meeting "Black Jack" who is not at all like Frank except in looks. He's the villain of the piece, as a matter of fact, and hates Jamie Frasier. It has been announced that these two parts will be played by the same actor, Tobias Menzies, most recently of "Game of Thrones".
Everyone is waiting to see who plays Claire, but I have a feeling it's going to be a little longer wait. I don't envy these folks having to cast this series. Every reader has some picture of how these characters look and even what actor or actress should play them. Diana Gabaldon's Facebook page is cluttered with comments both good and bad whenever someone is announced. More to come.
