I’m filling in for Megan today so I’m afraid the cool factor will be missing from your Friday post. My apologies in advance.

Some of you may know that I am on Team Eric. But Megan is Team Bill. This picture is a good enough illustration of why that might be. Notice, please, that Bill, er, Stephen, is wearing the official New York uniform of black.

Here’s another example of Megan-esque cool. Let’s just call it the M-Factor:

As an example of how Megan is cool and I am not, when I Googled for photos of Clive Owens, I typed in Clive Butler because I was confusing Clive with Gerard. Not a mistake Megan would ever have made. Because I don’t want you to make the same mistake, here’s this:

I think all three of these M-Factor men could play a Regency hero.

Stephen Moyer as Mr. Darcy?

Clive Owen as Captain Wentworth?

Gerard Butler as Rochester? (OK, so that’s not Regency. It’s because I’m not cool.)

How, where and when would you cast these men in a Regency Story? Feel free to chose a book.

Moyer as Aiden Bedwyn From Balogh’s Simply series? Or is he more Wulf? Maybe he’s Wulf.

I think Butler or Owens could play the lead of Chase’s Lord of Scoudrels.

Go on. Speculate wildly. Call on your inner Megan and cast these men in a Regency Romance.
