I can't see him as anyone other than Nathan in Queer as Folk.
I still have no idea how they possibly plan to put this on the big screen without losing 95% of the books.
Have you watched him in SOA? He's so different than Nathan, of course he was so young during Queer as Folk. He did very explicit sex scenes then so obviously he's not shy about it. I watched him in SOA before I watched QAS so to me he is Jax, but he was also so different in 3,2,1 Frankie so he has a good range.
I'm sure they'll have to cut a bunch if the book out but it will be NC-17 so that helps. I'm thinking something along the lines of 9 1/2 Weeks.
I love Charlie. Kind of disappointed in the casting though. I pictured someone "darker" like Henry Cavill or Ian Somerhalder. Unlike most critics of this casting choice, I actually think Dakota is a good choice for the role of Ana.
