Yes!! Jamie is my all time favorite hero! Diana seems over the moon with the casting choice, according to her Facebook posts and he seems really thrilled to play the part. They have also cast Frank/BJR with Tobias Menzies.

Here is a picture of Sam Heughen with some photoshopped Jamie hair, lol

I like him as Jaime so I'm thrilled as well. I follow her on FB and Twitter. I want to make sure I miss nothing & can't wait for the next book.

I've sort of calmed down about the books, though I still read them, some I enjoy more than others. Outlander has a special place in my heart, that book changed my life as far as reading goes. The last one I thought was very slow but it ended on a helluva cliffhanger!

Really? I think he nails it but we all have different ideas in our heads. Who do you see as Jamie, if you could pick someone?

SO EXCITED! I hope it's well done.

This guy seems like a really good choice for Jamie. Apparently he is 6'3" and Scottish (so no dreadful fake accent). He doesn't seem as muscular as I imagined Jamie to be though, but I am sure it will be fine.

I've always envisioned Chris Hemsworth as Jamie.

He seems smaller than I have pictured Jamie - more delicately boned. I am thrilled he is actually Scottish though so willing to give him a chance. The guy they cast for Frank/Black Jack seems okay. I am absolutely going to die if they mess this up. Outlander is my all time favorite book and I have read it a million times over.

Oh wow, I had no idea this was happening. I love the Outlander books!

Searching for more info, I take it that the casting of Claire has not been announced yet? Ron D Moore (Battlestar Galactica reboot) is in charge, so I have high hopes that the series will be done well.

No Claire yet! But soon I am sure.

I am so excited for this! Outland is one of my absolute favorite books! I think they did well with the casting of Jamie. I just can't wait to see who is cast as Claire.

This. This is why he's not Jamie to me, but I hope it's good

Maybe they picked him for his high cheekbones and slanted eyes?? They're more squinty than slanted I guess but they're still pretty eyes.

To be fair, no one as perfect as Jamie exists in real life
