Plastic Joy Award

I've been waiting ages to do this meme, so many thanks to Beth at My Good Life for tagging me with the Plastic Joy Award. I now get to share with you who 'I would do' from the film/TV world. To say I'm spoilt for choice is an understatment, so here's hoping I can narrow it down to just five!

John Barrowman as Torchwood's Captain Jack - and before anyone says 'But Sam, you do know he is *gay* don't you?' - yes of course I know, but this is fantasy land and, anyway, as Captain Jack he swings both ways. Besides, I'm a sucker for a man in a 1st World War uniform, particularly one that isn't scared of aliens and whose day job is saving the world.

Taylor Lautner as Jacob Black in New Moon - I know it's wrong on so many levels - i.e. he's a werewolf and he looks about 12 - but I'm afraid the rippling muscles, the golden tan and the puppy dog eyes completely won me over in the books before I even saw the film. Go Team Jacob!

Johnny Depp - I know, it's a no brainer, Johnny is God. However he often looks a bit strange in his film roles (take Edward Scissorhands, Willy Wonka, Sweeney Todd & Mad Hatter as just a few examples). And whilst I am definitely not immune to the charms of Captain Jack Sparrow, I am specifically requesting Johnny in his role as Roux in Chocolat for my guilt-free night of passion. Pretty please!

Aiden Turner as Mitchell in Being Human - so, not only have I picked a werewolf, I've also chosen a vampire. That's not normal is it?! But at least Mitchell is mainly 'on the wagon' and trying to resist his vampirish urges. Plus he is dark, smouldering and looks great in leather.

Matthew MacFadyen as Mr Darcy - I realise I am in the minority but I really liked Matthew's portrayal of Darcy in the latest version of Pride & Prejudice. Most particularly the scene on the moor when he declares his love for Elizabeth, makes me tingle every time I see it:

"You must know... surely, you must know it was all for you... you have bewitched me, body and soul, and I love, I love, I love you. I never wish to be parted from you from this day on." *swoons*

So looking back over my 5 they are all tall, dark, handsome and have a brooding or secretive side to their character. Looks like I have a definite 'type' doesn't it?!

And finally, I need to mention the delectable Matthew Morrison aka Mr Schuster from Glee. There is something irresistable about an inspiring teacher and Mr Schu is up there with the best. Most of the time he is just lovely and sweet, but when he's rapping to Golddigger with his pecs peeking out of his T-shirt, he is definitely eye-candy. But at the end of the day I think he is perhaps a little too wholesome to actually corrupt so I will keep him as my schoolgirl crush!

So, who would you do? I'm passing this on to the following ladies to find out:

Sam at Mumazing
Jay at Mocha Beanie Mummy
Susie at Wise Genius
Wendy at Whimsical Wife
Chloe at I am Radford

Concerning Matthew Macfadyen....
You may feel you are in the minority but there are many of us ardent Matthew admirers out there. I have been a huge fan for almost 4 years now. He's my absolute favorite and that's saying a lot since I have been an avid movie watcher for more than 50 years. I actually got to meet him in NYC and he was very approachable and accommodating... made me appreciate him even more.
