Hot Male

Musing Mondays2

This week’s musing is a book meme: Who do you think is the hottest male/female character from a book?

What a fun question, although I usually don’t visualize characters and assign celebrities to them. That said, one character stands out, sparking a fantasy that I cannot extinguish. The journalist Mikael Blomkvist intrigues me from the beginning of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (Millennium trilogy) and whom I always have seen as Daniel Craig. The underdog journalist who sought to reveal the scam undertaken by a financier has always appealed to me with his geekiness and ruggedness. When the series begins his career is torn to shreds. He has resigned from his position as a publisher of the magazine Millennium more or less in disgrace. His only hope is the fulfillment of a strange assignment from an industrialist, Henrik Vanger, who hires him to write the history of the Vanger family as a pretext to investigate the disappearance of his then 14-year-old grand-niece, Harriet Vanger. The investigation leads to danger in a cat-and-mouse chase that reminds me of James Bond and therefore I can totally see Daniel Craig being Blomkvist. Craig is hotter than a cookie!

  1. Ha! Yeah, I can totally see Daniel Craig, too. And I have to agree- he’s one nice looking man!

  2. See, I always thought Daniel Craig was too good looking to play Blomkvist, although from the poster it looks like they roughen him up a bit! I loved the Swedish one because Blomkvist was cute but not knock-out, like Craig.

  3. He is quite hot, as well as the Norwegian one as well. Which vexes me. I wouldn’t consider him to be the stereotypical stud muffin, but he has a way about him. I have a special place in my heart for Jack Reacher, defender of old women and children, and the man who travels the country without toothbrush or a change of clothes. All 6 ft. 6 inches, 250 pounds of him. Yeah baby.

  4. Thank you! I totally love Daniel Craig, and he will forever be my Bond. If you haven’t seen Casino Royale, I highly recommend it (and the book).

  5. Have you watched the foreign versions of these films?? They are pretty awesome…I love me some Daniel Craig!! 😀

  6. I can share that crush on Daniel Craig with you!

  7. He is pretty damn hot.
