pride and prejudice cast


im starting a campaign to raise awareness for the fact that fizwilliam darcy is, in fact, hot. the past three adaptations of pride and prejudice didnt cast a hot dude as mr darcy and its a tragedy. in the book darcy is described as hotter than bingley but bingely is friendlier. stop forgetting that mr darcy is HOT!!!!!!!!!!!! 


Now I really want a poc version of Pride and Prejudice. I saw @lasocialista dream cast edit of p&p and got so inspired that I had to draw this

Check it out here

people who prefer the 2005 pride and prejudice: the bbc version is good too! it’s a little harder to pay attention to, but i still liked it!

people who prefer the 1995 pride and prejudice: the cast of the 2005 p&p came to my house and MURDERED MY DOG. if you like the 2005 p&p you are SUPPORTING DOG MURDER

Racebent Pride and Prejudice

Okay @honnleathlion I started thinking about my “all y’all don’t gotta be white” Pride and Prejudice cast here’s what I came up with! Please excuse the shitty format of the post I have no idea how to make gifsets or this would have been pretty for you <3

Check out the rest under the cut, this post is long as hell!

Keep reading

casted shadows

standing in line of pride
for a share of prejudice
in broad daylight

the casted shadows betray their intentions
but there is not a wink of shame in them

the sun takes too long to set
and heavens forbid if there are clouds

the absence of their casted shadows
leaves them vulnerable

they thrive in colonies
for they draw from each other
poison to drown their prey

“crucify him”
“crucify her”
they chant

it is the mantra of casted shadows
casted shadows of pretense



This fun video,  Pride & Prejudice: Veronica Mars Style, by Sariebearie08 Productions brilliantly takes the trailer for the 2005 Pride & Prejudice and lays Veronica Mars clips over it. 

…perfect casting for Mr. Collins, this librarian must say! 

Pride & Prejudice & Zombies

This is one of those period films I’ve seen lately but haven’t had time to write about. Before starting with my usual way of writing and adding gifs without control, let me tell you a couple things:

  • I totally LOVE the 2005 Pride & Prejudice film, it’s one of my very favourite films in every way (the cast, the music, the costume design, the art…).

  • I also love bad films. Like really bad films. The kind of films that you see the poster and you already know that they will be bad (think about something like “I, Frankenstein” or “Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters” or “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter”) and they are fun because these are not pretentious films, they just deliver what you expect and if you go see them with a good mood, then you might even be surprised. Or not. That’s the charm of bad films.

Now, Pride & Prejudice & Zombies is not such a bad film. I don’t know why, but it perfectly works together. It was rather amazing. Let me tell you about it.

First, you MUST suspend disbelief. The film starts and tells you that before the story starts, there was a zombie uprising/epidemy and that now people have learnt to live with this. And in that world is where our story happens.

Before anything, we meet Mr Darcy (insert sight here), who is the hot-but-weird Sam Riley. I have to say that I had never thought anything about his voice until I saw this movie, but it’s quite… nasal, I guess? I don’t know, weird voice.

He also wears all black. And has a katana. Because of course.

I have to say that in my heart, Keira Knightley will always be THE Elizabeth Bennet.

And also I’m not that fond of Lily James, even though I love her in Downton Abbey. I don’t know why, but she doesn’t seem to me like the right Lizzie. But whatever.

Bella Heathcote is perfect as Jane Bennet. Actually I think she’s perfect in all period films ever XD

Mr Bingley (Douglas Booth) is SO gorgeous, just like taken from a Burberry ad and taken back to the Regency era (I don’t know if that makes any sense).

Originally posted by liammix

And talking about Mr Bingley, I liked the way that the relationship between Darcy and Bingley is portrayed: they trust their lives to each other. That kind of friendship seems tough and great.

Originally posted by douglasbdaily

And Collins. OH MY FUCKIN GOD, COLLINS! Matt Smith is HILARIOUS. Totally loved him as the odd, silly and awkward Collins. Perfect humour with perfect timing.

Originally posted by periodpoppycock

I love that Wickham (Jack Huston)  is a little more important to the story and really makes you think if he’s actually wrong or not (I didn’t find a gif :( )

Now, let’s check the important part: the relationship between Darcy and Elizabeth.

Well it follows (obviously) the usual Pride & Prejudice line, but we have these fun/awesome moments of them together:

When they meet at the ball (because zombies or not zombies, there must be a ball)

Now, the costume design: there are some very good things like most of the menswear

Originally posted by periodpoppycock

but there’s also the WHOLE underwear for the ladies. Tights. Bloomers. Really? REALLY?!

Originally posted by midevilin

even though most of the dresses and coats look rather  good.

Final thoughts: Are you looking for a faithful version of the Austen novel? Then don’t see this movie. Are you just wanna have fun and you love Matt Smith and/or zombies? Go see it now.

Also, I have to say that it’s pretty amazing the way that the original story and conflicts work in any setting and era: from a modern romcom to this zombie version. Jane Austen’s writing is just so… universal? Perfect? I don’t know but I have to say that even with all the fun/weird/crazy stuff going on in this film, the way that the core of the novel is untouched is just wonderful. I guess it’s just what happens with great literature.

And I LOVE what they did with the female characters: there’s not a single one who is not badass and strong. From each Bennet sister to Lady Catherine de Bourgh (ok, maybe Mrs Bennet is kind of boring, but that’s her point in the story).

Main Info:

Name: Pride & Prejudice & Zombies

Year: 2015

Main Cast: Lily James, Sam Riley, Bella Heathcote, Suki Waterhouse, Douglas Booth, Charles Dance, Jack Huston, Matt Smith, Lena Headey.

I am on a quest! For the PERFECT Pride and Prejudice cast! I’ll be reviewing the characters from one of my favourite books, Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen, and selecting the actor who played the character the best! 

Colin Firth 

You know him as Darcy, in fact everyone does. In the mid to late 1990s, every woman was head over heels in love with Firth as Darcy in one form or another. The 1995 adaption of Pride and Prejudice started a nationwide trend for period dramas and excessive side burns. It even inspired a cult classic in it’s own right, “Bridget Jones’s Diary”, and in the film adaption, Mark Darcy was played by none other that Firth himself.

Lets analyse Firth’s Darcy to see what makes him so iconic,


  • Wet shirt
  • Very funny and vulnerable when he wants to be 
  • So angry


  • Has a bit of a dad vibe
  • Tainted forever by Mamma Mia 
  • So angry

Matthew Macfadyen

He played Darcy in the beautifully shot 2005 adaption with Keira Knightley, and then went on to star in the BBC drama “Spooks”, but other than that, he hasn’t hit Hollywood hard since. His Darcy was vulnerable and was so obviously in love with Elizabeth that it makes me melt every time I watch it. I have lots of love for Macfadyen, reasons being this scene

which is beautifully filmed and the chemistry is amazing. Oh and this moment


  • That bit where he says “love” three times and it’s the cutest thing in the world
  • When he roleplays Jane to help Bingley at the end


  • Not as pretty 
  • Not as angry
  • No curly hair

Daniel Vincent Gordh

He’s the originally faceless Darcy from Hank Green and Bernie Su’s webseries of Pride and Prejudice. His reveal on the show was one of the tensest moments of my life. This series sent me back onto my Pride and Prejudice obsession, because it was so painfully accurate and so painfully funny. Ashley Clements deserves a shout out for her version of Darcy 


  • Very cute
  • Never angry
  • So much tension and chemistry with Lizzie


  • Sometimes a little bit wooden
  • Not really my idea of Darcy
  • The bow ties 

Sam Riley 

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. That is correct, regency deliciousness, and rotting corpses. It’s perfect. The film is relatively new, and is based off the 2009 book of the same name. Sam Riley plays a zombie hunter, weapons master version of the Darcy we all know and love, taking his frustrations and general anger out on the undead. This film has many qualities, but one of its best is the truthfulness to the original whilst still being completely fresh. Take the first proposal scene for instance


  • Right level of constant annoyance
  • Totally in awe of Elizabeth


  • The voice doesn’t match his face?
  • Darcy’s emo phase
  • Leather jacket?

And the winner is…

Always Firth. He’s synonymous with the role, as soon as the name Fitzwilliam Darcy comes into my head, out he emerges in blazant glory and his wet white shirt. I love Macfayden because I love the 2005 adaption, but Colin Firth has played Darcy twice, and no body can top that.

OMG!! Guys I am 69 away from 1000 followers!!! That is so awesome!!! Thank you guys so so so much. So what would you like me to do when i reach 1000!!! 

1. Character Appreciation Week 

2. Mood Board Requests 

3. Fic Masterlist 

4. A Challenge (A Backstreet Boys one has been on my mind)

5. Fandom castings. @star-trekkin-across-theuniverse and I did this when we first were on Tumblr. We casted Star Trek characters in Pride and Prejudice and Emma I believe. We have plans to do Twelfth night. I just need to read it first.   

anonymous asked:

weird question and i dont know if you've been asked before but who would you cast as the characters in pride and prejudice, svt edition?? jihoon was giving me mr darcy vibes at first but jun could as well. but lizzie... i dont know!!!!! seokmin for bingley though, im 91% sure

i mean i can see a lot of different members as characters but my number one choice is definitely:

  • junhui as lizzie (fun, intelligent, likes to laugh, fiery spirit)
  • wonwoo as mr. darcy (seems cold and intimidating at first but is actually an awkward loser)
  • soonyoung as mr. bingley (cheerful and kind-hearted, also that soonwoo bromance friendship)
