What? What? WHAT? No David Tennant? Unacceptable! :P
Arabian: Dr Who (Ten)arabian on March 21st, 2011 09:55 am (UTC)
He's not on TV currently, and you know that while I like him, he was never my favorite. Sorry. :(
Cassandra Elise: castle/beckettcassandra_elise on March 21st, 2011 02:19 pm (UTC)
Well, you do realise we can't be friends... ;)
Arabian: Dr Who (Ten)arabian on March 21st, 2011 11:41 pm (UTC)
I've accepted that you don't love Chris like I do, I think it only fair that you do the same. We both love them both, just not in equal amounts. We balance each other out this way. :Nods sagely:
Maeve: Chris Ecclestonmarble_rose on March 22nd, 2011 01:03 am (UTC)
Chris! NINE! Everyone keeps talking about how much they love Matt Smith or how much they miss David Tennant (they're both admittedly wonderful, but), and I'm still so head over heels for Chris.

*unapologetic Nine stan is unapologetic*

Icon Love ♥
Cassandra Elise: nine/rose kisscassandra_elise on March 22nd, 2011 03:17 am (UTC)
Aww, I love Chris. He's awesome as Nine. And I've watched crappy movies just so I could see him. :) Actually, I haven't seen an incarnation of the Doctor that I don't like. They're all lovable in their own ways, even "grouchy" One.

yaaay so much in common:

Dianna Agron, Candice Accola, Ian Somerhalder (*hearts along with you hehe*), Alexander Skarsgard (the one thing that got me through True Blood's third season lol), Nina Dobrev...

& I think Billie Piper is awesome as well, I watched a couple of episode sof Secret Diary of a Call Girl and I really took a liking to her =)
Arabian: Billie Piper_07arabian on March 21st, 2011 09:56 am (UTC)
Pretty much ditto all-around. Billie Piper is WONDERFUL. Love her.
x5valex5vale on March 21st, 2011 08:18 am (UTC)
I love both your lists.

I particularly like Tim De Kay and Candice Accola. I also love Josh Charles.

Ian is my favorite too.
Arabian: Damon09arabian on March 21st, 2011 09:56 am (UTC)
Thank you. Great actors, yup!
Beccy: TB ~ Askars1epic_love on March 21st, 2011 10:03 am (UTC)
Really good choices, especially Askars and Ian. And Jim. And Joshua. And Alison. And Candice. So basically all of them, hee.
I deny your reality, and write my ownspaceanjl on March 21st, 2011 10:45 am (UTC)
Oh, yay for the Tim DeKay love! I know the show is All About Neil, really, but it is Peter and El who ground it. (Still half a season behind here, and slightly alarmed by the HB hate coming out of some of the fandom.)

...am finally getting into 'Community', so recognise Alison Brie.
Vickiesarcasticcheese on March 21st, 2011 04:35 pm (UTC)
I wish I knew what it was that people saw about ASkars. I don't think he's attractive at all. Neither is Stephen.

Agree with 1, 3, 5, 6 and 11. I don't watch HIMYM, but I love NPH, so I could throw him on there. I would add Matt Bomer to the list because he's so purdy.

Your female list, OTOH, I agree with 1, 4 and 5. I adore Allison Janney and think she's hysterical on Mr. Sunshine, but I can't seem to get into the show. I don't know if there are 12 actresses on television that I could say I liked.

Yay, someone else watching Mr. Sunshine! :D
Arabian: Allison Janneyarabian on March 21st, 2011 11:43 pm (UTC)
You did it wrong.

Mr. Sunshine. Yay. Or even better --

Best. Theme. Song. EVER!

Hmmm. Now you've got me thinking about who would be on my list. I'm sure there would be a lot of overlapping because you and I tend to agree a freakish amount. I think the only things that don't coincide are for shows that I haven't seen, which makes me think that I should look into them because if you like them there's a good chance I will, ha.

Matt Smith ♥

Billie Piper ♥

never heard of most of the people on these lists.

don't watch much tv.

I had a fleeting moment of panic when I saw Josh Jackson's name, than I realized that you probably meant Matthew Perry (right. RIGHT?).

Adam Scott = greatest cast addition in recent memory.
Arabian: Ben & Leslie01arabian on March 23rd, 2011 01:20 am (UTC)
No, Tim Roth in Lie to Me. I think Mr. Sunshine is doing okay actually.

I heart Adam Scott SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO much.

Oh really? I had no idea that Lie to Me was on the verge of cancellation! I thought the show was doing well. That's good news for Matthew Perry though; I haven't seen the show yet, but I do love him and want him to do well.
