So it's fairly common in comics fandom to discuss which actors would be cast for various characters.  Since Nightwing/Dick Grayson is one of my favorite characters, I'm often trying to figure out who would play him.  Matt Bomer is one of the more popular selections for him.  I've always been kind of neutral on this, but tonight it all slotted into place!!

Matt Bomer is Nightwing/Dick
Gabriel Macht is Batman/Bruce Wayne
Patrick J Adams is Robin/Tim Drake

I keep trying to mentally work in Tim DeKay too.  Commissioner Gordon doesn't quite work for me though.

THIS SO WORKS!!  I now want this so bad.  In lieu of this I'd take a Suits/White Collar/Batman fusion fic.

So I'm really enjoying re-watching "Suits" with the folks in the UK (I may also be re-watchign eps on my own as well).  I'm noticing little things I missed the first time.  Not surprising since [personal profile] crimsonquills [ profile] tartary_lamb [personal profile] barometry and I did the whole season in almost one big gulp.  We watched the first 7 or so eps on New Years Eve.  Every time an episode would end, we'd all look around at each other to see if we should keep going. The answer kept being "Yes" until around 3 am.  We finished off the rest of the episodes once we were all up and mostly awake on New Years Day.  This, my friends, is the awesomeness of fandom.

Anyway, now that I'm re-watching and reading some fic, I actually had a dream with Harvey in it the other night.  I rarely dream about fannish stuff, so it was a lovely surprise. :D

Also in fannish stuff, I LOVED this week's "White Collar".  No spoilers from me, but it was fun and funny!  Afterwards I ended up reading a Harvey Specter/Neal Caffrey fic and GUH!! There need to be more cross-over fics with these shows!!!  Though I can see Harvey thinking that Neal might be a bad influence on Mike. :)

I keep thinking I need to go and hunt down new fannish icons for Suits and Downton Abbey, but I kind of want to make some myself first.  That may end up being my weekend project. 

H50 casting/character news that I will put behind a cut Spoilerphobes beware. )

So while I was in Vancouver I was forced facilitated into the viewing of "Suits".  I knew that chunks of my flist had gone happy for the show, but I'd put off watching it.  Mostly because I didn't want to get sucked into another fandom at the time.  I was quite happy with Hawaii Five-0 and tend to stick to one fandom at a time.

Anyway, after an all night marathon with friends I was completely sold.  I've been enjoying several other of USA's shows for the same reasons I enjoyed Suits.  The characters (both male and female) are smart and well developed.  Even the "bad guys" tend to be more than one-dimensional.

Not going to lie, the blatant slash between Harvey and Mike doesn't hurt but my enjoyment of the show is so much more than that.  It makes me laugh and even pulls at the heart from time to time.

Because "Suits" went over so well, I decided to give "White Collar" a try.  I'm half-way through first season (unfortunately I have to fit work in with the viewing this time) and I'm loving it for all the same reasons.  It's smart, I like both Peter and Neil (and I LOVE ELLE), it's made me laugh out loud several times.  The one downside is I can't bring myself to fully slash Peter and Neil unless it's an OT3 with Elle.  Did I mention my love for her?

So...anyone want to share their squee on "Suits", "White Collar" or other USA shows?  Any good fics or vids you'd like to rec?

Please note possible spoilers in the comments!
