OUTLANDER Casting: Colum and Dougal!

More casting news! STARZ announced today that they have cast a pair of Scottish actors to play Colum and Dougal MacKenzie in the OUTLANDER TV series.

Here's the announcement, from Diana Gabaldon's Twitter page.



Gary Lewis will play Colum MacKenzie.



Graham McTavish will play Dougal MacKenzie.

From what I understand, Gary is 5'6" and Graham is 6'2", so the difference in their heights will be very apparent.  And they do resemble each other somewhat, which is good.

It's very exciting to see how the cast is coming together!  (In case you're wondering, no, we still don't know who's going to play Claire.)

What a nice choice! Specially Gary, he will BE Colum... I think.

So far I'm really digging the casting choices. I'm on pins and needles waiting for Claire though.

I love all the casting they are doing and it's fantastic to be able to follow all the process. I'm really enjoying it so much!
I even became a Twitter user just to keep myself updated with all Starz news, following producers, actors and writers. I love to see how much they love the books and how they interact with Diana all the time. I guess she's enjoying it very much too.

I think they both look right for the roles. Interestingly, I see that both Gary Lewis and Sam Heughan (cast as Jamie) have starred together already - in First Light (2010). I love that they're casting Scottish actors.
