Because I still can’t believe he has taken a supporting role in the big screen adaptation of Dan Brown’s Angels and Demons, and because I need to cleanse my palate, today I present to you the 4 Fictional Characters Ewan McGregor Has Portrayed in Big Screen Adaptations of Novels That Are Sexier Than a Vatican Official.
4. Frank Churchill in Emma, adapted from the novel by Jane Austen:
Okay, so he’s no Mr. Knightley (or comparable to any other male leads from Austen’s novels) and you can sorta understand why Amy Heckerling turned his character gay in Clueless. I mean, he does gossip more than the girls in this adaptation of one of Austen’s gossipiest novels.
3. Joe Taylor in Young Adam, adapted from the novel by Alexander Trocchi:
Yeah, he’s a reckless womanizer, and his girlfriends sometimes end up dead, but still sexier than a Vatican official. All he does in this movie is seduce, seduce, seduce.
2. Ed Bloom in Big Fish, adapted from the novel by Daniel Wallace
(Picture coming soon)
He's maybe a little too perfect in this movie. A total DILF.
1. Mark Renton in Trainspotting, adapted from the novel by Irvine Welsh:
It’s hard to describe Renton’s sexiness. And unless you find men crawling out of toilet bowls sexy, it’s hard to find a picture that captures it. But if he were a real person, I probably would take him home and then proceed to stalk him and serenade him with New Order songs.
