A Pocket Full of Murder

Heh. Heh. Heh.

I have just had a completely bizarre, yet oddly compelling notion to try and cast the Canadian Idol Top 11 as Harry Potter characters. Because a scarifying number of them actually fit, in looks and sometimes even in personality.

For instance, would everybody with a high speed connection watch at a minute or two of this -- it doesn't take long to load -- and tell me that this man does not resemble James Potter? A reformed James Potter, I mean, after he grew out of hexing people just for the fun of it. (People without fast connections can just have a look at the pictures here, instead.)

And then we have a definite contender for Sirius, and a pretty plausible Hermione (ignore the front page shot, but check out the pics under the "Click here for more..." portrait), maybe even a Peter...

OK, so the rest don't really fit. But man, if I could just get all the HP fans I know to watch Canadian Idol next week... Ryan would so win that competition. I mean, even if he wasn't by far the best singer and performer of the Top Two, how could you resist voting for a guy who looks like James Potter?
