Colin Firth Leaves Other Darcys in the Dust in my Poll

For a while there, Matthew Macfadyen was neck in neck with Colin Firth, but in the last three days, Colin pulled ahead, gaining an insurmountable lead over the 2005 Mr. Darcy. Poor David Rintoul, with his high cheekbones, did not merit so much as one vote even though Jane purists tell us that he is actually closest to Jane Austen's Mr. Darcy. Without Meredith's vote, Laurence Olivier would have shared Rintoul's fate, and I think the only reason Elliot Cowan received any votes was because he looked good in a wet shirt in Lost in Austen. So the poll is closed, and we now know the winner. Colin Firth reigns supreme. Thank you for participating.

  3. Of course, my poll is not scientific, and Pam M from AHA may have called all her friends to vote for Colin, but 16 points is big gap. But your right, we still love Matt and his long lashes.
