Outlander Casting News: Black Jack and Frank!

Tobias Menzies will be Black Jack Randall and Frank RandallOutlander author Diana Gabaldon just announced that the dual roles of Jonathan “Black Jack” Randall and his 20th-century descendant Frank has been cast in the upcoming Outlander television series from Starz.

Tobias Menzies, most recently seen on Game of Thrones as Edmure Tully, will be playing both parts.

While the two Randalls are identical, their behavior is distinctly different, as Outlander's heroine Claire will discover.

The role of Jamie Fraser will be played by Scottish actor Sam Heughan, and we're still waiting to hear who will be his Claire Randall.

Great casting! This man can do bad really good! By the way I think they might have him play Alex Randall as well because in the books they look as they were twins....but that comes in the later books.

Very happy with this pivotal character casting!

I'm quite pleased with this selection. I can easily see Tobias Menzies being both nice guy Frank Randall and sadist Black Jack Randall.
