  1. Yay for Valentine Morgenstern! Little upset they didn’t give him light hair though like in the books….Oh well!

    Can’t wait to see sexy JRM as Valentine!

  3. I wish his hair was white blonde, like it is supposed to be. That being said, I think he will do a fantastic job bringing Valentine to life on the big screen.

  4. Oh my god I love the Happy Me Day

  5. The only thing wrong is the color of his hair. He will make a great Valentine but the hair color is very important later on in the books. When they film the other books this will make a difference. Interesting to see how they deal with this very important element.

  6. Oh my god I wonder if they’ll keep his Irish accent. I hope they do.

    My mom would drool.

  8. First of all I think JRM will make an amazing Valentine just look at that icy glare, its perfect. But I think they are going to go for a very different Valentine all the same, look at his hair, the clothes (or lack there of) I think they are going with a more anarchic look and feel opposed to the surface calm and control of the books for more of an initial visual impact. Btw on a different note does anyone else think he kind of looks like Jamie?

    • Yes, I have always thought he and Jamie had a similar “look”. Their eyes and lips are quite similar. Check out Velvet Goldmine as well, when he was young (with Ewan McGregor and Christian Bale in it too). JRM speaks with a great English accent as well, which would fit better than Irish for this movie (see Match Point). One of my favorite actors!

  9. Okay, okay, wait a minute here. Isn’t Valentine supposed to have really light hair, almost white? I may be remembering it wrong, but that’s how I always pictured him, at least. And I know that Sebastian at least has basically white hair. I mean, don’t get me wrong. I love this Valentine, it’s just a little…jarring at first, seeing him so opposite to what I always pictured. I mean, he looks tought and young, and I pictured a weary and suave man wearing a suit and sometimes killing people in gear. Am I alone here?

    • I don’t know about a “suit”, as he is described as being in “gear” more often than not in the books. The blonde/white hair would be good, however, and JRM looks great with it as he wore it that way in Velvet Goldmine. Also, if/when they film the other books with Jonathan/Sebastian, it would work unless they will make him dark as well.

  10. I’m loving the “Happy Me Day”! So egotistic! Soooo Valentine! LOL

    Maybe at some point in the movies he’ll wear a suit too. That would be cool.


  12. His appearance is not what I expected at all! I was picturing him blond and very kind of high class looking. Here he looks pretty rugged and badass. It’s not a bad thing just different from what I expected! After all the stills I’ve seen it seems as if *fingers crossed* they stayed pretty close to the book.

  13. I just hope they keep to the books, in the sense that events are followed and respected.

  14. It’s really bothers me that he’s not blonde. I usually hate when character change through out movies but if they decided to make Valentine into a blonde with dark eyes for the 2nd movie I wouldn’t mind at all. If anything I’d be super happy. And also the way he dresses like seriously? This is not how I picture valentine AT ALL. The actor himself is just fine just give him some bleach, black contacts and a suit and he’ll be the Perfect Valentine. Because his hair color really do matter later on in the series
