Pop Goes the Turnip

It’s been a while since we’ve played around with casting… but I was at the gym recently and ran into Turnip Fitzhugh (hero of the upcoming Mischief of the Mistletoe!). Being Turnip, I found him in a very unlikely place: in an 80’s music video called Pop Goes the World.

My image of Turnip? The lead singer from Men Without Hats.

Someone else just told me that she saw Turnip as a young Robert Redford.

How do you picture Turnip?

    Your pic of Redford is exactly how I imagine Turnip! Expression and all! Perfect.

    I like the Robert Redford pic for him better. I just can’t get past the 80s video garb on the first guy.

    I think Robert Redford fits the bill for Turnip

    I see Turnip, 100% as Young Sherlock Holmes himself, Nicholas Rowe, yum! But picking leadbing men for 80s bands is great too!

    Okay, I’ve pictured one guy in my head for Turnip forever.. Joseph Gordon-Levitt. He’s an awesome actor, has no problem playing a goof when required.

    I like young Robert Redford and Joseph Gordon-Levitt but I always pictured Charlie Hunnam, the guy who played Nicolas Nickleby.

    Uhhh, I pictured David Spade or Dominic Monaghan

    Carole: no way…LOL…

    For general cluelessness & friendly disposition, I keep picturing the guy who played Bertie Wooster on the BBC. Like a big friendly dog. (I want to say Hugh Laurie???)

    … would that make Arabella into Jeeves?

    I don’t have a specific celeb in mind, but the pics you posted are not at all how I pictured Turnip.

    Raelyn – my boys ::heart:: Charlie Hunnam for his role on Sons of Anarchy. They cringe at the thought that he’s really British, tho. haha. I actually see him more in the role of Robert.

    For some reason I picture him to be someone like George on Grey’s Anatomy.

    Yvette, that’s who my little sister picked, too! Hugh Laurie as Bertie Wooster.

  14. Lauren on May 20, 2010 at 11:42 am

    Anne K, I agree– that expression is classic Turnip. Shades of “huh?”

  15. Katherine on May 30, 2010 at 10:32 pm

    For expressions and behavior, Bertie Wooster would be perfect. But for some reason I always imagined Turnip having red hair, maybe kind of Rupert Grint-looking? (except he’s probably too young…)
