Outlander's Tobias Menzies Accepts Black Jack's March BADness Win

You hate Outlander‘s Jonathan “Black Jack” Randall! You really, really hate him! And Tobias Menzies loves you for it.

Randall was voted worst TV villain in TVLine’s March BADness tournament, which pitted all types of small-screen baddies against each other to determine the most evil of all. During a recent interview in advance of the Starz drama’s Season 2 premiere, the actor said he was “flattered” to receive such a (dis)honor from our readers.

“I’m glad they hate him so much,” Menzies said, laughing.

All kidding aside, the actor then gave us his well-reasoned take on exactly why Randall strikes such a nerve among fans of the time-travel drama, which returns Saturday (9/8c). Press PLAY on the video above to hear what he had to say. 

Comments are monitored, so don’t go off topic, don’t frakkin’ curse and don’t bore us with how much your coworker’s sister-in-law makes per hour. Talk smart about TV!

    A well deserved win. I can’t watch that little snippet of Frank in the S2 trailer without cringing.

    Gotta say, as amazing as Menzies was in season 1, his performance in the premiere episode of season 2 proves without any doubt whatsoever he is one of the finest and most talented actors ever. No hyperbole, that. Just incredible, stunning work. If anyone was gonna take down Kilgrave, it had to be Randall!

    No chance. As many other polls online it was manipulated.
