1st official look at the kilted star of Ron D. Moore’s time-traveling Outlander series

Time travel just got a whole lotta hotter.

Starz has finally released the first official pic of actor Sam Heughan—kilted like the true Scotsman that he is— as Outlander’s young romantic hero James Alexander Malcolm MacKenzie Fraser, or Jamie Fraser for short. You know, the one executive producer Ronald D. Moore (Battlestar Galactica) called the king of men? (And we happen to know that he's quite right about that. But we digress.)

It all started with a little innocent post last evening on Facebook by Outlander_Starz:

FOR THE BEST FANS IN THE WORLD. Here's what your wee hearts have desired. James Alexander Malcolm MacKenzie Fraser.

Attached to it was, of course, this rather nice official pic of Sam Heughan looking all manly (is it hot in here?) in his kilt with an adorable tousle of red hair.

And then Facebook literally exploded in a complete squall of female geekgasm. There are, to date, over 1,500 Facebook comments on this pic alone. So have yourself a little JAMMF (James Alexander Malcolm MacKenzie Fraser) and let us know what you think. We think he'll do verra well, you guys. Verra well indeed.

Ron D. Moore's time-traveling drama series Outlander will air on Starz sometime in 2014.
