Your Face Is Pretty And I Enjoy Watching You In Stuff: Richard Ayoade
- Idris Elba as James Bond
- Richard Ayoade as Q
If Idris Elba are to be James Bond, can we have Richard Ayoade as Q please?
YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES
I was trawling Google for IT Crowd stuff and: unexpected young Richard Ayoade.
I just thought y’all might like to take a look, for obvious reasons.
Doctor Who Racebending:
Ukweli Roach as Eleven: He has Eleven’s sense of bafflement and wonder down pat, and has already played an old man in a young man’s body (see: Eternal Law)
Sophie Okenodo as River: As we saw in The Beast Below, she is badass and knows her way around a gun.
Antonia Thomas as Amy: Tough, smart, and (let’s face it) beautiful.
Richard Ayoade as Rory: Stop picturing him as Moss for a second, and you’ll realise he can do adorkable very well
Lenny Henry as Nine: Contrary to popular belief, he can act. The Independent said of his Othello: “The frenzy within his imagination explodes into rage and, finally, wretchedness.” Oh, he’d have made a brilliant Nine.
Paterson Joseph as Ten: He can do both drama and comedy, and is mega-charismatic
Nina Toussaint-White as Rose: Remember her as Mels? Oh god, she’d be a perfect Rose.
Meera Syal as Donna: Another fine actress known mostly for comedy. Remember her as Nasreen? She’d be great.
Chiwetel Ejiofor as the Master: Ejiofor in Serenity was BRILLIANT, one of my favourite villains of all time, he was so good. Basically he should play every villain ever.
Michael Obiora as Jack: He was Billy Shipton in Blink- the lovely, flirty Billy. Look! He’s got no shirt on!
Art Malik as Wilf: Internationally famous, great actor.
Marianne Jean-Baptiste: Anyone ever seen her in Secrets And Lies, Mike Leigh’s family drama? I just get the feeling she’d make a really good Jackie.
Kehinde Fadipe as Sally: She was great in Misfits, vunerable and tough all at once.
Daniel Kaluuya as Craig: Have you ever seen Black Mirror? Oh god he is a FABULOUS actor. He could do everything required of Craig, comedy and drama and everything.
Angel Coulby as the TARDIS: She’d be brilliant, nuff said
Gina Torres as Canton: Because she ought to be in EVERYTHING.
Racebending Doctor Who - Richard Ayoade as Rory
Okay, so you’ve probably only ever seen him as Moss in The IT Crowd, but he’s definiately capable of Serious Acting. In Garth Merengi’s Darkplace (never seen it? It’s brilliant!) all the actors walk a fine line between serious acting and seriously terrible acting, and that takes skill. And, as demonstrated in the picture, he can do adorkable very well.
