Have you noticed it? Guylty has been writing daily posts the last week, owing to the fact that I have not enough paid work and there for more time for my hobby. How are we coping with the onslaught? I’m happy experimenting with it, and am surprised to find that I actually have enough to talk and post about. And that is despite the continuing distraction via my junk journaling obsession.
I am currently feverishly working on a little recycling project – if you are interested I’ll show you in my next post. Maybe I’ll make a video again?!
I had planned to finish another Hannibal Re-watch post today. The discussion has actually been interesting on the previous two posts. Thank you to all for watching with me and commenting! I have noticed that there is currently a general Francis Dolarhyde/Red Dragon buzz going on. Saw some tweets with pics as well.
I am not so presumptuous to believe that it was *me* who revived the topic. Rather, I believe that Red Dragon Con 5 in London is already looming and making spectators itchy. Not a bad thing! However, after a surprising translation job this morning I got behind with my plan of watching episode 3×10 today for a post later this afternoon. So I am postponing that to tomorrow.
So instead I am taking my cue from Kate aka LenM and return for another instalment of the Fan A to Z. Kate tackled U today. If you haven’t subscribed to her blog My dearest Louise yet, you really should take a look now. Her writing is hilarious. Anyway, S it is today.
S – Which actor would you like to see him paired with in the future?
Ok, first of all: I would love to see RA in a classy British production. Doesn’t have to be period, can be any genre. I don’t mind if it is another thriller, for instance. Although I have tiny niggles with Joy Ellis’ writing, I do very much like her Inspector Jackman series, and like many other people (and the author herself) I think that RA would make a perfect DI Jackman. Would Emma Thompson be too old for Jackman’s more-than-a-sidekick Marie Evans? I just love Thompson – she is so clever, funny, downright convincing in any role that is thrown at her. And I can imagine her as the kick-ass DS, leather-clad and motorbike-loving. Yes, a tad older than Jackman (or Armitage, for that matter) but a great team. I confess that I am *tooootally* predictable as a female reader and actually would love some romantic action between Evans and Jackman in the Ellis thrillers. But I know and understand that that is not on the cards…
So without a romantic development on the horizon in the Fenland Constabulary, maybe I should have another go at answering this question? I would love to see RA paired up with a mature, English actor. And by mature I mean a woman his own age, not someone 15 years younger! After watching The Favourite the other day, Rachel Weisz comes to mind. Ok, or Olivia Colman. I personally like the latter better as an actor, but I think in order to be cast as a couple, Weisz would fit better. Just think of those two gorgeous human beings as an item – their dark hair and expressive faces. Ha, they could almost be cast as siblings, but no, I’d like to see them as a couple.
As for male actors – I’d love to see him paired with a character actor. Someone who has serious acting chops and isn’t (just) known as a gorgeous face. Plenty of choice there in Britain, and I would love to see him team up with Tim Roth. So good as a creepy, intense villain. So good, in fact, that I wouldn’t know now whether this dream cast would play together as a duo of baddies (modern!AU Robin Hood???? LOL), as two dream team heroes or playing against each other as baddie and good one (with RA playing the latter!!!)???
Dream casting is fun – who would *you* pair RA with? Let me know in the comments.
PS: Little update: Flat Richie has crossed the large pond… Won’t be long now until he visits his next victim 😉
