Is Skyfall’s Rory Kinnear Your New Doctor Who?
According to one newspaper, that’s a Yes.
If, that is, he accepts the gig, because according to The Telegraph, actor Rory Kinnear (“Skyfall”) has been “offered” the role by the BBC.
The newspaper quotes an unnamed source as saying:
He has been offered the part and we are waiting to hear if he will accept. He is the perfect choice.
Wait, so those three guys we listed previously are out? Bummer. I was kind of hoping for a black Doctor Who. Or maybe Dominic Cooper (though I always thought he was a longshot, being too famous and all).
So who is Rory Kinnear? As previously mentioned, his biggest high-profile role to date has been in Sam Mendes’ James Bond movie “Skyfall”, but IMDB.com has him listed as having a pretty extensive British TV career, so he’s not a completely unknown.
But if true, of course he’s going to say Yes. Who would turn down a gig as Doctor Who?
