Yeah, it's a double edged sword - we dont want a 'major hollywood megastar' overshadowing things again - much like 1989.
As I said previously, I was only pointing out that Law could do a decent job in response to some posts criticising his credentials for the role.
There are a few other, just as good, alternatives. Glover, Hulme, Eccleston etc.
I remember saying ages
ago that an 'off the wall' casting choice would be comedian Lee Evans. That one would be interesting.
