I am 100% sure that Ben REALLY wanted to do this or, believe me, he wouldn't have. It's true that he's got more options than a quarterback and "IF" Theron or Blunt REALLY wants to do this, that would clearly open some doors. I'm just not sure that's the case and we may never know. He crushed it as Sherlock Holmes. As I understand it, he didn't have to renew, but wanted to; so what're they gonna say? No? Not in this time-space continuum. As far as Strahovski goes, she's a bit of an unknown quantity, but I feel sure that if she got the right script, she could be terrific. I loved her in Chuck (though some may disagree). She had a LOT of the characteristics I want to see in Carol and portrayed them very effectively. Hemsworth is just fine thank you very much.
