I know I keep saying I’m gone, but I just keep finding things I want to comment on so I’m going to retract that statement. I won’t be posting much, but I did want to say something about this.
I think Colin O’Donoghue is a great actor. I’m with those who think it’s all about a good actor, the writing, and the character though. Colin O’Donoghue is not Killian Jones or James Hook. If something happens that he can’t keep being Hook, I want Hook to stay around whether it’s the same actor or not. I hope Captain Hook will be recasted by somebody else. I think the show would be better for it. They need somebody a little more grown up and well-rounded, anyway. The reasons I say that would be more appropriate for another topic because it’s going to be the type of conversation that makes people think. I don’t feel like going there today.
I know there are people who think it’d be a problem having somebody else in that outfit. They’ll get over it, and quickly, especially if the replacement is good looking as Colin is.
By the way, you’ll notice his image is gone from my avatar. It’s not by accident.
Jaime Dornan isn’t that great a choice, but there is a guy who is in the Hobbit who would be perfect for it (one of the “lads”).
If they don’t do this, before long, I’ll be moving over into the Neal camp. For the meantime, I’m tweeting daily to ask K&H, and Jane Espenson to pick another Hook.
