Rupert Grint would be BRILLIANT as the next Doctor Who. The Doctor made clear several times that he wished to be ginger, and so it would be great to fulfill that desire with the perfect actor. That actor would be Rupert Grint. PLEASE spread the word! He would add the requisite humour and intensity, yes, but also a refreshing and much-needed visual change. Too many people are fixed on other actors simply due to trite fan popularity (like Benedict Cumberbatch or Patrick Stewart, etc.), or absurd inclusions of names just for inclusion's sake (like Samuel Jackson or Daniel Radcliffe, etc.). However Rupert would be ideal. Let's begin a solid fan-based, grass-roots campaign to see this come to fruition! Indeed, we hope this idea gets spread and finds its way to Dr. Who producers and even to the actor himself! Best.
I totally agree! I had this covnversation with my friends, and the doctor has to be good at maki a faces too! And Rupert Grint has some awesome faces!!!!!! There should be a huge petition that we all send to BBC! Ohh that'd be amazing! I could just see it! GRINT FOR DOCTOR!!!!! I'm glad i'm not alone!
