    QUOTE (Mirror.co.uk) Jan 12 2005 Dr Who return hit by shortage of dwarf actors Exclusive By Cameron Robertson FILMING of the new Doctor Who series has been hit by a shortage of midget actors. Bosses wanted them to play tiny blue aliens - but most have been snapped up for the new Charlie and the Chocolate Factory movie and to play Gringotts Bank staff in the new Harry Potter film. Dr Who executive producer Russell T Davies said: "It's very difficult to employ persons of restricted growth when, as our producer Phil Collinson says, `Bloody Gringotts and the Chocolate Factory are filming at the same time'." Insiders on the BBC1 sci-fi drama admit it has proved a headache during shooting of the 13-part series, due to be wrapped up next month. One said: "The two big movies have snapped up the talent. It's been hard to find who we want." Peter Burroughs - whose Peterborough-based Willow Personal Management is one of just two UK agencies for dwarf actors - admitted he had been unable to supply Dr Who with a 3ft 8in star. He said: "That was very difficult to find, especially with the other productions going on." The new series, with Christopher Eccleston as Dr Who and Billie Piper as sidekick Rose Tyler, is due to start in March.
  2. http://www.newsarama.com/22873-suicide-squad-cast-named-will-smith-is-deadshot-jared-leto-is-the-joker-more.html So. I don't know. Leto could make a nice Joker, and the rest of the cast seems okay, but I'm still very suspicious of the DC cinematic universe.
  3. Jason Patric and Lucy Punch cast in the pilot. Handled properly, this could be a really fun TV show.
  4. I love Grant Morrison, but...

    Damn, it IS superhero Conjob! :D
  5. WHO's that girl?

    Call me the Grinch, but I wasn't feeling this one [though I mostly liked Frosty Claus]. Still, wasn't catastrophically bad, and it did get me to rewatch that Rick & Morty episode. So, meh humbug.
  6. Concerning the Forum Banner...

    I suggested that as well, because I think we should own entire Constantine's history, but... It's Chinatown, Greg.
  7. Question regarding John and Zatanna

    Actually, Christian, Gaiman's mini is from 1991, I think, and it refers to them having a romantic history:
  8. WHO's that girl?

    So, are we properly pumped for the upcoming Christmas special?
  9. Ratings

    What is that forecast based on?
  10. Agents of SHIELD

    Didn't they already give up Agent Cooper's identity?
  11. Arrow

    First The Flash, then Arrow. Though they're more-or-less both standalone episodes, really.
  12. The Introduce Yourself Thread

    Welcome, make yourself at cyber-home!
  13. Question regarding John and Zatanna

    Gaiman's Books of Magic miniseries, Issue #2, has some nice, understated stuff with John and Zatanna too.
  14. I just go to keepvid.com and download, since I try not to clutter my Chrome with too many apps.
  15. I love Grant Morrison, but...

    No sirree, Lou! I do apologize for tantalizing you more than you need to be.
  16. I love Grant Morrison, but...

  17. Hellblazer Q&A

    I had a good laugh when I saw his signature on a cover tweeted by someone from the Constantine TV show.
  18. Hellblazer Q&A

    It was a digital signature of the guy who used to do pirated scans of most Vertigo comics, back in the day.
  19. I love Grant Morrison, but...

    If you don't get it, you might want to look it up digitally, then get the trade?
  20. That, I shall. For the forcoming new one, in order of appearance Bissete McKean Ridgway Williams Fabry Simpson Dillon Phillips Bradstreet Higgins Frusin Manco Bermejo Jock Camuncoli Bisley Matt Ryan Might be fair to throw in a surprise appearance by Keanu, somewhere around Frusin/Manco?
  21. Vertigo back on the ledge

    I am also digging the start to this new Astro City arc. Return to form indeed.
  22. Have all the 52 earths been uncovered? Is there a "Vertigo" Earth, by any chance?
  23. I love Grant Morrison, but...

    Yeah, he went a few levels up from his [really great] Batman Inc. stuff. He's really tapping into all that neat Corbenesque 80's Heavy Metal stuff with his coloring and grimaces.
