BBC Casts 12th Doctor

Matt Smith’s run as the 11th incarnation of the famed Time Lord came to an end today, and the Beeb wasted no time in finding someone even younger and more obscure to replace him. “Matt was an unknown,” says showrunner Stephen Moffat. “He brought a new energy and urgency to the role of the Doctor that a more seasoned actor might not have had. Even though he was only the Doctor for a few minutes, and he walked like a drunken giraffe and he wasn’t even Scottish, I think he’ll be missed. We knew the next Doctor had to be an even fresher face.” Moffat stated that the next Doctor will be a 6-year-old boy from Sri Lanka who has never acted and is unaware that he has been cast.

Is it just me, or are more and more good acting jobs going to Sri Lankans. I think it is time for a Dr. Who union

Dude, I heard the Tea Baggers were involved. Something about Matt Smith being a hopey-changey Communist.
