You know the first thing I imagined was the face replaced with an otter.

He already sort of is, isn't he? What with being the Necromancer/Sauron
(along with Smaug) in Peter Jackson's Hobbit.

Put him in a cowboy duster, give'em a 5'oclock shadow and make a Harry Dresden movie with him as the star.

He could totally play Islington in a new verison of Neverwhere!

I saw someone else point out that he's clearly made to play Neil Gaiman's Dream. I completely agree!

Why is Tor suddenly obsessed with Benedict Cumberbatch? Frankly I'm a little embarressed at all this fan girling.

I, too, immediately thought of Harry. I was fervently hoping it was a one sheet for an upcoming TV movie or mini-series featuring the greatest PI ever to wander the streets of Chicago.

Ah, well, I can always dream, can't I?

Seriously, he'd be perfect for DWJ's Howl, of Howl's Moving Castle. (credit for this insight goes to phoenixgirl on the ABE Book Forum)
