Merlin, Q, Bates and Ron Weasley Have Formed A Gang
This might be the most Anglophenia photo ever, a feat that is all the more remarkable given that it features no Tom Hiddleston and no Benedict Cumberbatch.
But look, there’s Colin Morgan from Merlin, Rupert Grint from Harry Potter, Daniel Mays (covering the Doctor Who angle), Ben Whishaw from the James Bond movies and Brendan Coyle from Downton Abbey. They’re all appearing (with Tom Rhys Harries) in the London revival of the Jez Butterworth play Mojo at the Harold Pinter Theatre from now until the end of February.
It’s a far more adult tale than any of the TV shows and movies they are more famous for. In a tale of 1950s nightlife, Rupert and Daniel play drug dealers, Brendan is a local hard-nut, Colin a frail character called Skinny, and Ben playing the unhinged Baby.
There’s a full report over at BBC News, or you can just spend a while staring at this picture and wondering if these guys would consider putting a band together.
