Big ups to Ryan! Thanks dude, wherever you are.
- Nice to finally have oonfirmation of my suspicions that he actually LOVED playing Fat!Lee. ;) (At least at first, granted...)
- The bit where he goes into how social media and such factors into the casting process is really, really interesting. I would still argue that it's smart to know the avenues available to promote a show based on the following of the cast and/or creative talent. (Still feel like ITV's general softballing of their publicity for programming completely failed to capitalize, for example, on both Jamie's and Freema's following to promote LOUK.) However... he's absolutely right in that, if an actor's following online is dictating whether or not they're being considered for a role? That's ridiculous. Cast the right goddamn actor for the role; all the followers in the world isn't going to help a show that doesn't work because it's badly cast. :P
- No one asked about 17th Precinct. Therefore, still on my to-do list. ;)
