Happy early Christmas to me!

And now we can get on with the actual post, which just so happens to be the last NN of 2013!

I will, however, try to post any crazy awesome huge news on FB if anything comes up while I'm away.

*Yeah, OK, this tells nothing about the plot. But if you’ve seen either of the other movies, you know that plot really isn’t a driving factor. I’m excited. Deal with it.

  1. I'm pretty sure I could listen to Benedict speak all day. Good grief.

    Also? Cas. There's a great deal of win right there.

  2. SuperWhoLock is the best. Although, SuperWhoAvengeLock is even better, but that's just getting ridiculous.

    And I've not read as much Sandman as I should have—it's on the list—but I think it's a good sign that he's so interested in the project. People often seem to do better when they're invested in the role. (Minus Russell Crowe in Les Miserables, of course.)

  3. Benedict should record some voicemail messages. How fantastic would that be?


    Cas is the best. I'm so glad that he's back to nutty Cas rather than GodCas.

  4. Hah! Yes. GodCas was...something else.... I like "our regularly scheduled programming" Cas best, too.


    And OMG! yes. Cumberbatch voicemail recordings. I would buy stock in that, fo' shizz.

  5. There is much time to read Sandman and it's so worth it. I love Gaiman (obsessively) at the best of time, but Sandman makes me weak in the knees. You're right, JGL's passion is a great, great thing. I'm sure, if "starring" equates his role as Dream, he'll do a good job. I think he understands that Sandman's too important to its fanbase to royally truck it up.

    Hah! SuperWhoAvengeLock, indeed. Did you see this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ac3_Nrc3-7E&feature=share ? Not a bad mashup.
