So for my first casting of the summer it’s the nefarious Captain Hook and the bumbling Mr. Smee!
For Hook, I didn’t want any sex appeal, and if there was any I wanted it to be extremely uncomfortable. I also was looking for someone who could make us laugh, but perhaps pull off the sadistic nature of the Captain. I think Russell Brand is capable of the task, and if not, well, at least he looks the part.
For the adorable Mr. Smee I went with a choice that will make you Harry Potter fangirls question my abilities. Timothy Spall to many of us will forever be the traitorous Peter “Wormtail” Pettigrew. However, I’ve taken into consideration that his “type cast” is the bumbling, yet not so incompetent, sidekick of the villain. I believe that he could pull off Smee with little trouble at all.
