Excellent.

That is all.

Very happy about this! He is a fabulously talented actor and I can't wait for him to be back on stage. The only thing that could make it better is Adam James joining him!

Whether you are a theatre addict or not has much to do with how many opportunities you get in other media I suspect. Which reflects the peculiar demands of film and tv rather than talent. And from all actors in his age group, David Tennant is the only one who has done all the shakespearean roles at the right time. He is the only one with a good chance to complete the set.

No he isn't. Rory Kinnear.

Rory Kinnear hasn't done Romeo. In fact how much Shakespeare has he done? Laertes, Hamlet, Angelo, Bolingbroke on film. Anything else?
The same goes for Ben Whishaw and Ed Redmayne. They have done high profile roles but nowhere the range and variety David Tennant has done. Although they are ten years younger, they could catch up.

Jonathan Slinger although he seems to be doing them in reverse age order

Kinnear is about to do Iago which Tennant hasn't done. He'll certainly do miore Shakespeare and he's several years younger than Tennant. I bet Hytner directs him in Much Ado within the next three years

In other long-term RSC casting news, John Kani lined up to play Lear set in Africa.

Interesting - doing it with sons rather than daughters will please those who feel there are far too many big Shakespearean roles for women
