They'll probably just use make-up to have a single actor play the adult Tolkien at every age from 20 to 70.

Cumberbatch does actually look a bit like the young Tolkien, though. And he is a good actor, even though I haven't been too impressed by his choice of roles lately. Razz

He's getting to be quite a big deal though. So, I guess it would have to be a proper big deal biopic for them to even be able to get him involved. Though, that said, The Imitation Game was pretty much made as an independent movie. So, who knows. If it's the right project, maybe he'll get involved.. he said about a fictional role in a fictional project, assuming the actor and director in this fictional scenario has even contemplated the question.

Bogbrick Scramblypatch has played 1st world war officers before, plus he can do the "stiff upper lip" so I wouldnt be surprised Smile He's a very good actor I think, we need a well heeled Englishman to play a well spoken Englishman.

I haven't been keeping up, but there's going to be a movie about Tolkien? Shocked

There are two in development, but it remains to be seen if either of them actually get made.

Neither staring Benedict Cumberbatch though. Though perhaps they'll look into casting Eddie Redmayne. Shrugging Sofa

Wait, where is that image from?

And who the heck dared to bring up that poser Redmane in the Cumberbatch thread! Mad
