I found this movie at Walmart and was all excited. Then I read the back cover. It wasn’t a documentary on the early career of Sean Bean.
So I went home with only Ripper Street, staring my other favorite actor.
It got me thinking: Matthew MacFayden plays Mr. Darcy in Pride and Prejudice.
Why couldn’t Sean?
He’s English, he’s hot, he’s…well, He’s Sean Bean.
But when I really thought about it I realized, he could be Darcy, but probably shouldn't.
Four Reasons Sean Bean could play Mr. Fiztwilliam Darcy:
- He can be stern and brooding and a bit scary--The Hitcher, Wicked, Robot Chicken
- He’s a daring entrepreneur--Ca$h, Soldiers of Fortune, National Treasure
- He’s heroic and noble--Lord of the Rings, Age of Heroes, Sharpe Series
- He’s Family Oriented--Patriot Games, Silent Hill
And one Reason Why Sean shouldn’t play Mr. Darcy:
*** Nobody wants Mr. Darcy to die. ****
Seriously? Raise your hand if you didn’t see that coming.
