What actors would play the Doctor if Doctor Who was an American show?

Image
The British sci-fi show Doctor Who has just passed it's 50th Anniversary and there is no arguing that the show is, and has been, a phenomenal hit. But one Doctor Who fan on tumblr, Smug Mode, has been wondering what the show would be like if it were an American production. They have cast their American Doctors and have shared it with the world which can be seen below. I have to say that they did a pretty good job at casting all of the roles while staying true to that particular Doctor's personality. (Though I do not know if I would be able to watch Christopher Walken as the 6th Doctor.) Take a look at who made the cut and let me know what you think of these castings and it you would have enjoyed that actor in the title role.

Harley Quinn surprises the Joker on Valentine's Day!

Image
Harley Quinn sure has a lot of love to give the Joker and in this piece drawn by artist Abraham Lopez she tries to spice things up for Valentine's Day. However, Harley didn't know that the Joker would be bringing home a "friend". This amazing piece is titled "This Love Is Madness" and is a truly funny piece of art.  "There is someone for everyone, is what I get when I look at this relationship. It could be a bit abusive and one sided at times, but it's love.   I had sketched this out on the weekend and thought it would be appropriate to post it on Valentine's day. I'm still playing around with a specific look for how I want to draw Joker. I did know that I wanted to draw him with his hat, just because you don't see him wear it nowadays.  A beat and tied up Robin was one of the original ideas when first sketching this, but I also tried having Joker hold a bag of money as if he had just came bank from some successful robbing. Then I showe…

AT-ATs attack Olympic mogul skiers in this great Star Wars / Olympics crossover! [video]

Listen to Frozen's "Let It Go" when put through Google Translate. [video]

Malinda Kathleen Reese came up with a great idea on how to show you how messed up Google Translate can make things. Taking one of her new favorite songs, "Let It Go" from Disney's Frozen, Reese put the lyrics to the song through several different languages in Google Translate and then translated them back into English. The result that she got back was not quite what the original song started as and even funnier when you listen to Reese dramatically sing the new lyrics to the song's melody (along with a video from the actual film). I also have to say that Reese has a great voice in her own right. Well done!

Star Wars Rebels reveals a new Jedi character! [video]

A new exciting character has just been revealed for the upcoming show Star Wars Rebels! The new character is named Kanan and will be voiced by actor Freddie Prinze Jr.. Kanan is "a gunslinger full of bravado" who will be part of the crew of the spaceship "Ghost".

Kanan is a Jedi who lived through Order 66, the order by Emperor Palpatine to hunt down and kill all remaining Jedi, and has since been keeping a low profile so that he is not hunted down. Prinze says that this has massively affected him and that you will see signs of it in the show.
"He keeps his lightsaber under lock and key and brandishes a blaster instead to avoid the attention of the Empire, especially the Inquisitor (a Sith villain) and his Stormtroopers. But Kanan gets his Force-ful groove back with his crew on the spaceship The Ghost and fights back against the imperial menace." Executive producer Dave Filoni describes the character of Kanan as a "cowboy Jedi." He is more laid …

Amazing RoboCop metal theme! [video]

YouTuber, and metal rocker, 331Erock has just released a new fantastic metal video and this time he is covering the classic RoboCop theme! This is definitely a theme that lends itself to an amazing metal cover and 331Erock nailed this one. For those that are only partly familiar with the RoboCop theme, you'll recognize the song at the 50 second mark. "So as many of you may or may not know, the new Robocop is about to hit very shortly. The original Robocop is one of my favorite movies of all time. Not to mention, my very first rated R flick. What else can I say? Robocop was flawless and Mr. Poledouris is a boss. Such a great and characterizing theme." Enjoy!

Forging the Energy Sword from Halo in real life! [video]

Master swordsmith Tony Swatton has just released a new Men At Arms video and gamers out there will love this one. The weapon this week is one of the most requested weapons Swatton has gotten and it is the Energy Sword from the Halo series. I can watch episodes of Men At Arms over and over and this week is no exception. The final result looks amazing and the fact that Swatton color tempered the steel (at 646 degrees F) to give it a fantastic purple finish really adds to the overall look. He did an amazing job.

Incredible Harley Quinn fan art perfectly captures her two mental states; playful and insane!

Image
Artist Fabian Monk has drawn up two incredible photos of the DC character Harley Quinn for Sideshow Collectibles. Monk's take on Harley is absolutely perfect and forgoes the current "sexual" Harley for the classic "crazy" Harley. He has drawn two pieces that show her mental states of playfulness and insane. "For this piece, two different faces were requested, which I’m kind of glad for . The two pieces end up covering her emotional spectrum a bit better; playful, in an unsettling sort of way, as well as kinda fucking batshit." Wonderful job! *Click images to enlarge.

"Lady Sif comes here on a hunting mission — sent by Odin — to find her arch-enemy Lorelei and bring her back to Asgard. It throws our agents for a loop when they find themselves in a fight right alongside this powerful woman from Thor's world."" Jamie Alex…
