Pegg tweets that Gollum is replacing David Tennant in Burke & Hare

01.20.2010

It was too good to be true.

Simon Pegg announced this earlier via his Twitter account: "David Tennant had to drop out of B&H but by sheer glorious serendipity a legend of Middle Earth and Skull Island has come aboard. Welcome AS"

However, when you check the link of the original "tweet" it seems to have disappeared. It did happen, as evidenced by all the re-tweets and replies Pegg received, but maybe he wasn't supposed to give out that morsel of casting information.

Serkis is connected with both actors through different projects. Pegg and Serkis both do voices in Steven Spielberg's upcoming THE ADVENTURES OF TINTIN: THE SECRET OF THE UNICORN. In the 2008 BBC drama, EINSTEIN AND EDDINGTON, Serkis was Albert Einstein while David Tennant played astronomer, Arthur Eddington.

I'm not sure why Tennant would pass up the chance to star alongside Pegg in a film directed by John Landis. Maybe he wants a break since his run on DOCTOR WHO is over. I really think the team up of Tennant and Pegg would have been something memorable, but I'll take Serkis instead.

Extra Tidbit: I find it funny that David Tennant is now dating Georgia Moffett, the girl who played his Daughter in an episode of DOCTOR WHO. He's also 14 years older than Moffett. I have no issue with this.

Here, Pegg also Tweeted this about an hour ago:
"Dear news vultures picking thru my banal tweets for scraps of relevance, I am NOT in Harry Potter but I am the new Q in James Bond. (FALSE)."

Tennant is incredibly overrated as a Doctor. Can't hold a candle to the best of 'em.

I simply don't rate the man. He's got about three facial expressions and his vocal affectations are annoying.

I suppose it doesn't help that a fair number of the stories he's been in have been either outright terrible or average at best. The new series has been on a downward curve for a long time, each year has been worse than the previous one. A pity, because it all started out so well with Eccleston.

And just when I thought everything would improve with the absence of Trapdoor Jaw Tate,

And just when I thought everything would improve with the absence of Trapdoor Jaw Tate, they replace Tennant with some rubbery-lipped, semi-human troglodyte child actor.

Tennnant is working on a pilot for a show called Rex Is Not Your Lawyer- maybe there was some manner of unforeseen commitment to that. I would suggest a better offer or something, but as you said, it's John Landis!
On the bright side, Andy Serkis is an excellent actor.

And it was none other than the Master who had an educated guess as to what was going on.

This is possibly the worst news I've read on here in a long time. I was really anticipating Tennant and Pegg together. I hope we find out what happened. This is just horrible.

I was conflicted when I first read that headline

But I'll be damned, I think I'm looking forward to this even more now.
