C’mon, Warner Bros, he successfully made a robot relatable while keeping him creepily distant. Let him have a whack at a control freak with a superiority complex and a sensitive ego.

    If you fanboys really adored Hugo Weaving and other character actors (Christoph Waltz, Jackie Earle Haley, Jason Isaacs, etc) you’d stop wanting them type cast in roles that are watered-down variations on roles they’ve already played. Hugo Weaving isn’t interested in being a “genre icon” anyhow, but a serious actor.

    Right. Sorry. I must have missed that in between his playing a robot, an elf, a superhero and another robot.

    His inimitable talents would exalt a terrifyingly relevant character. I should have wished for him to spend the rest of his life in a Sydney Shakespeare Co. production of “Coriolanus” and sequels to “The Interview.”

    I don’t know much about Hugo Weaving — certainly not the frightening amount a Google search of your name and his suggests that you do — but I know he can do take or decline whatever roles are offered him. If he wants to mix pop and art, God bless him.

    Crush much?
