Ben Whishaw

Another day, another bit of Robopocalypse potential casting. Variety is reporting that Steven Spielberg wants Ben Whishaw (I’m Not There, the new Q in Skyfall) to play a hacker called Lurker for the sci-fi flick.

Normally, it would be hard to report on a wish list (because they represent casting that’s an inch and a mile away from the finalized deal), but there are two things here that make this unique. One, Whishaw is not on everyone’s wish list (even if he should be), and two, there’s a sentiment that Spielberg wanting something or someone means he’s going to get it or them.

If Whishaw does take the role, he’ll undoubtedly nail it and make it look easy in the process. He’ll also be busy, because this project is next once Spielberg gets Lincoln into theaters. For now, it’s still only a possibility.
