This is the height of frivolous nonsense, but hey, where can you be silly these days if not in fandom?

So, I've been idly browsing YouTube bits of The Mighty Boosh because I've spent the whole day with my face in the computer, bashing my brains against a story that won't budge, and I can't handle sustained narratives or complexity right now. So antic rubbish it is. And I can't escape the thought that Noel Fielding would have made a perfect Snape, for certain values of "one person's perfect is another's you've-got-to-be-kidding-me." But seriously. Pop some black contact lenses on that lad, and you're pretty much good to go.

The big problem would have been keeping his bubbly, anarchic personality under wraps, because it's a mistake to play Snape as a cartoon villain, as much as he sometimes resembles one. I also doubt Noel has the acting chops to pull off simmering rage, buried grief, and genuine viciousness. But physically? Ten years ago he was the right age, the right build, he's still the right height, he has the hair and the profile, and he's got the ugly/hot thing down. Granted, half the time the director would have had to flail at him to stop grinning and mugging, because he's a very smiley chap, not at all Snape-like in person.

Anyone else fond of some totally unlikely casting for Snape? Because the day will undoubtedly come when HP: TOS is broadcast as a 7-season mini-series, right? So we might as well prepare now.
