I know about it, I'm just feeling a little conflicted. Sure it's great that the character is showing up for a wider audience, I'm happy that he's at least getting that attention. I never watched the show and I'm not sure about the actor they picked. Don't get me wrong I'm sure he's a good actor he just doesn't look like Rip. I wouldn't see a row of actors and guess he's our Time Master.
I admit I've always been a little picky with live action depictions of superheroes and don't agree even when people fan cast. For example I don't think Owen Wilson is right--at all--for Booster Gold despite what some people claim.
