In this morning’s Metro newspaper, actor Sean Bean, better known for his hard-man roles in Golden Eye, Game of Thrones and Lord of the Rings expressed his interest in musicals!
When asked, “Is there anything else you haven’t done you fancy doing?”, Bean replied, “Maybe a musical. I’m not bad at singing – at least in the shower.”
This got us thinking! What West End musicals could you see Sean Bean in that are playing now?
We Will Rock You? He has a rocker look, and is probably used to wearing wigs by now (Game of Thrones and Lord Of The Rings!), we’re sure! We’re not sure if he could pull off the high notes in Bohemian Rhapsody though!
Wizard of Oz? If he wants to break his ‘baddie’ image from previous role in James Bond, we reckon playing the cowardly lion in the Wizard of Oz would be a good way to show his softer side!
Les Miserables? He would make a great Jean Valjean, don’t you think? He has the strong masculine presence, and a ‘rough around the edges’ image, perfect for the role.
Shrek The Musical? Sean as Shrek would be brilliant! He has the booming voice and scary presence to play the ogre, definitely! Playing a great, green giant would definitely challenge him as an actor!
Any thoughts of other roles Sean Bean could play? The funnier the better!
