If this does go through I’ll be curious to see how he does. I really liked his portrayal of Howard Stark, and he certainly has charisma. But, and this is a dumb thing to fixate on: Jesse has blue eyes. It’s not a major plot detail, although there are moments where it’s mentioned, and I think some characters compare him to Elvis.
WE SHALL SEE. But lots of luck to Mr. Cooper if he does portray Jesse – those are some big boots and white jeans* to fill.
The OTHER news is that Lucy Griffiths, of BBC’S Robin Hood, will be cast as “Emily, a no-nonsense single mother.” That is a character invented for the show and I don’t know how I feel about that. I guess we shall see! I liked her in RH and she grew on me in Constantine for the little bit she was on the show. Good luck to her, too!
*Gotta have the white jeans. It’s a thing.
