To be honest, I wasn't that torn up about the mess Studio Canal and chums made of Thunderbirds
was never my Thing; Stingray
was, and to a lesser extent Joe 90
. Hollywood messes with either of those, there's going to be trouble. Particularly if one of the Culkin spawn gets cast as Joe.Stingray
was the only Gerry Anderson show I actually saw as a small child, before I could notice that the storylines were incredibly hokey, the actors were on strings and the model shots had been filmed in a fishtank. So it's the one that has real magic for me as well as the ironic retro appeal of the ones I only caught in BBC2's suppertime slot as a teenager.
In spite of myself, though, I began idly wondering about a live-action Stingray
. Who to cast as the impossibly handsome Troy Tempest, and would he require Botox injections to keep one eyebrow in a state of permanent quirk?
So I asked our old friend Analogia
, the website that tells you which famous faces most resemble a photo you upload.Who is the Troyest of them all?( Collapse )
