It seems I very much have got to go back and read Phillip Pullman's original His Dark Materials trilogy of books now, because Andrew "Hot Priest" Scott just got cast in the forthcoming HBO miniseries adaptation as a character I can't recall in the slightest, not even after reading the full Wiki entry for him. I mean I know he is playing John Parry aka Jopari, the father of Will, the lead character of the second book The Subtle Knife. And it sounds like... well, he's got his hands in a lot. It's all spoilery so I don't want to dive into specifics -- it's just been a good 15 years since I re-read the trilogy so it's overdue, clearly, is my point. But hurray for Andrew Scott! Always and always Andrew Scott. Click here if you haven't seen the trailer for the HBO adaptation.
