Online Petition to get Rupert Grint as the 12th Doctor!

RupertNewsIconJune 6th, 2013, 2:28pm– We are all waiting eagerly for Rupert Grint‘s next project to be announced. And while we wait, we have decided to start an online petition to get Rupert the role as the next Doctor in the iconic show Doctor Who.

Matt Smith has just announced that he is leaving the show at the end of this season, and this means that the creators are looking for the right actor to become the 12th doctor. Several articles have appeared mentioning Rupert as one of the front-runners to take over after Matt Smith.

Our petition is just a fun way for all the fans to show their support and have their voices heard. But who knows? If this petition gets a lot of signatures, it might get noticed by some people who have say in this decision. So SIGN the petition and SPREAD the word – we want as many names as possible on this list.

Haha. That is awesome!

I never watched Dr. Who, but if Rupert was the doctor, I’d watch every minute of it. :D

The other thing I wouldn’t like about him getting the role of Doctor Who is that I would feel like I had to watch all the previous episodes to understand what the show really is about, because I have no clue. But other than that, of course! I think it would be amazing if Rupert got that role which is so iconic in the British culture :) I understand Doctor Who is like a national hero there in the UK! :D

I have not a clue how British TV works and how they cast actors but if they want more people to tune in and increase the marketability of Dr Who overseas then they should go with Rupert. I’m not from the UK and though I’m familiar with Dr Who I’ve never had the motivation to watch it. But if it’s Rupert then I am going to absolutely tune in.

I have seen a total of one Dr. Who episodes on BBC America, but if they cast Rupert, it will become my new favorite show!

YES he would make a wonderful 12th (or possible 13th if they’d like us believe the forgotton one) Doctor. A GINGER! He is a good combo of David T and Matt S. We’d be lucky to get him!!

I would absolutely love Rupert Grint as the 12th Doctor. People frustrate me when they say he’s too young; he’s not too much younger than Matt Smith was when he took over from David Tennant. Rupert is a versatile actor, capable of doing what he has to to fit the roles he’s in. I believe in him 100%. Plus this would be the perfect oppurtunity for him to show everybody that he’s more than “that ginger kid” from Harry Potter. He could prove all his haters wrong :)

PLUS I’m just learning about his tv show “Super Clyde” being cancelled? Everything happens for a reason; when a door closes, a window opens… so maybe “Super Clyde” failed because he’s destined to something even better *coughDoctorWhocough*

I think Rupert would be a great Doctor – he has the right amount of quirkiness, humor and gravitas to pull it off. Unfortunately, I thinks its unlikely he will be chosen – he is just too identified with Harry Potter and they seem to choose actors that are much lower profile. I would love to be proven wrong though.

It would be interesting to see who actually gets the role in the end. If they want to continue to break into the US market as well as other countries, Rupert would be the way to go.

Maybe we should tweet the petition to Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss- the producer/writer and producer- to let them know that we want Rupert!

Rupert is an international superstar and everyone knows him. it will definitely help publicize the program. so he is an intelligent choice and people like me who have followed harry potter and absolutely love rupert, will definitely watch the show
