While the BBC kept its word and no official announcement has been made, the British newspaper The Telegraph is reporting that Rory Kinnear has been offered the role of Doctor Who. Reportedly, it is unknown if Kinnear will accept the role of the 12th Time Lord, as the BBC is waiting on his answer.
Rory Kinnear is best known for playing Bill Tanner in Skyfall and Quantum of Solace. Rory Kinnear had been previously rumored to be up for the Doctor Who role, but Kinnear denied ever even having watched the show before.
In a little bit of interesting Batman related trivia, Kinnear attended the same London school as The Dark Knight Rises star Tom Hardy, who played Bane.
