Last night’s Nerd Nation podcast contained the words ‘Bleeding’ and ‘Cool’ quite a few times over. Here’s a slightly abridged transcript of what went down from around the nine minutes and thirty five second mark, with apologies to the Nerds for their impersonal numbering.
Nerd One: This may be something that gets us on Bleeding Cool again.
Nerd Two: Oh boy.
Nerd One: So, X-Men: Days of Future Past. It’s coming out next summer. I am so excited about it and I… there is an actor who has recently been added to the cast and everybody is speculating about who he might be. His name is Omar Sy. Have ou seen this news at all?
Nerd Two: Unfortunately I saw it on Bleeding Cool
Nerd One: Now, I don’t have any concrete evidence of this but I am 99.9% sure… I am going to tell you right now, and like I said I have no real confirmation but I am almost positive that he is playing the time traveller known as Bishop.
Nerd Two: In order to get it on Bleeding Cool you will have to say, “I know this because of unnamed sources” otherwise he won’t go with it.
Nerd One: I know this from sources I cannot name… it’s pretty clear to me he is playing Bishop and that’s all I say about that. It’s a 99.9 guess…not guess. I… I can’t say why.
Nerd Two: Let me translate this… damn it, how can we word this?
Nerd One: I can’t say this without… I don’t want to get anyone in trouble at all so let’s leave it there. You heard it on Nerd Nation and whether you believe it or not, Omar Sy, I’m just going to make an educated guess that he’splaying Bishop… I’m telling you it’s news, I swear to you.
I think I prefer Nerd One for some reason. Not sure why…
Now, listening to that, did anybody else think of this clip from Brass Eye?
Well, it’s nice to be thought of like this in any case. Is Omar Sy going to be playing Bishop? Time will tell. It sounds an awful lot like Nerd One believes it, though. Is that good enough for you?
