Hugh Grant is being lined up to star in the big-screen version of Dr. Who. If Hugh does win the film version, he reportedly wants to play the part in a similar style to Dr. Who legend Tom Baker, who was the fourth actor to play the time- travelling scientist in the cult British TV series. Filmmakers at the BBC TV network have already been in contact with Grant about the possibility of playing the Time Lord. Other actors who have previously been tipped for the part include Sean Connery, Sylvester Stallone, John Cleese and Stephen Fry.
