William Jackson Harper as Reed Richards

A rumor dropped the other day that casting for the MCU Fantastic Four movie included Kristen Bell as Sue Storm, which isn’t a terrible idea but it got me thinking… wait, wouldn’t her Good Place co-star William Jackson Harper be absolutely FANTASTIC (pun intended) as Reed Richards?

I was thrilled with this idea and wanted a medal immediately. But actually it turns out this is a very, very popular casting choice! Well, excellent. Here, have a bunch of pictures where Harper looks particular Reed-esque (not all of them are of Chidi):
