Homebaked Shakespeare

At the annual Shakespeare Association of America conference next month, I'll be presenting a paper about the awesome comic series Kill Shakespeare. It's many genius things rolled up in one, plus it's also a mash-up of good vs. bad Shakespeare characters.

By the way, the Kill Shakespeare people have also created the coolest T-shirt in the world (above), which you can buy off their site.

Might there be a Kill Shakespeare movie in the works? I realize that some of my fellow Shakespeare scholars might cover their ears and scream in response to such an idea. Well, you people are waaaaaaaaaay too uptight, you know that?

Anyhoo, not that anyone asked, but I went ahead and Homebaked my casting choices for a Kill Shakespeare film.


Hamlet: Vin Diesel
Juliet: Megan Fox
Romeo: Jet Li
Othello: Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson
Falstaff: Hulk Hogan


Richard III: Arnold Schwarzenegger
Lady Macbeth: Angelina Jolie
Weird Sisters: Matt Damon, Daniel Craig, and Zach Galifianakis/Jonah Hill*
Iago: Bruce Willis

*It's Shakespeare, so it's more than OK to cross-dress

Do you see my vision here?
