He is capable of playing every role. From a villain to a scientist, a hero.
I first him in the Knights Tale, he has played a villain so good that I hate him. And a hero in Eleventh hour and now I love him. He fits the role of Hood very good. His mimics, his looks, his sense of humor. Also I love his voice. Actually it is the reason why I first start watching Eleventh Hour.
I believe that he will improve the Hood character in the next season by the help of writers and hopefully we can see more feelings for Rachel.
