Ged from A Wizard of Earthsea - Bobb'e J. Thompson

Few young African-American actors have the quality of comedic timing of Bobb'e J. Thompson, who is just awesome as Tracy's son on 30 Rock and alongside Paul Rudd in Role Models. Countless comedians have made the transition to drama very well, and we can definitely see Bobb'e as Ged, one of the most memorable  black characters in fantasy fiction. A Wizard of Earthsea is an absolute classic and we're desperate to see it in movie form!
