While I had three other MCU-verse fic that were in the lead for getting done, Zola and Acantha suddenly raced their way to the front of the line. Typical. The fic is a loose sequel to "Become Death, Destroyer of Worlds" and it only confirmed for me that I really like Zola. Not as a person, obviously. He's horrible and deserves a special seat in Hell. But he's so much fun to write. Especially in the daemon-verse. I think it helps that I thought he was well played by Toby Jones. Zola could have easily just been a stock evil scientist but the little expressions Jones throws in (that sliiiiight smirk he has on his face when Phillips informs him Bucky is dead after the train sequence is now 100x more awful) throughout elevate him well above what Red Skull ended up being.
Anyway, in between writing this fic, I flipped through Jones' filmography. He's done a lot of work, not surprisingly. But the range of what he's done is a little surprising. For instance, I didn't know he was the voice of Dobby in the Harry Potter films.
I also saw that I'd seen a lot of his work without really knowing it. So I decided to do that actor meme again for him.( Toby Jones: ActorCollapse )
