Keira Knightley and Benedict Cumberbatch's Richard III

I read a little piece of news recently about Keira Knightley and Benedict Cumberbatch.

It seems that Benedict defended Keira's honor, and punched the arm of a film critic for insulting her acting.

How chivalrous!

I am very pleased to know that a) there are still gentlemen in this world and b) that it is possible to punch a film critic without being sued and/or arrested!

But seriously, I have an idea. 

If Benedict really wants to do something nice for her, the least he could do is beg her to co-star with him in his Richard III for the Hollow Crown series.

I think she would be fantastic as Lady Anne, whom Richard III woos and wins -- over the dead body of her father-in-law the dead King Henry VI,  and despite the fact that he killed her husband and King Henry!

It's a fantastic scene, and one of the best moments in any Shakespeare play.

We haven't seen Keira in any Shakespeare, and what better way to start than performing this role opposite Benedict?

What do you think?
