Not sure about Shakespeare, but I know Ben Jonson failed the dope test and, 
shamed, will have no role at all.

Dear Duncan

I'd suggest that you contact Ian Flintoff through www.shakespeare2012.co.uk to 
discuss your ideas. Ian is leading a project to ensure that Shakespeare features 
in the Cultural Olympiad at London 2012.

Best wishes,
Ben

Heaven forbid!

Maybe we need to find someone fast enough to put a girdle round the earth in 40 
mins!

Cheers,

Rumour says that there is to be a Cultural Olympics [sic] for the 2012 Olympics 
and that the RSC will be one of the leading participants in the event.

I look forward to the judging controversies and the disqualifications...
