Personally, i think either Jeremy would b good
I didn't like Jeremy. He looked fine but just didn't have any personality for me.
Mr sexy man Rickman for which part?? Rincewind? Sam Vimes? (surely he'd be too tall :wink:?)
jeremy irons looked perfect, but over acted a bit - too pantomime
twoflower by Sean Astin was good
David Jason was the best acting which made up for him not looking the part - just too old looking for me.
What about other parts?
Vimes? I saw a suggestion of Dennis Quaid once, and I can see it, grisly enough, right age. I don't imagine it would ever happen but...
Hmm, not bad. He's got the right degree of ugly.
Mmm never underestimate the pull of "ugly", Dennis Quaid as Vimes I like the idea!
what about moist?
its a tough one
I can see that. Although Paul Bettany is perhaps too distinctive looking. Gary Oldman might be good, because part of his ability to play any character is in his very non-descript face.
yeah, but maybe oldman is too much of an old man
aaron eckhart, from thank you for smoking. hes ind of bland and charming
whos is vetinari
:shock::sad:jeremy irons made a good one in the tv special
Jeremy Irons was brilliant in "The Coulour of Magic" and he's back in "Going postal". I am realy looking forward to finding out who is going to play Moist. The good thing with Irons is that he can keep a straght face easaly and I'm prity sure that Vimes or someone mensions about Vetinari being hard to read but I may be confused.
They are making Going Postal next? awesome choice.
lot's of characters to be cast then...
Paul Bettany (maybe he's too big a star)
Other suggestions were, James McAvoy (too famous), David Tennant (too annoying)
Michelle Gomez from Green Wing
LOL, I'm totally with you there...
MacKenzie Crook may be a little old for Stanley but I think he would be good choice.
Tennant is to well know and all the Doctor Who fans will be expecting him to do somthing Doctorish.
on the other hand - he's quite a big name at the moment and would bring in the crowds (of Dr Who nerds)
Yer but the thing is that I love him as the Doctor same with the person who plays Jack in Torchwood. I will always think of them as the Doctor and Jack from Doctor Who. Its hard to think of them in somthing else. I don't think David Tennent could pull Moist off well.
Were he still alive, I would gone for Jeremy Brett (the best Sherlock Holmes) but as it is, I think Alan Rickman would be perfect in the role of Vetinari.
For me it's got to be Alan Rickman as Vetinari - he just suits it perfectly and is a damn good actor too!
Saw a clip on YouTube of Jeremy Irons and absolutely hated it - how could he give him a speech impediment? That's just not Vetinari at all!
Also saw a clip of Charles Dance - difficult to tell with such a short clip but one thing which was screaming out at me was the fact his hair was his usual ginger. Vetinari's hair should always be black.
I love the suggestion of Philip Glenister as Vimes, I've never been able to decide on anyone who would suit that role until now but I reckon it could work.
I agree Alan Rickman would suit it well, or Richard E Grant would do a good job in the role too.
Wasn't keen on Charles Dance :sad:
