Warren Clarke would be a good fit, but hasn't he already played a copper ? That might put the director off selecting him.
One for the Pratchettians here....
Vimes- Brendan Gleeson
Nobby- John Thomson
Carrot- Brendon fraser
Colon- Tony Slattery
Lady Sybil- Emma Thomson
Is it me, or does the phrase 'based on' instil a slight dread?
Stick to the source material, it's quality.
SNAP. Exactly, absolutely, right. RIP Pete.
Bar the accent and being too tall, Clint Eastwood could do a good Vimes.
Carrot? Vin Diesel or similar?
David Jason would be a Nobby or a Colon.
Vinnie Jones as Detritus.
Can't think of a suitable Angua at the mo. Catherine Zeta Jones with a dye job?
Vimes- Warren Clarke
Angua - Beatrice Dalle
Lady Sybil - Emma Thomson
No to David Jason completely
Jeez, David Jason has done enough on the Discworld.
Pete Postlethwaite would have been amazing as Vimes.
Going Postal had:
Ingrid Bolsø Berdal ... Sergeant Angua
Kris Marshall could be an irritatingly shiny Captain Carrot.
Hah, Robert Linsay as Vimes, stretch him from his sitcom stasis. Trevor Eve may have the build but probably not interested in copper work.
Vimes - Warren Clarke or maybe....Jason Isaacs
Angua - Kate Beckinsale
Lady Sybil - Dawn French
Carrot - ???
Nobby Nobs - Andy Serkis
Colon - Philip Glenister or Timothy Spall
I'm liking Warren Clarke for Vimes..
Ben Fogle or Prince Harry for Carrot..
Do you know i thought about Ben Fogle too........but was afraid of the pi$% taking.
slimtubing, +1 on the brendan fraser for carrot, he was always the person i pictured when reading the books. plus he's got plenty of practice in at the affable, naive type character.
Mickey Rourke for Detritus.
Peter Kay / Nick Frost as Colon.
Mark Heap as the Patrician.
Harrison Ford for Vimes?? Only if he did it properly though. Mark Heap might be good in there too... but not as both.
Mark Heap as the Patrician.
Peewee Herman for Patrician..
Philip Glenister +1
I'm not sure about Rickman, something like Anthony Hopkins as Lecter would be much better. Rickman panto's it up too much.
I think they only let David Jason do the others because they couldn't believe he wanted to. He was better as DEATH's sidekick than as Rincewind.
Is it the one where the assasins get the "gonne"
Who would be head of the assasins??
I always thought of Vimes as being physicaly unremarkable which is why everyone underestimates him....... at the start
Head of Assasins.....Sting
I didn't like David Jason as Rincewind either. Made too much of a pantomime of it.
Give this a thought before you scoff... Michael Gambon for Vimes?
I did initially thing Daniel Craig, but you'd have to age him up a bit.
Alice Roberts for Angua!
AFAIK Sam Vimes was modeled on Clint Eastwood as Dirty Harry. So I say Hugh Jackman.
Kate Beckinsale for Sgt Angua, FTW
Nick Frost as Sgt Colon
Charles Dance for Vetinari?
