    That sounds dreadful to me. I thought Charles Dance was about the right amount of evil and officious without being a pantomime baddy.

    Nanny Ogg possibly Patsy Byrne or Myriam Margolis.

    Maggie Smith as Granny Weatherwax. Maybe a little old now though.

    The obvious one would be David Jason (as Del Boy) as CMOT Dibbler.

    Rickman is Lord Downey (head of the assassins guild)

    Not an actress but when I think of lady Sybil, Claire Balding is exactly who goes through my head.

    Mickey Rourke as Cohen.

    Ridcully should have been Alastair Sim.

    Gene Wilder would have been a great Rincewind, Stephen Mangan might be a good one now.

    Miles Jupp as Ponder.

    Bob Mortimer as Moist.

    Brian blessed as Ridcully.

    We’re just watching the colour of magic, I think Jeremy irons is spot on as vetanari.

    Ian Richardson as Death

    As long as I can have Tim Brooke-Taylor as Drumknott?

    David Jason would be a good Vimes, I reckon.

    I was thinking Prince Harry as Carrot
    Bruce Willis as Vimes

    Paddy Considine as Vimes?

    Always seen Vetinari as bit Ian Richardson, tbh.

    I would have liked to cast Karl Urban as Carrot. Think he may be getting a little old for it, sadly.

    Sally Phillips as Magrat?
    Was thinking Jane Horrocks, but she’s a bit short.

    Les Dawson as Nanny Ogg, obviously.

    Paul McShane as Fred.

    Michael Bentine as Otto.

    Paddy Considine as Vimes?

    Christ, Where’s My Cow would be bloody terrifying.

    David Jason would be a good Vimes, I reckon.

    Vimes the hardened, unreformed, former alcoholic bubbling under with unknowable rage, constantlyrunning from his demons and capable of incredible physical aggression – David bloody Jason?

    Moist Von Lipwig – Daniel Craig

    The Librarian – Andy Serkis

    And finally
    Daft Wullie – (Feegle) – Jimmy Krankie

    A younger Gene Hackman could be my Vimes

    I have created my own personas for all his characters the voices what they look like etc, find it really difficult to put real people into them

    Sean bean is a great suggestion for vimes.

    William d’word?
    Harry king?
    Leonard of quirm?

    Actually, we could have Foxy Coxy as Ponder.

    I reckon Dara O’Briain would make a good librarian.

    Magrat – Judy Greer.

    Dudley Moore as Rincewind

    Simon pegg as rincewind.

    I had him pencilled in for Pteppic. And Natalie Portman as Ptraci

    Irons was spot on for Vetinari but I’ve always pictured Rincewind as the guy who used to play Catweazle, Geoffrey Bayldon.

    I’ve got Gary Oldman in my head as Vimes or Carcer.

    David Jason might have been Albert, but not Vimes.

    I can see him as Carcer, no question.
