- Let's cast Pratchett
I feel like Simon Pegg should be in this film but I can’t decide on who he should play.
My choice for Vimes would be Liam Neeson I think although I’m not entirely convinced I’m right on that one.
Vetinari would be Leo DiCaprio when he’s a bit older or maybe Christoph Waltz?Posted 4 years agoz1ppyMember

Les Dawson as Nanny Ogg
it is, but I can’t reconcile it with a younger ‘homely’ and predatory Miss Ogg.

You’re all wrong! It needs to be kept inside your heads not “acted” out by luvvvies…. And as for the bloody tv stuff…
TBH +1, enjoyed the TV stuff but the actor/charaters weren’t right for me and there is definitely no one (well no one mentioned on this thread) who could play Nobby NobsPosted 4 years agosquirrelkingMember
Nanny: Liza Tarbuk
Brendan Gleeson for Colon?
Jeremy Irons as Vetinari (again)
Brian Blessed as Ridcully (seconded)
Maggie Smith as Granny Weatherwax (possible seconding?)
Simon Pegg as Rincewind
Rest I have no idea of.
cb – it’s a bit of fun, chill. Agree the TV series wasn’t cast right but then I suppose we all have different pictures of the characters in our heads.Posted 4 years agoNorthwindSubscriber
They all look like they do in my head, not like actors, so none of the casting works out. Except Vimes, he’s Ken Stott in good shape (disclaimer- it’s entirely possible none of the character descriptions are like that at all. Doesn’t matter) . So is Rebus for that matter.
(except Rincewind, I’ve never know why but for some reason I always visualise him as a big triangle, sort of like Wizbit)Posted 4 years agodavid jeyMember

Maybe more Agnes/Perdita Nitt? Or perhaps Caitlin Moran for that.
For wizards, and following on from Brian Blessed for Ridcully, just use the entire male supporting case of Blackadder reserving Rowan Atkinson for Vetinari:
Tony Robinson as RincewindPosted 4 years ago
Stephen Fry as the Dean
Hugh Laurie as the Bursar
Tim McInnerny as the Senior Wrangler
etc…They’ve all aged by about the right amount too.

Steve Buscemi, possibly. Though yes, probably not.

Yes, that’s more like how I picture him – all the other suggestions are too “action hero”.Posted 4 years ago
