    John Thaw would have made a great Albert.
    Or a cracking Vimes.

    Penelope Keith as Weatherwax.

    I thought this would be about commissioning a bronze hat & beard?

    Is there a statue and a place to pay homage? Bloody should be.

    I have never read any Pratchett. SO I have no idea whether these are good suggestions or not.
    There. I’ve said it.
    Imaginative fellow by all accounts. But I was more a Len Deighton man in my yoof…

    Stoner, try Thud. Excellent crime novel, that just happens to be in the Discworld.

    I’d always thought Eric Idle would make a perfect Rincewind.

    Good call whoever said Andy Serkis for the Librarian.

    Ian Richardson for Death, obviously ( or perhaps Christopher Lee) just not sure who would play Binky though 😉

    And while we are all casting, might I nominate Terry Gilliam to Direct…

    That was me but good call back for Eric as Rincewind, perfect casting

    Albert should be an old surly ****. David Bradley?

    Robert Carlyle as Wee Mad Arthur – he’s basically a 6″ Begbie.

    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?

    Superb.

    You’re all wrong! It needs to be kept inside your heads not “acted” out by luvvvies. Worst thing about Pratchett books were the covers, I used to try desperately not to look at them! And as for the bloody tv stuff…

    Whilst the Josh Kirby ones are a bit dated (though i still like them) – the Paul Kidby ones are ace!

    Andre the Giant basically was Detritus.

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

    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 Nobs

    I always had Ray Winston down as Vimes and Robert Carlyle as Vetinari

    And when reading Going Postal I pictured David Tennant as Moist von Lipwig, but after reading Steam I’m not so sure.

    Could work though, with a bit of imagination.

    Nanny: Liza Tarbuk

    No.

    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.

    Viggo Mortensen is Vimes, the juxtaposition from the LotR is classic!

    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)

    No.

    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 Rincewind
    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.

    Except Vimes, he’s Ken Stott in good shape

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

    Agree with that, that’s kind of why I thought of Ray Winston, but Stott is a good option.
