    Bernard Cribbins..?

    slightly more leftfield.. I could see Justin Lee Collins as a young Vimes..

    or maybe Tim Healy for a nahtharn Vimes.. or John Thaw..

    David Jason, he’d be a good Vimes I reckon,

    They’re making a TV series based on the Watch! Wooo!

    Now, who to play Vimes?

    I had Penelope Keith slated for Lady Sybil, but fear she may a little old now.

    Not sure about David Jason – I’ve always thought of Vimes of being a thinking man’s brick shithouse – the part needs someone with a pair of hands that could knock you into next week.

    Good point Cranberry, Vimes as a character is a man who will use violence when it’s needed, he survived the ‘Lilac’ uprising when a young copper (nightwatch) and rose through the ranks to become Captain.
    Hmmm, can’t think of who would play him though, what sort of accent will he have?

    Fantastic! Bet it’s a sky thing though. Gorra linkie?

    Hmmm, thinking cap time. Lemme crack a beer and get back to you on this

    Didn’t he play Albert in the tv adaptation of Hogswatch? Whoever plays Vimes needs to look like they like a good drink or 2!

    Liam Neeson for Vimes?
    Shame Jim Broadbent’s getting on a bit, he’d have been perfect, as would Bob Peck.
    David Morrisey or Christopher Eccleston would also be pretty perfect for the role.
    I’ll have to have another think.

    Wonder who’ll play Angua?

    Tony Robinson would be a great Nobby, but perhaps a bit too obvious.

    Dibbler? Nobby? Angua?

    Actually I thought David Jason was a rubbish Rincewind.

    Eric Idle for Dibbler obviously!

    I always see the beggar from Life of Brian when I think of the character.

    Angua, that’s a tough one…

    Gotta be tall, lithe and have tawny hair…

    Wasn’t convinced about David Jason either. Daniel Craig for Carrot, Dougray Scott for Vimes?

    Night Watch is on R4, starting tomorrow eve

    Jason Statham as Vimes?!!

    He’s supposed to be intelligent!

    Kate Beckinsale for the win!!

    Is Daniel Craig tall enough? He’s called carrot ‘cos of his shape, not the colour of his hair.

    Skoolshoes you beat me to it 🙁

    Isn’t Vimes supposed to be an older chap a veteran not a young chiselled jawed type.

    I say again…..Warren Clarke

    Carrot – any former 2nd row rugby bods now acting?

    I’ve always rather fancied a stint at acting.

    I once had a PC game and Rincewind was in fact voiced by Eric Idle. I thought he suited it perfectly.

    He’s an actor. Maybe he could act intelligent?
    Or maybe he really is intelligent and excels at acting not so intelligent?

    Ok… Daniel Day Lewis.

    not been very impressed by the sky versions so far but it’d be great if done well

    so Jason statham is definitely out

    Vimes has to be Gary Oldman.

    Carrot, maybe Damian Lewis? Or Tom Hardy.

    Terry had one specific actor in mind when he first wrote Vimes. Sadly, he never got the chance to play him:

    the late, truly wonderful, and very much missed Pete Postletwaite.

    Philip Glenister??

    Warren Clarke would be a good fit, but hasn’t he already played a copper ? That might put the director off selecting him.

    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.

    Count Zero.

    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
