The Walrus Casting Terry Pratchett films (119* d) RE: Casting Terry Pratchett films 15 Nov 07

Wyrd Sister,

I like the idea of Paul Gross (Benton Fraser) as Carrot (so, does that mean the dog 'playing' Deifebaker as Angua in Wolf form?)
Richard Bridge,

I agree, David Jason is too old for Rincewind, the actor needs to be young and thin (he does spend his life running from everything).

Pete Postletwaite as Colon? Oh No, he's totally the wrong shape. Colon is a middle aged man run to fat (at one point it is said that he fits his breasplate as a jelly fits a mould), perhaps William Simmons (Alf Ventress, the fat desk sergeant in 'Heartbeat' on TV) would be a better choice.

I think Billie Piper too young for Rosie Palm (except, maybe in Night Watch), I think Siobhan Redmond [(Midwife in "Mary Shelley's Frankenstein"(1994), Kate Higgins in "Beautiful People" (1999)], might, IMHO, be a more suitable choice.
