The Welsh Mexican community frowns on these shenanigans.

The event is free and refreshments will be provided.

I hope there's a sign-up sheet for the sex offender's registry on the way in.

I hardly new her.

Gotta say ... the cast from the SkyTV Hogfather production seems to fit what I had in my head about quite a few of the characters...

I've also been reading the fanfics by AA Pessimal on fanfiction.net - and for Johanna Smith-Rhodes I keep thinking of Lucy O'Hara...

Yay!

Granny Weatherwax:  Maggie Smith

Mr. Slant: Crispin Glover

Rincewind: This is the tough one.  I keep picturing him like Jay Baruchel, but I'm not sure on that one.  Maybe Johnny Depp, but I'm afraid that will go just as wrong.  Martin Freeman does the whole flustered/bewildered bit, but...    Maybe Russell Tovey?  (UK Being Human, the Hound of the Baskervilles episode of Sherlock)

Self-replying because I just realized how much Arthur Darvill (Doctor Who, Legends of Tomorrow) looks like Rincewind is drawn.  He might be up to the task.

Rincewind should be played by David Jason.

I know this because Sir pTerry said so when the beeb made The Colour of Magic

@ReverendLoki: Maggie Smith as Granny Weatherwax is GENIUS.

BRIAN BLESSED

This was Vetinari for Going Postal.  Your argument is invalid.

Dammit!  Just reread your post and saw him as your 2nd.  Sorry.  He should be 1st though

Absolutely right for Nobby!

The wife and I think Gilbert Gottfried would do justice as C. M. O. T. Dibbler.  ;-)

And whilst I'm here, Charles Dance be damned - Alan Rickman was Vetinari personified.

Oh, and nice to see the headline was fixed. Thanks, admin.

DNRTFA, just commenting on Discworld casting.

Aren't books wonderful?  All but two of your (collective) casting choices are hilariously awful, based on my own headcanon.

/Don't have any better suggestions though.
 
2017-04-20 10:37:30 PM  
I always pictured Jeremy Irons as Vetinari.
