Since the making of the Hogfather and The Colour of Magic, I started thinking of the perfect actors to play my favourite characters...

I really think Ewan McGregor would be a brilliant Moist von Lipwig!He'd have to change his accent a little though.... being from Uberwald....... but I suppose he's not supposed to have a very obvious accent anyway so he can blend in to the crowd....

anyway thats only my choice, what does everyone else think?

:laugh:

Hi Laura and welcome to the site. :laugh:

The only problem with Ewan McGregor playing Moist is that we know that Moist is supposed to be nondescript and forgettable. Do you really think that Ewan fits that category? ;)

Hello, Laura! Welcome!

I guess Evan would do the job quite good, but I think neither of them could really be Moist. Don't know who could, really.

I'll just wait and see, when Going Postal comes out. They usually have a very good cast.

yeah see i had a conversation about this just earlier... is Ewan too good looking to be Moist?

oddly the guys opinion was yes, whereas i said no... ;) (we were watching star wars at the time....)

peter andre was a joke! ;)

okay we just came back from the hangover and we thing the guy who plays doug(the guy who's getting married)would be good...

OK, I've received official confirmation of who will play Moist but I am waiting confirmation that this information is generally available to the public.

There are some interesting casting choices of some quite well know actors.

As soon as I get the go ahead I will let you know.

Ok, here is is then. I've been given permission:

The latest cast list is as follows:

Richard Coyle – Moist Von Lipwig
David Suchet – Reacher Gilt
Charles Dance – Lord Vetinari
Claire Foy – Adora Belle Dearheart
Andrew Sachs – Tolliver Groat
Tamsin Greig – Miss Cripslock
Steve Pemberton – Rufus Drumknott
John Henshaw – Mr Pony
Madhav Sharma – Horsefry
Jimmy Yuill – Mr Spools
Ian Bonar – Stanley
Paul Barber – Dave
Adrian Schiller – Gryle
Daniel Cerquiera – Trooper
Ingrid BolsØ Berdal – Sergeant Angua
Kerry Shale – Mr Pump (voice)
Ben Crompton – Mad Al
Asif Khan – Sane Alex
Alex Parks – Roger
Sheila Shand Ginns – Old Lady


Note change of Vetinari - Charles Dance rather than Jeremy Irons.

A photo of Moist and a drawing of a Mountain Clacks tower can be seen at:

I agree. Charles Dance is a good choice, but he will need black hair.

They'll start filming it next year, April I think. They wanted to start it May this year, but got delayed. I suppose, they don't know it themselves.

I've read it somewhere, but maybe it's just rumours. I've just been looking on wikipedia and they wrote, filming started already. I'm a little confused now. o_O

All I know is that they'll show it on sky1 next year, not until autumn I guess.
