I'd be a lamp-post (I have wooden acting abilities - I was compared on stage to the late great John Wayne - I made him look like a method actor)

How does one audition (still time for the other 30 or so novels to be filmed)?

Anyway, congrats!

WHAAAAAAAAAATTT???

THEY'RE MAKING AN ADAPTATION OF THE COLOUR OF MAGIC?

Oh, I'm jealous. (sulks)

I'm really annoyed that they haven't released Hogfather over here in Australia.... (sulks again)

Any idea who is playing Rincewind and Twoflower?

it's a merger of Colour of Magic and Light Fantastic. I believe David Jason is playing Rincewind, which is an interesting choice of casting. I applied by sending a few pictures of me in dire need of a shower to an e-mail address that was given to me, and they seemed to think I looked like the sort of scum you'd find in Ankh-Morpork (perhaps that diploma in acting helped as well), so they hired me. Hey Zebedee, try and look for me in the crowd. PM me a pic if you want so I have someone to recognise.

I meant me too as in "Im jealous as well", sorry Im not too coherent today!

Its a shame David Jason is playing Rincewind , I always saw Rincewind as more a Nigel Planer role.

ah, okay. I would've thought Mikenzie Crook (sic) would've done a good Rincewind. either way I think David Jason is very much fond of the Discworld series, as he says he wants to do as many of the book adaptations as he can.
