Okay, this time my random playlist nearly killed me...
At the other thread it was already bad with jumping to an mp3 of CSI: Miami oneliners... but this time it jumped from the one liners to The Who's 'The bargain'

Thanks a lot trekstore >_> *glares at her mp3 player* now I'll always imagine a watch-styled csi-opening to that song

I'm not particularly excited about this; Carrot'll be in it, and I always find that characters are much better in my imagination than in films. I don't to lose my image of Carrot.

If John Levene was as young as he was when he did Doctor Who, I would think that he would make an excellent Carrot.

Nowadays...I cannot think of an actor offhand. Hugh Jackman's not beefy enough, and Christian Bale isn't quite clean enough.

Eric Bana, perhaps?

EDIT: This is weird. My post has been posted, but it's not showing in the latest posts for this forum from the main forum... :?

My point was that I've never seen Carrot in a film before, and I don't think he's been in one. I think that my imagination of Carrot is much better than an actual Carrot could ever be, and I think a film could ruin that.

I think he means the image he has in his head. :)

That's what I think as well. I don't think every fan will be happy with whatever the choice.

I don't think the problem is the looks. Just in the books the characters are so vivid. If the actor is superficial, then the charm of his character is lost.
