Simon Pegg? REALLY? Good god, no. :cry:
Some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them.

The rest of us are a bit crap.

Hugh Laurie might be alright though.

These sort of discussions often cause disbelief. I once thought someone was joking when they suggested Will Smith to play Nobby Nobbs. This was on another site. It turned out they were dead serious and they got annoyed with me for thinking their idea was stupid. :lol:

I could play Vimes. Failing that, what about Jack Dee?

Maybe they meant Mel Smith? :?

Not sure about Jack Dee. Sufficiently cynical, but not sufficently "worn".

OK, I like this guy, Toby Stephens.

I like Paul Kaye as well, but IMDB didn't have a recent pic.

Toby Stephens would be GREAT. He is so oooh, and I quite like Vimes as I may have put in another thread somewhere, but I don't care.. You need someone witha bit rugged been up all night look to them.

He would do. He's less handsome, which is probably more appropriate... but Toby looks a bit like Clint Eastwood, which reminds me of the Paul Kidby illustrations.

Sean Pertwee rocked in Dog Soldiers though, which goes a long way in my book.

Am I the only one who doesn't know what anyone is talking about? What is the role in? A TV programme? A film?

I think people are just idly speculating who could play their ideal Vimes if there was ever a movie made with his character in. :D

Like the look of Toby Stephens for Vimes defo, but not Paul Kaye.

He looks like he could pull off the Clint Eastwood look to please Joolz too.
