Where's my geek hat?... ah there it is.

Welsh, although a lovely accent that I'm not debasing in anyway, couldn't be Carrot's accent. Copperhead, the mountain that Carrot's family mine under is very definitely in the Lancre region of the Ramtops, suggesting Carrot's accent would be Lancashire/Yorkshire. He'd have to be Llamedean to have a welsh accent.

But other than that, Rob's fine. :D

Carrot is from a mine 'under' Copperhead - we don't know how far it goes - maybe all the way to Llamedos. :P

How about John Henshaw from the Post Office ads to play Fred Colon?

Nah - too young! Fred is past retirement age and was certainly close to it in Guards! Guards!

I've always felt that Ben/Henry's actor from Lost would be perfect for Vetinari, at least in acting. His looks would have to be changed from "frog" to "scary", but he'd be brilliant.
I've always seen Vimes as Robert DeNiro or Al Pacino, even though they're probably too old.
The cover of Making Money looks a lot like him, just smiling and wearing gold.
Nobby has always been Vernes Troyer to me.
If not playing Vimes, Robert DeNiro could be Colon.
The Eragon dude should be Carrot, even if he isn't great. He has the looks.
I see Ridcully as an older version of me. He's the one character in the series that I'm 100% like. I'm aware that's not a compliment.
There will always be a light at the end of the tunnel. It will usually be a flamethrower.

Robert DeNiro has show He can play a funny part, in the Film StarDust He had me in Stitches when He got caught Dressed up as a Tranny...........so Ya if He were to put on a Fat Suit he could do the part.

The chap from Eragon would have to bulk up a bit though, I always thought of Carrot as a teen Arnold Schwarzenegger.....but without the German/Austrian accent. 8)

Have you ever seen Hercules in New York? It's Arnie's first movie and because of his accent, they dubbed a different voice to him. :lol:

Poor Arnie! He made it work for him though.

And yes, looking at John Henshaw, he looks exactly like Fred Colon :D
