who would you want to be cast as His Grace, Sir Samuel Vimes, Duke of Ankh, Commander of the Ankh-Morpork City Watch IF they make a movie about a City watch book?

Someone who can pull it off and in a way looks the part.

Why do some people believe these roles always have to be filled with Hollywood actors?

Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well-preserved body. But rather to skid in sideways, naked, drunk and on fire screaming YEEHAAW ! . . . .

I always picture Robert Downey Jr as Sam Vimes. Having seen him play Sherlock, I'm convinced there could be no other!

On second thought, I wouldn't be too put off to see Hugh Laurie as Sam, although he is a bit lankier than I see Vimes in my imagination.

How about Carrot? Any nominations?

Sean bean for sam vimes.
for carrot, if he had been a bit younger......Damian lewis....http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0507073/
The character he played in band of brothers col winters was a quaker/t-totaller amongst all the other guys in the army and reminds me very much of carrot.
just looking touch too old nowadays.

All good choices for Sam. But for some reason, as I read the books, I see Steve Carrell as Sam. Didn't happen until I read the part about Sam (literally) running home to be in time to read Sam Jr. his bedtime story, then Carrell just popped up. lol
