Does anyone else think that Noel Fielding would make a great Jim Pooley? I bet he would love to do it as well, Rankin is definitely in his sort of line.

And a special thanks to the ebayer who was selling 16 Rankin paperbacks on ebay for collection only, and when I contacted them asking if I could arrange a courier, not only did they sort out a delivery but also closed the auction then and there so I didn't have to bid. What a star, huge props to "martinsetal" if you ever read this.

Fielding is a possibility but would have to devolop a convincing Dublin accent to cover his London accent innit it mush. :lol:

I think you misread my post :) at least, I always assumed Pooley was English as it's only Omally who is always portrayed as Irish.

I would like to see the Irish actor from Shameless play Omally, would be good to see him in a comedy role. And for Hugo Rune, how about Robert Rankin himself?

David Warner played Hugo Rune in the radio version of the Brightonomicon, and his voice was perfect.

Sadly, great actor that he is, he's really not the right shape for a visual Hugo!!

Pooley is definitely English, and Omally is from Dublin.

Pooley is based on the Robster himself, and his Dad I think came from Dublin.

Hmmm. I wonder if Robert Rankin twists round in circles and flaps his hands when he's in a panic? ;)

Not that I noticed Bouncy he is quite laid back, and he certainly was last weekend as he was tom & mick.
