Who to play Vetinari next?

Postby Trollslayer » Wed Sep 29, 2010 8:58 pm

I'm sure this kind of things gets talked about but I've had an idea.
Stephen Fry - watch when he is being serious, the part he played in Bones etc.
Charles Dance was good but tried a little hard at times.

Welcome Trollslayer :D

If he was still alive Niccolò Machiavelli :wink:
Sadly he died in 1527
A poster outside one shop urged people to Dig For Victory, as if it were some kind of turnip.

Velcome Trollslayer. For me Charles Dance is the best, but I vould like maybe Terence Stamp at a pinch, Stephen Fry is too 'bulky' as I see Ventinari as slim, even thin. You need somevone who is tall, aristocratic and can be both nice und nasty at the same time, IMPO. Jugula

If not cast as Rincewind, I think David Thewlis would make a good Vetinari.

I reckon Hugh Laurie would make an excellent Rincewind with Alan Rickman playing Vetinari. (or maybe the other war 'round :wink: )
The difference between fiction and reality? Fiction has to make sense.

Ooooh. Alan Rickman would be a great Vetanari.

Pass on Hugh Laurie, but yes to Alan Tickman as Vetinari, except I vould rather see him as total baddie - tho can't think of a suitable bad guy for Rickman to play. Oh, maybe that nut - damn can't think of the story!! :oops:

Great idea! :D I'd love that! I like Allan Rickman, he really'd make a good Vetinari (although I still think that Charles Dance was perfect...)
