Help! I'm stuck in the forums!
Your Favorite Characters - who could play them?

Someone posted a mention of certain known actors playing roles from novels. It made me think a bit. If you were going to film your favorite book (or one of them if you can't choose), who would play the main characters? I'll start with the Discworld (since that was the subject of the original post that got me thinking, and the other book I'd like to do hasn't been read by most of you so you probably wouldn't be able to follow my thinking).

I'll just do a few and maybe some other Pratchett fans can add on as there are so many characters.

Nanny Ogg - Geena Davis - I could see her with the cheeky attitude and leering at all the men
Granny Weatherwax - Betty White - she could pull off that 'cranky know-it-all' attitude well (although I'd probably do better :D)
Angua (werewolf Guard) - Sandra Bullock - shy but attractive and self confident, she could definitely make this a great role

Hah...I must say that I have thought about this somewhat. I try to view the scenes as a film and write from that. And I like choosing actors to fit with my characters. Nothing much to share...yet.:p

One of them is actually a very obvious choice Sarah Michelle Gellar as Laurell K Hamilton's Anita Blake the vampire executioner.

I know it is type casting, but she just has all the right qualities for Anita Blake's character....:D
From height to attractiveness.

Eliza Dushku would be interesting, but I decided that she exudes too much of the come hither aura. I'd much rather she played a vampire...lol

For Druss the Legend from David Gemmell's Legend I think Jerome Flynn.
He has the right weatherworn and battered look as well as the physical presence. I can believe he had seen one-battle-too-many.
