ah ok. well maybe I'll check it out. Thanks so much
I've always pictured Bill Nighy as Crowley. I think he'd be great.
|now available in colour!|
Please check it out, it is an amazing book (series of books) told in a matter of fact nonsensical way, i couldn;t put it down.
and with regards to filming line up I always though that it should be English actors alll the way, excluding Depp and Williams (sadly as both would be brilliant), but keep it in the family kind of
~credo quia absurdum est
I believe it because it is absurd~

Let us drink, for we must die~
Some thoughts on roles:
Crowley: John Cusack, Johnny Depp, or David Tennant
Aziraphale: Patrick Stewart or Colin Firth
Anathema: Christina Ricci?
Newton: Martin Freeman
Agnes: Dame Judi Dench
Hastur (The smaller one?): Steve Buscemi
Ligur (the larger one?): ... not sure
War: Angelina Jolie
Famine: Bill Nighy
Pollution: Mackenzie Crook
Death: Ian McKellan
Madame Tracy: Penelope Wilton
Shadwell: Paul Dillon?
Brother Francis: Mark Addy
The Metatron: Alan Rickman (tradition)
I am okay with some of the non-humans being non-British, but the principals should be natives. I do not see Robin Williams in here... sorry, I just don't. Love him as an actor, but no role for him here. Also, while I love Johnny Depp, he is my last choice for Crowley - too straight forward for him.
more to come...
Crowley - Definitely John Cusack.
Aziraphale - Yep, Colin Firth
The Metatron - LOL about the Alan Rickman tradition. Heh. Yep.
War - Yep, I don't see how it could be anyone other than Angelina.
Thou art so true that thoughts of thee suffice
To make dreams truths and fables histories...
okay, first of all, I heard that Hugh Laurie (w/ glasses) was going to be Aziraphale and Jake Gyllenhaal was going to be Crowley.
Also, from the later messages on the first page of the forum, I got the impression that Good Omens (the movie) already came out. Did I miss it?
I recently saw a trailer that said it was coming out summer 2009 (yay!) but I don't know if that was real or not... o.0 ?This message has been edited. Last edited by: Jazztrix Riddle,
also, in my head, Crowley looks like a younger Brad Pitt or Cary Elwes. And for Aziraphale Jack Davenport, Ioan Gruffudd, or Clive Robertson (all w/ glasses of course). Am I the only one that imagines Crowley as blonde?
I can totally see Depp as Crowley, but I think David Hyde Pierce (Niles on Fraiser) would be the perfect Aziraphale. Can't you just imagine his enlgish slightly gay fussy accent,lol!
I would LOOOVE to be in this movie if it ever got made, serious its like a dream of mine, its my fave book ever.
I feel really sad writing that. Ha.
Currently reading Good Omens and loving the feature film that is playing in my mind! I've read that Johnny Depp was considered for Crowley at one time but he keeps morphing into Ricky Gervais. Also saw people throwing David Tennant's name around - but to me, he's the perfect Aziraphale!
did this one die too?
Hmmm. I was thinking more Brad Dourif
Not really sure if this one should be filmed.
They made a film out of SOMETHING WICKED THIS WAY COMES by Ray Bradbury. And they filmed THE CIRCUS OF DR. LAO by Charles G. Finney.
The results were...not good.
Studio interference is at an all-time high, as we know.
So far no one has DARED film STRANGER IN A STRANGE LAND by Heinlein and one prays they never do!
This is a truly great book, Good Omens.
Don't let the Film Studios wreck it.
Had the late great George Harrison read it one can imagine that (a) he would have funded the movie and let it be made right and (b) that Agnes Nutter would have inspired an alteration in the lyrics of his song "The Art of Dying" on ALL THINGS MUST PASS.
And then Amazon.com came along.
Well, we'll see.
