    I just hope it's better than the old BBC version. That totally blew. There were parts in there you couldn't understand without having the book in front of you. Sometimes I think that's how they did it.

    It´ll most likely suck... It bugs me they´re going to have a black guy play Ford Prefect, it doesn´t mesh with the image of Ford I have... not the slightest.

    if he's a good actor, he can play Ford fine. My image of Ford was something like a comedy version of Harrison Ford, and even that didn't suit me.

    I'm so seeing this.

    The only 2 "main" characters who have a legitimate reason for having "must-have" British accents are Arthur and Trillian. Ford to a lesser extent, trying to fit in and all, but it's debatable what "his" British accent would sound like. It is hard to imagine them pulling off any semblance of the extremely British colored tones of the entire work without the accents, but, oh well, what are you going to do. They'll make what they make.

    Did you even read the books? They didn´t make Gandalf chinese, did they? And Gimli wasn´t played by a 2m NBA star.

    Respect to the author, that is what I seek.
