42, Actually

14 Jan 2004

The BBC have a story about the new, might-actually-happen, Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy movie. They've cast two of the high points of Love, Actually - Martin Freeman (Tim in The Office), and Bill Nighy ("Thankyou, Ant or Dec... Kids, don't buy drugs - become a rock star, and they give them to you for free!") - as Arthur and Slartibartfast respectively. They're also retaining the vocal talents of Stephen Moore, the original Marvin ("God. I'm so depressed."). It's nice to see they're not screwing it up yet, although they still have to cast almost everyone else. Johnny Depp as Zaphod? We can only hope.
