YES!  I recently fininshed reading Douglas Adam's Hitchhikers Guide trilogy (again!) and it is a very enjoyable jaunt.  If you have not read it, please do so.  It is a wonderful tale, and should be included as required reading in any creative writing class.  Such imaginative story-telling I have not experienced since...  well, since then at least.

I understand it was actually a radio and television program on the BBC, and I am planning to get the dvds.  

Anyway, I just happened to be cruising a movie db and noticed that the book is to be a movie in 2005!   So far Steven Moore has been selected for the role of Marvin the Paranoid Android.  For anyone who has read the books or is familiar with the story, who would you like to see in the remaining main roles?

Arthur Dent - Hapless Earthman, holder of The Question to the Answer to Life, The Universe, and Everything

Ford Prefect - Guide Researcher, Galactic Hitchhiker, Arthur's friend

Zaphod Beeblebrox - President of the Galaxy, Ford's cousin (w/2 heads)

Trillian (Tricia McMillan) - Earth Girl, Zaphod's squeeze, astrophysisist

Slaterbartfast - Planet Designer (fjord specialty)

Fenchurch - Arthur's infatuation (book 3)

(if you have read the books, have fun, pick people from the forum! grin2.gif )
