*fluffy* and the towel is played by...

Oh. My. Gosh.

And the most important thing for intergalactic travel is, of course, a towel. Just make sure you soak an end in nutrients in case of an emergency.

Douglas Adams' "Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" is being made into a MOVIE!!! (the screenplay having been written by Adams himself before he so rudely kicked the bucket)

And they casted the perfect people for Arthur Dent, Trillian, and ESPECIALLY Zaphod (except that the actor only has one head -- I assume they'll digitalize that little defect) but Ford Prefect is black! That is so not the middle-aged, business-suit-wearing, white guy I had imagined -- but I think that will make it even funnier.

OH I can't WAIT to see this movie!!!!!!!!!! 2005... a long time to wait. I'm gonna be following these trailers 'n' such!

OMG OMG OMG OMG! Ok only the most profound and wise of all novels ever written...the completely misnamed trilogy of five books that is of course the Ultimate source of everything. And We all know the answer to everything is 42. And of course that earth is "mostly harmless"...the mostly being Ford's addition. AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH a MOvie!!!! AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!! Ok so psyched...thank you for making my night and of course now giving me a reason to shreik repeatedly.

"The increasingly inaccurately named Hitchhiker's Trilogy" (I laughed so loudly when I first read that, and it still makes me grin)

Isn't it SO EXCITING?!?!?

I'm still thrilled by the guy they've got playing Arthur. John from Love Actually! YAY!
belenen ══╣garrulous╠══
I was skeptical at first, because what makes the books so funny is Adams' style... but he wrote the screenplay, so it ought to be awesome!

I haven't seen Love Actually -- is it worth watching?
karmia ══╣╠══
Don't be TOO excited about him writing it-- there are two other screenwriters listed in the credits thus far, which means that they did as little as polish up some of the dialogue or as much as completely rewrote the script.

Personally, I loved Love Actually. But I don't really know what kinds of movies you like, besides Lord of the Rings, so I don't know if you'd like it or not.

Splendid !! I've long thought they should. I hope they do a better job than the funny but poorly done PBS (public access station) version they did. It had special effects that were second only to Dr.Who (the early years).

If you think back really hard, Dr. Who thought that a guy wrapped in a single layer of bubble wrap would make a good monster, and an engine timing light looked a lot like a good lazer gun (both ideas being horribly wrong). It looked a lot like a highschool kids film project (from the early 70's, at best). heh heh...

I'll have to do some research on this and find out all i can. That series of books absolutely rules ! yay !

Yay indeed! It's always cool to find another Douglas Adams fan!

Isn't there already a movie? or it might have been a series on tv first or something. We have a video of it tho, a bbc one. Its good, but not as good as the book. Of course. Is it an american movie, with american actors with the accents?
