  2. Hahaha. Love it! But forget Crowe. You should be played by your double: Brendan Coyle!

    I'm casting Charlie Cox as me, btw. ;-)

  3. Excellent casting. John Hurt has not worn well methinks.
    After a rethink I would choose Dawn French to play my part. By the New Year we will probably be about the same size!

  5. I will play Russell ... If John is willing to step aside of course

  6. P.S. After H.I. had finished laughing at the 'staring' John Hurt, she said that it was a compliment. She despises the wretched Crowe almost as much as I do, but has a deep fondness for Hurt, whose acting abilities totally eclipse Crowe's any day.

  7. I'm up for a bit of Russell Crowe any day of the week especially if he's dressed in his Gladiator gear *drool*.
    Again I'd have to pick Dawn French to play me - big + sense of humour. Not sure how she'd feel about dying her hair scarlet or purple though. And does she have the correct driving license to manhandle a 25ft motorhome around some of Europe's scarier roads? :)

  8. MASSAGE FROM R.CROWE:-
    There is no frigging way I'd play you mate! Dontcha know I am a rough tough ladies' man. But I can link you up with that bloke from the BBC's "Top Gear" programme. What d'ya call him? Clarke or Clarkson - something like that. Much closer match mate.

  9. The mother of the fratelli brothers in the goonies would be great as one of the villagers ( hope John can think who because I'm not saying it on here , I would have to start checking under the car with a mirror before heading off anywhere ) ....

  10. John Hurt looks far too fit & well to play Stephenson.

    "Make-up"!!

  11. You sure Mr Crow can nail the necessary accent? Also surely he just isn't quiet good looking enough is he John?

    1. he has the lived in look I am looking for... and for realism sake I will need to coach him intensely to get my mannerisms just right!!!

  12. Bonneville and Crowe? I was thinking more Whitfield and Scott, in no particular order (UK readers only).

    I would like to be played by 2D from Gorillaz. In fact, I would like to be 2D.

  13. Love your choice of actors for yourself and Chris, but John Hurt for Tom is a perfect match (from my bloggers view of him that is)

    ReplyDelete
  14. Matt Lucas could play 'The Village'. When they make 'Cro; the shocking truth', can I have Augustus John to play me? Us Welshmen must stick together.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Yes, yes, I see the resemblance between you and Crowe. What a fortunate man he is. I have a cat who can play Albert, albeit, with a little makeup.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Obviously,Carol from The Walking Dead will play me.

  17. what wonderful fun. Is there an opportunity for 2 scruffy dogs (think "Alfred" on Heart beat)?
    I would of course be played by Kate Bush, wafting dreamily through the goose shite trilling "Wuthering heights" before disappearing into her picturesque cottage where she would conjure up stunning patchwork quilts and never have to do any housework.
    She would have a passionate affair with Johhny Depp as the itinerant dog groomer.
    Oh dear, I'm getting carried away now...

  18. I can't believe you don't have a photo of George Clooney as The Vet. With all your animals, The Vet will have at least a supporting role in the film.

    I'm not sure whom to cast to play me. I'll need to think on that some more.

  19. Now, that had me laughing! I mean, laughing, hard! You do have a wonderful RFWF, never having (or remembering) seeing pictures - I think he would be perfect. Of course, Your 'Auntie Glad' would be wonderful as well.

    That said, ahem... I cannot see Mr. Crowe mucking about with the ducks with his pants full of chicken shit, I mean - really!

  20. I want to be Helen Mirren when I grow up!

  21. Ahem.....I shall repeat what I said yesterday....Russell's got a big butt! Our Sophie aka The Little Nazi would like to have a part...really any part will do....I'll ship the little bitch. She ate an entire plate of homemade shortbread cookies then puked them up on the carpet.

  22. I think you made some great choices, John!

  23. You have a double John....my husbands best friend......although he's bald, you look so very similar ....

  24. I just ran some celebrity face recognition software online out of curiosity. I came out as Demi Moore so I'm guessing that doesn't work so well!

  25. Vanessa Redgrave has always been my idol so I would have to go for her to play me John. Speaking of such things, my hairdressers says he has about thirty women each week who ask to have their hair cut like Judi Dench - and as he says, however they have it cut they will never look as sexy as she does!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Excellent casting! Interesting remarks about John Hurt not wearing well. He's just grown into his sad bloodhound looks. Sat opposite him on a London tube train 20 years ago and he looked pretty dissolute and worn out even then - but I've always loved and admired him as an actor.

    As for me - Catherine Deneuve of course!

  27. Brilliant casting with Russell Crowe. I knew it was you immediately. I think it should be a mini-series.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Lauren Bacall for me please. I'll look forward to your premier.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Stockard Channing - can't wait to see the film - perfect casting, especially Auntie Glad. Oscars all around I foresee.

  30. Audrey Tatou for me please Mr Gray - the likeness is uncanny! xxxxxx

  31. Phwoar Dr Christopher! I love Hugh Bonneville. And I can just see Helen Mirren wrestling pigs, she would do it as stylishly as she does everything else. As for me - well, I'd like Dawn French to play me but Miriam Margolyes would be more on the mark in the looks department.

  32. Actually, John, I think YOU should play Russell Crowe.

    Penelope Winton should play me... but not the her in the role in the 'Marigold Hotel' - more her in saving London in 'Doctor Who.'

    I fantasise that I look like Cate Blanchett, but the reality cannot be denied :-)

  33. Lucy Lawless could play me better than I do.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I love Russell Crowe, but only when he's hairy. Same happens with Mr Jackman. Ah well.

    Anyway, Mrs Miniver herself, Greer Garson, for me. Striking similarity. People comment. Well, really old people comment...

  35. Mr Crow is perfect for playing you. You do look alike. I like your choice for Dr Chris. A sprinkling of Clooney always adds a wonderful spice to the mix.

  36. Hmmm, who could portray me??? I know---Hyacinth Bucket!!

  37. The character that is.

  38. Oh I love this - a bit of light relief amidst the business of bringing in the hay and organising a carol service. Well if I was going to have someone play me I rather fancy Vanessa Redgrave (I know, she is a bit older than me but the make-up people would look after that issue - and she'd have to get to grips with my accent). The Trelawnyd Flower Show Committee would be up to the job of hosting the World Premier I'm sure.
    Looking Forward to it ;-)
