Jack Black as Toby made me cringe, Dave Grohl for Flynn made me laugh!

The principles characters are tricky, but I'd throw my hat in for Gerard Butler for Finlay Campbell. I'd say Sean Connery for Giles, but I think he's too old to manage the role anymore. I'd love to see Tilda Swinton in the role of Lionstone, I saw the film Constantine while I was reading this series, and I visualized her as Lionstone afterward.

Tilda Swinton is inspired, very yes. Anyone have her agents number to hand ?

She portrayed also the White Which in Narnia and did it very well.

I always saw Lionstone as very young (barely out of her teens), so I'd think Tilda Swinton is too old for the role (which is a shame as she is an amazing actress).

Jack and Dave work very well together, and I am a big fan of Jack Black. I think he is a very versatile actor (think more King Kong than School of Rock).

Interesting that you imagine Lionstone as that young, I think that she had time to strenghten her power over the nobles... but even if she is not that young, she might look very young, because of technology.

She had the best of everything, remember.

Consider, if you will, Jacob Wolfe. At the start of 'Deathstalker' he is one hundred and three years old, but looked like a man in his forties and could easily be mistaken for Valentine's brother (thanks to Imperial science.)

Part of why I imagine Lionstone to be young is the way she is described (notably by Dram). She acts like a petulant child a lot of the time.

Even though their physical descriptions are sort of reversed, I can easily see Simpon Pegg as Toby Shrek and Nick Frost as Flynn.

Eesh!

I can't stand either of those two. Neither of them have the charisma to pull of either role.

I have to say that my antipathy for that 'comedic' pair is so great that, were they to be in the (hypothetical) movie, I would have strong reservations about even watching it.

I'm not convinced that'd pull the role off.
