Cool! Then that would keep Bill Nighey available for Uncle Andrew in MN. :)

Would anyone consider Geoffrey Rush? He certainly has the right sort of hair, at any rate. And the sort of sense of humour to do Mr Percival (a lovely, gorgeous pelican) in a remake of Storm Boy.

Hope this isn’t considered thread necromancy...I doubt Aslan would approve...

I recently listened to the Silver Chair audiobook, and the way Puddleglum was read called James Nesbit to mind. He played Bofur in The Hobbit trilogy, but I think the makeup job and alternate costume for Puddleglum would help to disassociate the two.
