My blogging pal Norwood Matt pointed out something I wasn't aware of about the casting preferences for the upcoming His Dark Materials films..
From IMDB: "Writer Philip Pullman wants Nicole Kidman to play Mrs. Coulter and has indicated that he would like Jason Isaacs to portray Lord Asriel. He has also indicated that he would like the part of Lee Scoresby to be played by Samuel L. Jackson."
Norwood Matt wrote:All of these choices are good, but this last is particularly brilliant. In at least the spoof trailers, we will be treated to Mr. Jackson bleating,
"I want these mutual-funding cliff-ghasts off my mutual-funding balloon!"It simply does not get any better than that.
