Fact 1: tootsiemuppet is finally reading it, and now understands just what is so funny about the word "Belgium". Which is good, considering she's Belgian. *G*
Fact 2: Apparently there is a German actor in vampire movies... actually, apparently vampire SEX movies... who sometimes is credited as Zaphod Beeblebrox - a fact which I found out while trying to find out who plays Zaphod Beeblebrox in the upcoming movie. Ever heard of him, Cat? Go here: http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0026109/
Fact 3: You will not believe who's in this. Really. Playing teeny tiny parts. Such as:
Billy Nighy as Slartibartfast (*L*!)
Alan Rickman (formerly the Metatron, Voice of God) as... the voice of Marvin the Paranoid Android (!)
Simon Jones, the original Arthur Dent in the TV show, as the Magrathean Announcer
John Malkovich as Humma Kulvula (who's that?)
Warwick Davis as Marvin the Paranoid Android (inside the suit, which, as tootsiemuppet points out, looks more like a Krikkit Robot than what Marvin should look like!)
STEPHEN FRY as The Book! (I never would have realized this; he does it much like the voice in the TV show... *G*... but tootsiemuppet pointed it out!)
4. Sam Rockwell (never heard of him; his imdb resume doesn't ring any bells) plays Zaphod, and I think I'm going to like him. He reminds me of Sawyer (of LOST) meets Johnny Cunningham (the badboy recently deceased Scottish fiddler/rock star)
And - this is for Cal - I just had a revelation. The old Saturday morning cartoon, "Jonny Quest"? How did I not realize for years that Dr. Quest and Race Banner must be... had to be... gay lovers? *L*! I mean... good lord... it slashes itself! *L*!
[ETA: Go here - http://communication.ucsd.edu/cchris/ - for a thesis on whether or not "Jonny Quest" implied a homosexual relationship between Dr. Quest and Race Banner. *G* Best part? Apparently there's a site where somebody raises the question "Why does Jonny look nothing like Dr. Quest - but just like his father's life partner?" *L*! And apparently there was a parody on TV where Dr. Quest and Race have a custody battle over Jonny. *rolls eyes* There goes the innocence of my childhood!
Those are my bizarre thoughts of the day. Thank you.
