42, Actually


The BBC have a story about the new, might-actually-happen, Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy movie. They've cast two of the high points of Love, Actually - Martin Freeman (Tim in The Office), and Bill Nighy ("Thankyou, Ant or Dec...

It's nice to see they're not screwing it up yet, although they still have to cast almost everyone else. Johnny Depp as Zaphod? We can only hope.
