OT: Recasting The Great Escape

Here's the post for us to continue discussing who we'd cast if "The Great Escape" were going to be filmed today.

Meany Darling and I are in agreement that David Tennant will be cast in the Gordon Jackson role. WOOHOOOO.

I'd like to make the case for Martin Freeman as Blythe, even though he's not bald like Donald Pleasance. However, he is sweet and adorable and when he goes blind, you'll still want to hug him. :3

We also need to find a spot for Hiddles and the Cumberbatch. Feel free to give us your ideas for Hundley and Hilts, as we're stuck.

And, Hollywood, if you're reading this, please don't take this to mean we actually want to see a remake of "The Great Escape" - there would never, ever be a remake that would do the first movie justice. You can't improve upon perfection!!!
