The recent one, with Paul McGann as Eugene Wrayburn? Oh, yes.

Interesting thought. I'll have to watch it again with that in mind.
( The things I put up with for my DWJ fandom. :P )

Actually, I don't think I do the mental casting thing very often, for
DWJ's characters or for anyone else's. My mind doesn't seem to work
that way.

(Mind you, my mental shortlist of actors who could play Aziraphale in
_Good Omens_ is exactly one name long, and that's at least partly due
to noticing his performance in something else and going "You know,
*he* could do Aziraphale...")
