After months of wait, the british actor Bill Nighy (recently seen in “Love Actualy”) will definitly and officially play our old planet designer, Slartbibartfast.

As Nighy said to BBCi films when his name was first anounced : “I’m a big fan of the book and the people who are making it are very cool people and I think they’re going to do a good job,” says Nighy. “It’s a really good script. It’s really, really faithful (to the book). All the jokes are there and they’re big fat jokes. It’s wonderful. And with all the technology we have now, it can not only be a big satisfying comedy but I figure it could be quite exciting as well.”
