Dad’s Army is a movie based on the excellent / classic BBC comedy of the same name. The difference being this is an entirely new cast, but this will come as no surprise as the TV show ran between 1968 – 1977 and most of the original cast has since passed away. So we have some familiar faces from British television and film taking their places.
In fact lets take a closer look at who is playing who:
- Toby Jones as Captain Mainwaring
- Bill Nighy as Sergeant Wilson
- Tom Courtenay as Lance Corporal Jones
- Bill Paterson as Private Frazer
- Daniel Mays as Private Walker
- Blake Harrison as Private Pike
- Michael Gambon as Private Godfrey
- Martin Savage as Warden Hodges
- Alison Steadman as Mrs Fox
- Sarah Lancashire as Mrs Pike
- Catherine Zeta-Jones as Rose Winters
- Mark Gatiss as Colonel Theakes
- Emily Atack as Daphne
- Ian Lavender as Brigadier Pritchard
Note: The last one Ian Lavender who played Private Pike (Stupid Boy!) in the original series has a cameo.
Dad’s Army is out in the UK 5th February 2016
My problem is this, I think they have done a good job with the casting. Pike the stupid boy is played by Inbetweeners actor Blake Harrison so I don’t think he will be stretched too far, the rest of the cast are all good actors, so all should be good right? The thing is these characters are so ingrained in the British psyche it just comes across as a lot of actors doing impersonations, plus the original show is still repeated nearly every weekend on the BBC!!!
So will shall have to see if they manage to overcome these problems…
