We watch... so you don't have to.

Hitchhiker's Guide to.. huh?

So they're finally making a feature film version of "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy," apparently based on the late Douglas Adams' own screenplay adaptation. Hooray! And Martin Freeman, Tim from The Office is a great choice to play Arthur Dent, I think.

But in a move I'd never in a million years have predicted, Mos Def has been cast as Ford Prefect. That's about as far as you can get from David Dixon, but given Ford's wild background before he got to Earth, it might just work. It's certainly going to add to the quirkiness factor.

Zooey Deschanel is going to be Trillian. No word on who will be playing Zaphod Beeblebrox or Eccentrica Gallumbits, the triple-breasted whore of Eroticon 6.
