John Cleese as the Gov is a brilliant casting choice - I can't think of anyone better for the role. Can't wait for the movie, the books are hilarious, especially his parents.  ;D

Hopeful - poor little spud would  :blush: as his parents would arrive to watch his sports kitted out with deck chairs and huge cooler box - and they were always  already :drunk:...... :2funny: poor kid! To true, John Cleese is a excellent choice for the Gov! Ooops...will not give too much away..... ;) for all those who have not yet read the book.
