Get hattie back, why risk using someone else when we all know hattie can do the job perfectly well
someone with a dry-monotone-deadpan delivery
Ken Livingstone is not busy at the moment
Hattie never took at all: a non-character.
Unless he's put into situations that cause him harm in some way, shape or form his presence will just deter people from watching it. Don't let him tarnish Dwarf like he has to London!
I dont think Bill Bailey would be right somehow, but i do think Holly should be played by a mature actor/actress from the UK.
My favorite would be to revive Hattie, but im open to other suggestions, cant think of any of my own at the moment though..
Something to consider is the condition of Holly if it is revived - Returned high IQ ... or as he was before? This could help sway the choice of person to play the part
I'd say that it'd have to be Hattie Hayridge if she was willing to come back and do it, she was fantastic as Holly in all 3 series she was in. It's a shame Norman won't come back though, much as Hattie was good, Norman was always a better Holly in my opinion
Definitely not Bill Bailey! Hattie was good - not sure who could take over the role if not Hattie - Adrian Edmondson! - a clockwork mouse....anybody but BB please :?
HEY leave Jane Leeves alone!!! :twisted::x
But yeah, as worrying as it is, I can REALLY see Bill playing that part well.
Now I am a fan of Bill Bailey as a comedian... but I really don't want to see him as Holly.
There's something about the idea that doesn't sit right with me, and I couldn't enjoy it with someone like him in Holly's role.
If we had to get another new holly I'd like to see Tony Robinson beeing given the chance.
Might just be me but I think he'd do a very good job.
If they can't get Norman or Hattie but want to bring Holly back, any of the following would work for me:
David Bowie (he hasn't got anything better to do these days).
Anyone else from The Comic Strip.
Doug Naylor (is there anyone he can rely on more than himself).
Perhaps they could do a scene where the revived Holly is trying on new heads. I think that would be funny. The rest of the crew could give reasons as to why they don't like specific heads.
bill bailey is hilarious, but i don't know if he'd suit red dwarf.
mabye as a simulant or some other alien but you can't have him as holly.
Jane Leeves did make a half-decent Holly I thought. She was the most successful piece of casting in either American pilot. Still miles behind Norman, however, though I think I'd prefer her over Hattie.
i don't really see a need for a holly at all. the character was not needed from series 3 onwards series 6 showed that holly was not needed. if anymore specials or series are made i just hope holly has not been dried out yet. as kryten can say everything that holly would have done.
Bill Bailey as Holly.
Phil Jupitus as Captain Hollister.
And Mark Lamarr as Rimmer's brother in a new episode.
Have a Buzzcocks Dwarf.
I quite liked the character of Gordon, too. Sadly the actor that played him is no longer with us.
But I don't think getting Holly back is necessary - series VI & VII worked fine without him/her/it.
Yes but they were not on Red Dwarf.
I can see it now
Lister: so where are we Hol?
Holly: *Bill Baily* huh? wahh racoon farm.
Just not the same *sigh*
"Wahh racoon farm?" why don't you just type ping ping tiddle bong, it'd be a more convincing lie.
Besides if he said that it'd be the writers fault, not his.
