What about Catherine Zeta-Jones as Velda? She'd be a lot better played, then! ;D

Christopher Lee as Hordriss? Yeah!

Johnny Depp in his Pirates of the Caribbean role (Keith Richards in Monkey Island: The Movie, more like!) as Skarkill...

Lord Fear: "Skarkill! Where are you, you misreable goblin hunter?"
Skarkill: "Hey, whoa, everything's fine, you'll get your dungeoneer on a platter."
LF: "You'd better, or you'll be incinerated so fast you won't know what hit you."
Skarkill: "Ah, now you see there, I would know, because you've just told me. Now instant incineration? That would be...interesting."

Richard O'Brien : Lissard

That one is truly inspired. It must be done.

How about me as Lord Fear? I've already got a lovely cloak.

Right, I'm off to chair a 'Zippy Is Blind' meeting

I dunno. I reckon Rod Hull would have made a great Lord Fear.

"There's Somebody at the Spyglass, There's Somebody at the Spyglass"

This would of course be followed by a Giant Emu's head decending from the sky and trying to bite the Dungeoneer.

I'll never forget Billy Connolly on Parkinson. After Parky being repeatedly attacked by Emu Billy grabbed Emu around the neck and said "If you go for me I'll break your neck and his fupping arm"

Right, I'm of to blast some ghettos

I agree with those have said that Mark Knight is indeed perfect as Lord Fear, but if we're looking for an alternative, I say Alan Rickman would be perfect.

He has the sarcastic humour down perfectly, whether as a good guy or a bad guy (see Robin Hood: Prince Of Thieves, Dogma, Galaxy Quest and Die Hard for a start) and he, like MK himself has a very convincing sneering demeanour.

What locations would be good

Knightmare/Dunshelm castle could be in Caracssone in Southern France or maybe Warwick castle.

Come to think of it, Richard O'Brien might be better as Grimaldine than as Lissard.

I am aware of that, but I was dissapointed that they were all in the South. They should have used Reavlaux Abbey or Skipton Castle.
