H.P.

Dolorous Edd should have been played by Karl Pilkington

Recommended Posts

Well, season 5 seems the right time to utilise his character more, since they've killed off Jon's other friends in the NW who aren't Sam, and Edd gets more 'screentime' in ADWD anyway.

I just watched a couple of episode of an Idiot Abroad again. He is seriously funny, miserable and has such a negative outlook. He is Edd.

"Awright, back in olden times, there was this Lord Commander right? He said naught, but was everyone was well happy with the job he done. Anyway, one day a big wind happened and his cloak come off. Turns out it was a little monkey.



What do you think of that then?"

And he's also a decent actor, which he proved in Derek.

I wouldn't go that far. He's basically playing Edd/himself!

Yes, but he's playing himself displying different emotions, such as getting very angry once or twice. I'd say that's not something everybody can pull off and make it seem believable.

Nah, Ben Crompton is pretty much perfect as Edd.



However, Gervais and Pilkintons dynamic is totally Pyp/Grenn. Have Gervais lose like 50 lbs, and Pilkington gain at least 50 lbs and grow a beard and that might be good casting right there.
