The initial idea was to use digitised samples from the various audio books and radio shows, to give the illusion that Douglas Adams was actually narrating the movie ... I mean, how cool would that be ?

Unfortunately, the accountants put a stop to it ... something to do with being actually and technically dead for "tax reasons".

Let's leave it at that.

I don't think yanks would understand his accent. They need the stephen fry type english accent to realise that the funny non-american accent is in fact a british accent and therefore the person is speaking english.

He is, however, the man who throws away his money and walks naked into the sea in the tv show.
