    Why didnt they use douglas adams voice as the narrator instead of stephen fry??? they could have use the audio from the audio book!!!

    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.
