Just an update for those of you following casting for The Golden Compass: Kidman’s role is now official. (Porpoise actually saw the news before I did and said, “Nicole Kidman has now been confirmed.” “I thought she was already Catholic,” I said, confused. “Except for that little Scientology phase.” Then Porpoise clarified that he was referring to casting, not religion. My interests get mixed up sometimes.)
Oddly, IMDB also shows that an actor named Adam Godley will be playing Pantalaimon, Lyra’s daemon. I assume this means the voice only. I suppose it’s a new challenge to create a CGI character who constantly changes form.
