Your top choice is Danny DeVito.  He is 70 years old and is five feet tall.  He is most known for his roles in the television series of Taxi and It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, and for films like Twins, The Rainmaker, and Terms of Endearment.

  • can anyone see Danny DeVito taking on a roll outside of the US? would be surprised can see Wallace Shawn for sure he is awesome. He is also well known for his roles in Gossip Girl as Blairs step father and as pictured in The Good Wife. A great character actor. Toby Jones would be great too his face less recognisable so character association would be with the book not the person so much.

    I think they should stay with less well known faces. It’s proved a winner with the main characters . Why change a winning formula.

      Totally agree with both of you. I love Danny DeVito but the other two actors here would be a better choice, in my opinion. For no other reason that It would be hard for me to see past his “taxi” and “Sunny in Philadelphia” characters. Bet Sam would love having Danny help him with his NY accent though! Not sure the height should be the most critical factor. Murtagh Was “little” in the books and Rupurt was quite large in the books. So long as he can capture Raymond’s personality …

    Good to hear your views. I believe casting dept. will do good job on this.
