Actually, i've just had a bloody amazing idea who could be cast as the prisoner if they made a new series (this is presuming they did it in england and didn't Yanky-fy it). Drum roll.... "Life on Mars"'s very own John Simm!!!! WHo better than DCI Sam Tyler to take over the iconic role. He's the right biuld, looks like a pretty tough and clever chap, and can pull off a cheesy all black suit. Yeah, that would be class.
In fairness though, whats the point in making a new version of The Prisoner. I'm of the belief that stuff should only be re-made if its gonna improve upon the original and, to be honest, i reckon that the original was so groundbreaking for its time, a newer version would be forever in its shadow.
But what the hell do i know? It could just be the best thing ever!
