"Capricorn was a tall man, and gaunt, as if the skin had been stretched too tight over his bones"

Inkheart was made into a movie in 2009, which starred many famous actors including Brendan Fraser, Helen Mirren and Paul Bettany. In the movie, Capricorn is played by Andy Serkis (left), who looks rather different to the above description- Serkis is most famous for playing Gollum in Lord of the Rings, but in reality he's a lot healthier looking than his on-screen counterpart. Perhaps the director didn't realise before he cast him?
