There's been a whole load of casting news left, right and centre for the upcoming US remake of Only Fools and Horses.

Carlito's Way star John Leguizamo is playing Del Boy while Dustin Ybarra (?!) will be the new Rodney. But, if you're remaining cautiously optimistic about the remake, you'll be rather excited about the latest.

Christopher Lloyd, yes Doc Brown himself, will be taking on the role of Grandad. The ABC comedy will tread the same path as the original, with the three characters concocting various get-rich schemes. Lloyd's most recent roles have included Piranha 3D and the ingeniously titled sequel Piranha 3DD.

Happy Endings star BJ Bales has also been cast as Trigger, who has now been turned into the villain of the piece. He's described as a "ghetto-talking con man who is Del and Rodney’s perpetual enemy". Hmmm.

The show will air in the US this Autumn with the UK to follow. What do you think of the latest casting developments?
