Bill Nighy was cast in the lead role of Charles Paris in the 2010 BBC radio/audiobook adaptation of the Simon Brett's "Cast, in Order of Disappearance". This book is the first in the series "The Charles Paris mysteries", featuring Charles, a minor British actor and amateur sleuth, and was originally published in 1975.The audiobook version of the story was relocated to the set of a vampire film "The Wreathing" with Charles cast in the role of "Szabec", a middle management vampire in an organised vampire society. The relocation of the story is a deliberate reference to Bill Nighy's casting as "Viktor" in the "Underworld" franchise of vampire films. In the audiobook, the equivalent of the "Selene" role (played by Kate Beckinsale in the film) is played by a fictional actress called Jodie Ricks (dramatised by Martin McCutcheon in the audiobook).

Bill Nighy is an award-winning British character actor. He was born William Francis Nighy on December 12, 1949 in Caterham, Surrey, England, to Catherine Josephine (Whittaker), a psychiatric nurse from Glasgow, and Alfred Martin Nighy, who was English-born and managed a garage in Croydon. At school, he gained 'O'-levels in English Language and English Literature and enjoyed reading, particularly Ernest Hemingway. On leaving school he wanted to become a journalist but didn't have the required qualifications. He eventually went on to work as a messenger boy for the Field magazine. He stayed in Paris for a while because he wanted to write "the great novel", but he only managed to write the title. When he ran out of money, the British consul shipped him home. Nighy wound up training at Guildford School of Dance and Drama in London, and has since then worked consistently in film, television, and on stage.
