How about the young Jaye Davidson (remember him, from The Crying Game) as Johnny Weir?And I thought I was the only one who thought they looked alike.

Most actors are too old to play figure skaters so I'm going to do it backwards. I've seen many a photo where Brian Joubert looks like a young Robert De Niro. So my suggestion is a figure skating remake of Taxi Driver. This time Travis Bickle drives a cab to support his dream of Olympic gold and some bad PCS scores set him off.

Tomas Verner is cute. He does not look at all like Lurch. Lurch was very weird and ugly.

I agree with this. But they both do have rather rectangular heads.

Also, what about Robert Pattinson for Joubert? They are both hot and actually resemble each other quite a bit with their similar hair colors and pale complexions, IMO. Also, Joubert is about as popular with the ladiezzz as Edward Cullen ;)

Kim Cattral as Elena Glebova? I mean that is who she is attempting to portray in her SP, yes? :P

Pamela Anderson as Elene Gedevanishvilli...now that she's blonde, it would make sense

Gérard Depardieu as Plushenko
Andy Mcdowell as Marie-France Dubreuil
Christina Ricci as Sasha Cohen or Caroline Kostner
Cole Morgan(Eric, the son from "I now pronouce you Chuck and Larry") as Johnny Weir

After watching I am Not There, I am convinced that Cate Blanchett could nail Plushenko part on screen. Hell, she could even win the long-deserved Lead Actress Oscar for the part.:)

Well she's already got that Russian accent down.:)

I always thought young Michelle Yeoh (sp?) could play Kwan.

Great picks (and pics)! It's almost scary how much Katherine Hepburn looks like Nancy in that picture.

For Jeff Buttle, I'd nominate Derek Hough from Dancing with the Stars.
And I think Dmitry Chaplin from DWTS could do Evan Lysacek.

LOL, I was just watching The Fighter the other day and thinking, "My goodness, Amy Adams really resembles Tonya Harding here" :lol:

Dan Radcliffe as Shawn Sawyer? He's the right size :P

Also what about Drew Barrymore for Rachael Flatt? http://ucesy-sk.happyhair.sk/celebrity_img/barrymore1d709.jpg

And Missy Peregrym really resembles Alissa. http://reaper.edogo.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/07/missy-peregrym6_big1.jpg

Noooooooooo Amy Adams is too beautiful to play Tonya. Even though Amy does have a more down home look then a lot of Hollywood actresses. Which is what i love about her. She seems more accessible and approachable then say someone like J-LO.

I agree with you. Randy Harrison from "Queer as Folk" would be a good choice for jeff Buttle.

What about Chord Overstreet (http://cdn.buzznet.com/media-cdn/jj1/headlines/2010/10/chord-overstreet-power-of-youth.jpg) as Jeff Buttle?

On the contrary, it could be Adams' path to an Oscar (un-glamorizing oneself often leads to Academy Awards, e.g., Charlize Theron in "Monster") :P
