    While watching an entertainment "news" show, they kept showing Neve Campbell and I thought that if someone made a movie, she could play Cynthia Phaneuf!
    Years ago, an actor, Michael Graziadei, joined The Young and the Restless as Daniel Romalotti. He could easily play Elvis! His hair is better now but was dreadful in the beginning.
    Who else can you think of?
    (Scotty and Kurt could play each other as the years progress!)

    I always saw (the young) Leonardo Dicaprio as (the young) Ilya Kulik.

    How about the young Jaye Davidson (remember him, from The Crying Game) as Johnny Weir?

    Natalie Portman could play Katia Gordeeva

    Will think of more later. I am watching an NBA game on TV and listening to an NHL game on the radio. There is only so much a person can do at a time. :lol:

    that's perfect IMO! My non-skating friends, always believed it was Alexis when I first showed them something of Sasha! :lol:

    :rofl:
    Depp also as Candeloro! :swoon: ;)

    Di Caprio as Yagudin (Iron Mask rules! :D )

    There's an actor that I always named Plushenko, I don't even recall his real name! :confused: I should remember...

    :rofl: You are a genius with Tautou = Lambiel.

    I always thought that Tessa looked like Kristen. But now I see that Emily Blunt is a better match!

    FSU brilliance knows no bounds! These are terrific ideas! I love Adrian Brody as Plushy.
    Anyone got any ideas for Kurt?

    Billy Crystal's way too old for Kurt, but I've always thought that they bear a strong resemblance to one another.

    Michelle Trachtenberg could play Emily Hughes
    For Elena Ilinykh I think better option than young Anna Paquin can be Vanessa Hudgens.
