    Back to The Young and The Restless! Amanda Heinle (Victoria Newman Abbott) could do Nancy Kerrigan and her on-screen husband Billy Abbot (Billy Miller) might be a possibility for David Pelletier. He's certainly got the charm.

    Hmmm, for Jeff, I'd probably nominate a younger Rick Shroder or a younger Mark Paul Gosselaar.

    I think the original poster was thinking of the movie with Keira Knightley, and Mr. Darcy in that was played by Matthew MacFayden...probably spelled that wrong. I liked the actor, but I didn't like him as Darcy. There is only one Darcy, and that's Mr. Firth.

    However, I went back and looked Matthew up, and you know, if you made him blonde, he DOES look like Plushy! Albeit, much better looking...

    I don't see any resemblance between Sasha and Natalie. I don't see any between Justin and Tim either.

    Sorry.

    I absolutely adore me some Alex (have ever since Zoolander), but I think he's too tall to believably play any figure skater (he's over 6'4). Of course, I'm now picturing Eric Northman figure skating.

    Randy Harrison (Justin from Queer as Folk).

    I also have to say, that one Jonas brother as Stephane Lambiel.

    Watching "Inception", I thought that Joseph looks like Heath Ledger + Chan. lol

    Thanks, yes, I was thinking of Matthew MacFayden (I didn't know his name, sorry) as Plushenko

    But I agree with both that the real&unique MrDarcy is Colin Firth :swoon:

    See, I was thinking Renee Taylor (from The Nanny), but they're very similar!

    I know I'm stretching this a bit but...
    Anna Trebunskaya of Dancing With the Stars (so she's a dancer;I'm cheating) could portray Maria Anissina!
    And for Gwendal Peiserat, a younger Fabio! Whatever happened to Fabio?
    Now, since I'm really cheating, Maxim Chmerkovsy could play a ton of Russian skaters.
    Cheers!

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

    Justin Beiber or Randy Harrison could portray Jeffrey Buttle. They all have that "cute factor".

    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.:)
