    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.

    Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Patrick Chan

    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.:)

    Tom Cruise could be Brian Joubert...

    Scarlett Johannson could be Adam Rippon...

    Charlie Sheen could be Morosov...

    Johnny Depp could be TAT ('cause he can become anyone and would prolly love the role)...

    Simon Cowell could be Brian Orser

    If we get into coaches, I'm definitely losing it!
    Frank Carroll - the opposing lawyer on Harry's Law who is supremely uptight, repeats himself all the time and tore his clothes off in the courtroom when he lost.
    On the floor laughing....!
    Lurch as Tomas Verner? Oh that is inspired!

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

    Wow, that's brilliant. Best one so far.:swoon::swoon:

    di Caprio = Kulik, but I still think it's insulting to Ilia to say that he looks like Leo...

    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.

    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

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

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