    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:

    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.

    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

    -Ellen Page (Inception) as Katia Gordeeva
    -Hayden Christensen as Sergei Grinkov (the Star Wars dude's inability to speak English might actually be a bonus here ;))

    -a young Amy Madigan (Gone Baby Gone) as Tonya Harding
    -Hilary Swank as Nancy Kerrigan

    -Liv Tyler or Anne Hathaway as Alissa Czisny

    -a much younger Jet Li as Patrick Chan (and if they're using wires, a stunt double may not even be needed)

    Kayla Ewell as Carolina Kostner. They look like they could be identical twins.

    Hilary Swank with her androgynous good looks could play either a male or female skater imo.

    OT but I ADORE Colin Firth as Mr. Darcy, however for me the quintessential Mr. Darcy is from the 1980 BBC Masterpiece Theatre's version - actor David Rintoul - and the quintessential Elizabeth Bennet is in this version as well - Elizabeth Garvie.

    A young Anthony Perkins (think Psycho) as Jeffrey Buttle.

    I like the suggestion of Ryan Philippe as Tim Goebel.

    I love David Rintoul as well, and Elizabeth Garvie too! Glad to know someone else likes them.

    I'm a Masterpiece Theatre geek. Nice to know someone else has seen that earlier version. :D Actually, it is out of my love for Jane Austen that I tried to watch as many versions of movies based on her books that I could find. :cool:
