    -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)

    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:
