    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!

    These are pretty good ideas actually!
    I never would have thought of Neil Patrick Harris for Schultheiss.
    :rofl: @ the "serious cat" and Gachinski(sp?)

    This thread is hilarious.

    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.

    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
