    Not an actor but Russian singles skater Artem Grigoriev (right) could actually play Yagudin. Their skating is similar as well.

    YES! and Scott Speedman as Sergei Grinkov!

    Mariska Hargitay or Crystal Chappell as Margarita Drobiazko

    Illeana Douglas as Maya Usova

    we don't need an actress to portray Sasha--she is an actress! I saw her on CSI: New York.

    Did she actually have any lines or was she just skating?
    I found a clip on youtube, but it's just of her skating.:confused:

    I thought Monica Keena who played Abby in Dawson's Creek did a great job playing Oksana Baiul in A Promise Kept: The Oksana Baiul Story

    Steinfield also has a strong resemblance to Adelina Sotnikova.

    Sasha did have some lines, not a lot and personally, I think she's a much better skater (competition jump issues aside) than actress.

    A younger Fred Savage could portray Armin Mahbanoozadeh.

    Who cares if Chris Meloni could skate or not.
    I'd be happy for him to just model underwear.

    Watching Mission Impossible released lately, I kept overlapping this guy with Dick Button.

    And now that I think about it, Tom Cruise could totally portray Brian Joubert!

    After watching some Lifetime Channel Movies, I think Cinthia Burke looks and even sounds like Nicole Bobek.

    The young Kevin Kostner, that's who should play Kurt.

    Every time I see Akiko Suzuki I thunk of Natalie Wood in "Miracle on 34th Street". It's the eyes.

    Depardieu as Artur Dimitriev.

    I see Alexis Bedell as eligible Sasha, and Christina Ricci as pro Sasha. Her face really rounds out when she puts on weight.

    I mentioned this somewhere on this board before too, but the actress who plays Lucy Steele in 'Sense and Sensibility' movie looks so much like Harding.

    One of the actors in 'Little Miss Sunshine' looks so much like Weir. He is the brother of the cute little girl in that movie.
