On a Lighter Note...

On IMDB, there is a page for a 2009 movie of Atlas Shrugged, the fantastic novel by Ayn Rand. There is a lively discussion going on, where fans have listed which actors they would like to see in the roles. I have to agree with them - here are some of their picks:

Dagny Taggart: Cate Blanchett
Hank Rearden: Jon Hamm
Lilian Rearden: Julianne Moore
Francisco D'Anconia: Antonio Banderas
Cheryl Brooks-Taggart: Amy Adams (If she makes it into the movie)
James Taggart: Kevin Spacey
Hugh Akston: Michael Caine
Ellis Wyatt: Joaquin Phoenix

I myself would like to see Greg Grunberg as Eddie, and Cary Elwes as Ragnar Danneskold - assuming, of course, that Daniel Craig won't be available. (I'll bet Craig would LOVE that role!)

And I agree with posters that John Galt should be played by an unknown.

First..I think it's SO funny that you and I both mentioned IMDb in our posts today.

Second.. and on a lighter note as well, I adore Cary Elwes!

Third..My brain is still asleep, so honestly, I can't form coherent thought past Cary now.
