Arrggh, I meant 1980. Got my decades mixed up. Julia...remember those names. I'm with Rita and Lorna re Gabriel Byrne.

Colin Firth? I'd prefer an actor with an IQ above 80.

Hugh Jackman, who was the only good thing in "Kate and Leopold"?

Being repetitive, but David Straithairn.

"Immensely attractive"??? Mary, you and I have different ideas of what "attractive" means.

The name "Hugh Jackman" meant nothing to me so I looked him up in IMDB. It seems he's been in two things I've seen, but I don't remember him from either of them.

I was not familiar with Jackman either until I rented "Kate and Leopold." He is the only reason to see that movie. Check out my comments over in Show Biz.

Wish I could remember a few names. Might have to have a browse through the casting threads on the Lyst, but the trouble is that Paul Darrow made the role so much his own that I've never been able to see anyone else in the role - and that's transferred to Holland to some extent.

Colin Firth is in the "if we can't find anyone better" class, as far as I'm concerned. I wouldn't rule him out, but there must be better available. Ditto Pierce Brosnan. Rowan Atkinson has the personality but not the looks (I'm thinking Blackadder here, not Mr Bean ).

Here's a thought - Stephen Pacey matured into someone who might do very well in the role for anyone who isn't going to sit there thinking "Tarrant". He's fortyish now, and filled out into something less of a beanpole - and is not a bad actor. I haven't seen him in a substantial enough role to be able to judge whether he'd have the presence needed, though.

Rummaging on IMDB - maybe John Hannah, who amongst other things was in Four Weddings And A Funeral, and who played the lead in McCallim.

Stephen Pacey! Now there's a thought. Does he still have curls? Holland would never have curls.
