As for other choices, I have in mind someone else who - at a younger age - might have been very appropriate for the part. He's a little hard now. He might have also made a nice, crotchety John.
can't guess who you're referring to, kali(need more clues), but speaking of older people, helena bonham carter would've been a great emma, with sean connery(if he could fake the accent) as mr k. birtwistle/davies are definitely keepers, though - i know it would be futile for me to think-up someone better. yours truly would definitely help out though, and i'd put ang lee/michael coulter's s&s scenery in for color, but keep it all in surrey(unlike mcgrath's) for authenticity. i'd keep some of mcgrath's humor, though, upon my honor(which is in the book, though not as a laugh)! and my version would have BOTH mr. e's charades and the box hill word puzzles! oh yes, and if i can't have kate beckinsale, i at least need her hats :-D p.s.: and sam morton as harriet/olivia williams as jane f.
