] Who to play Henry....? Hmmmm....
] Knowing Hollywood, it would have to be someone who's "hot" right now, like Leonardo DiCaprio (too young), Matt Damon (too American), Ethan Hawke (too grungy),...
] How about Matthew McConnaghy?!?!?
He is a hot property but he may be a bit too Southern? (Of course I've only actually ever seen him in Lone Star. Still haven't seen Amistad yet.) But can he be allegorical and mysterious??
At one point, I thought about an English-accented Henry but imagined an Anglo-Indian actor. A young Art Malik perhaps? His father runs a pappadom empire and has bought Northanger Abbey (once the seat of the Tilney family made famous by Jane Austen's novel). Something to reflect a modern, multicultural Britain.
Also Catherine is dismayed by all the modern freeways, supermarkets, etc.
