] ] What about Matthew Broderick? He's my idea of funny, and sweet. But he's not British. Could he do the accent?

That and a smile that lights up his face the moment after he's commited his mischeif. Lovely boys!
Oh, how about Rupert Graves? He's very boyish and impish-looking and can be rather Matthew Broderick-like (he was Freddy Honeychurch in "A Room with a View," Phillip Herriton in "Where Angels Fear to Tread," and Greville in "The Madness of King George"). I love him! I'm sure there are others, but he popped up in my mind first.
