They need an Ed Norton American History X type of casting, as I'd never have that guy down as someone capable of pulling that off - well, not at the time anyway. Here's hoping they don't just give the role to Vinnie Jones, lol.
Seeing as he's English, I'd hope the fucker would release his books here first haha. Although he is living over the pond these days, smart man.
Oh, and anything with Oldman in tends to be fucking great. Hope your film adaptation lives up to the book's standards lol.
