|Hubby and I have been trying to "cast" "Manhunt" and had immediately cast Johnny Depp, but if he has refused, a second actor that we have mentally cast is Edgar Norton. I never liked him, but when we saw him as the tortured magician in "The Illusionist" we suddenly could see him as John Wilkes Booth. Plus Norton is a darned fine actor.
Still Booth was reputed to be one of the best looking men in America at that time. So I can see stars such as Eric Bana, Ioan Gruffudd, Clive Owen, Jude Law with dark hair, even Brad Pitt (having seen pics of him in Jesse James.)
