If you could cast ten actors in a film, who would you bring together? Post your thoughts in the comments.

I remember “casting” Ian Holm as Bilbo and Ian McKellan as Gandalf in my dream Lord of the Rings film many years before Jackson took on the project, and he did oh so well with the rest of that casting.

But rarely have I been as excited about an assembling of actors as I am about the new film by Christopher Nolan (Batman Begins, Memento).

I mean, just LOOK at it:

Andy Serkis has signed on to Touchstone Pictures’ The Prestige, directed by Christopher Nolan. He joins Hugh Jackman, Christian Bale, Michael Caine, Scarlett Johansson, David Bowie and Piper Perabo.

Bale and Jackman will play rival magicians in turn-of-the-century London who battle each other for trade secrets. The title refers to the residue left after a magician’s successful trick.

Serkis plays the assistant of Bowie’s character. His credits include King Kong and “The Lord of the Rings” trilogy.
