Re-Casting Atlas Shrugged

It seems that the film version of Ayn Rand's perpetual best seller, Atlas Shrugged, is going to be divided, like all of Gaul, into three parts, sort of an unholy trinity.

The first part is slated to be launched in April. Advance rumors have it that it's a low-budget deal and that the roles are played largely by unknown actors.

However, considering the marvels that can be accomplished by dubbing and Photo Shop, perhaps it's not too late to sugggest our individual dream cast for a work which is probably the most significant, wholesome, and influential philosophical work of the 20th century.

If this goes well, we may go into a recasting of The Fountainhead.

My candidates:

Dagny--Michelle Pfeiffer

Hank Reardon--Leonardo di Caprio

Lillian Reardon--Meryl Streep

Francisco--Antonio Banderas

John Galt--Jude Law

The Office Boy (I've forgotten his name) Nicolas Cage

Extra points for anyone who can suggest a place at the table for the terminally talented Bette Midler.
