I do like the idea of Bill Nighy as well though.
Wow, I was just watching Buffy tonight and thought the same exact thing. He might be able to do it, but the question is can he carry all of that and apply it to the weight of a feature film? I say weight because it's quite a different kind than television.

"We've always defined ourselves by the ability to overcome the impossible. And we count these moments. These moments when we dare to aim higher. To break barriers... to reach for the stars... to make the unknown known. We count these moments as our proudest achievements. But we lost all that. Or perhaps we've just forgotten that we're still pioneers... that we've barely begun and that our greatest accomplishments cannot be behind us. That our destiny lies above us."
