Yay, I think so!

And who can we get to play Simon Illyan? I can't visualize any current major

Hmm. How about Colin Firth?

I think Keiffer Sutherland as Ges. Even in his "bad"-dest mode I don't think
he can be Negri. Ges, on the other hand, does not usually show it, and that
fits. Don't know who can do Negri.

Anthony Zerbe would be Crown Prince Serg, of course...

Hm. As I haven't seen Matrix II and III, nor any of the other films he is
in, I don't get a clear visual of him. Doesn't matter! :)

You have two hands. One to help yourself and one to help others.
