I'll ignore the Keira-as-Eliza heresy for the moment, but I cannot ignore this: Pitt or Clooney as Henry Higgins — WTF?! If Hollywood insists upon remaking My Fair Lady, the only actor who should be allowed to play Henry Higgins is my beloved Hugh Laurie. I mean, c'mon: he can sing, we know he can play arrogant, and hello — he's actually BRITISH! I can't think of a time when Clooney has played British, but I know for a fact that Pitt can't pull off the accent.

Yeah, it's gotta be Hugh.
