Got to thinking about this the other day, and thought I'd pose the question here:

What actors (current or in the past) would you cast to play historical figures? We've seen the efforts in "Gettysburg" "GAG" and some other films. For example I think that when he was younger, Clint Eastwood would have made a good Forrest. Y'all have any ideas for casting the Civil War?

Lot of good ideas there, though.

Any new thoughts?

I've always thought Christopher Lloyd would make an excellent Gen'l. Meade.
Reached his zenith on July 3, 1863, forever in the shadow of Grant.
