They could probably get a tall, mildly acne-having thin teenage girl to be a very convincing Dave. Then have the real Dave overdub his voice. (Or... Paul McCartney's present-day voice sounds a LOT like present-day Dave.)

They could get any strange-looking guy with curly hair to play Syd, and for the speaking voice overdub present-day Roger Waters (who does sound a lot like speaking Syd when he isn't angry).

Jonathan Frakes could do a convincing bearded Rick.

I once put on a fake beard and was IDENTICAL to Nick Mason.

Harrison Ford can play Roger.

I personally hope there will be no Syd biopic - rock dramatisations are virtually always (with the VERY odd exception) only good for unintentional laughs! I'd hate to see the story of Syd subjected to that.....

I think Johnny Depp wanted to make a movie about Syd. Would be interesting I think...

personally I enjoy them... but that's me

and yeah, Ford would make a perfect Waters, but only the present-day one

Ashton Cutcher might make a good then-Rick...

Michael Pitt is THE man to play Gilmour. If he can pull of the accent and gets long hair again. I'm not sure if his hair is long or short now.

There's only one believable Roger Waters - Richard Gere. Or the Danish singer Steffen Brandt:

You really need to wash out your ears.

A Scouser (however rich) will never sound like a middle class boy from Grantchester Meadows. :wink:

Think he could fit both. But Rick is more suitable, maybe. Yeah, the pic is nice, the guy is so cute! Just looks a bit too young, but I don't thing that's a big deal, he still can be young Rick (or Rog), can't he ... IMO
