Just like to say that I think an ideal person to play Elric in the film would be the person in that American series 'Lost'....(the one that plays the Southerner that everybody hates).He has the look, if you use your vision, and no. I'm not an especial fan of his, but have read all the Elric books many times over many years, and he would be perfect if they managed to slim down his nose slightly!Can someone cleverer than me with a computer post a picture - then you could see!
