  1. David Matthews says:

    Billy Crudup, Matthew Broderick, or maybe Ethan Hawke.

  2. Anna Moellering says:

    I think Mr. Farlow looks like a young Kevin Costner. Ethan Hawke is also a good choice.

  3. Petra K. says:

    Ethan Hawke sounds good… I think Cary Elwes would also be a good choice.

  4. How about Paul Rudd for this one.

  5. Merry F says:

    Dennis Quaid

    Or! — Denzel Washington, Chris Noth, Darren Burrows

    Val Kilmer

  10. Alis says:

    Ben Stiller or Ethan Hawke

  11. Mary Boynton says:

    I suggest Doug Wood who is an author and actor and lives in Dallas, Tx, he could be reached at his publishing house address: 16200 North Dallas Pkwy, Ste 170, Dallas, Tx 75248 and is a retired comptroller for the airlines. A very good C.S.t and could bring alot to the role.

    Barry Pepper. A dark horse, I know, especially with so many other good actors mentioned, but he really is incredible. Don’t believe me? Watch “The Snow Walker”.

  13. Jan says:

    Also consider Guy Pearce.

  14. Kim says:

    A perfect role for Christian Slater.

  15. rob says:

    Christian Slater or Cary Elwes

  16. Mrs.Darcy says:

    William Porter Carter!!!!!!!!

  17. Jennifer Davis says:

    Kurt Russell

  18. Nancy says:

    Christian Slater

  19. Matthew Broderick

  20. Christine Domin says:

    Cary Elwes

  21. Karen says:

    Are you trying to find actors who are Christian Scientists? Have you thought about visiting Principia College Drama Department, where Robert Duvall got his start? You might also consider asking CS orgs and Asher House, Adventure Unlimited and Discovery Bound if they have any actors in their groups.

  22. Mary says:

    Greg Kinnear. I know he tends to be associated with silly roles, but if you’ve ever seen him in his more serious roles, there is a real depth to him. I like the idea of Barry Pepper, too, but I think he might be a bit too severe for this role. Look at Farlow’s eyes in this picture. There’s a subtle merriment there that I have a hard time envisioning in Pepper.

  23. Mia says:

    I like the idea of Cary Elwes for this role.

  24. Cynthia Voelker says:

    Robert Downey, Jr., Harry Connick, Jr.

  25. Cindy says:

    Josh Brolin.

  26. Shari says:

    Harry Hamlin

  27. Marnie says:

    The description of this man says: handsome, well-mannered, well-liked, gentle . .. perfect actor for this role could only be Keanu Reeves. He is a very spiritual person and represents all those qualities.

  28. Jayne Taini says:

    Campbell Scott….who I think is a very underrated actor and a very elegant presence. He also has CS in his background as his grandmother was a practitioner and Colleen Dewhurst his mother embraced it again near the end of her life.

  29. Susan says:

    Matt Damon

  30. Sherry says:

    Brendan Fehr

  31. Traci says:

    Based on similarities in appearance as well as sheer acting ability, Bill Paxton.

  32. Dalemarie Davis says:

    Keanu Reaves.

  33. Patti Barbara says:

    Dale Minkiff

  34. Susan says:

    Christian Slater – by the way, this is fun – thanks

  35. Chris says:

    Ewan McGregor

  36. Ben Stiller, if he can play it serious. :) Very close look-a-like though.

  37. Valerie Bell says:

    I think Bill Paxton would be perfect. Christian Slater would be a close second.

  38. Angela says:

    Tom Cruise. It would be great to see val and tom work together again.

  39. J. Miller says:

    Timothy Olyphant of course

  40. mark says:

    Gerard Butler

  41. Bob says:

    I would do the part, Iam from Boston, so I have the natural Boston accent and also work in public relations

  42. Diana says:

    Tom Cruise

  43. Sara says:

    Colin Firth

  44. Doris Temme says:

    Timothy Olyphant is an excellent suggestion.

  45. Kirsti says:

    Josh Brolin?

  46. Lola says:

    Skeet Ulrich

  47. Eva says:

    Harry Hamlin, Bill Paxton, Christian Slater, Joaquin Pheonix on the young side

  48. Terry says:

    Eric Thal (A Stranger Among Us, Six Degrees of Separation, Snow Falling on Cedars)

  49. Daniel says:

    Lukas Haas would be perfect. If not him then a close second is William McNamara.
