Serious miscasting

From the Internet Movie Database:

Hollywood hunk Brad Pitt is set to wear a tailcoat and breeches in a big screen adaptation of Pride and Prejudice. Pitt is producers first choice to play aloof hero Mr. Darcy in the latest re-working of the Jane Austen classic. Rising teen star Keira Knightley has already been cast as the heroine Elizabeth Bennet. The 1995 BBC television adaptation was a huge success worldwide and launched Love Actually star Colin Firth to fame after he won over an army of female fans with his onscreen plunge into a lake.
