A little update, in case you didn't realize. Freddie Highmore is the star in August Rush currently showing. He's every bit as magical in it, if not more, than Charlie from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
His Dark Materials: The Golden Compass features Highmore's voice as the shape-changing ferret daemon named Pantalaimon ("Pan" for short ^_^). Christopher Lee a.k.a. Dr. Wonka, has a role as First High Councilor of the feared and powerful Magistrate.
And you'd have to be living under a rock on Mars to have missed the modern media hype that is Tim Burton's Sweeney Todd, staring Johnny Depp and Helena Bonham Carter. I wonder if Deep Roy got a part? Did you realize that he was in The Neverending Story?
Anyway, I think it's wonderful to see them all as busy and talented as ever.
