        How can a man with no distinguishing nasal features be called "Ol' Hooky"?

              Have you seen the film? Specifically I want to know if they have reused the "Waterloo" movie footage.

                Yes I did.
                No, they didn't.

                  I'm not sure how well John Malkovich will do in this role. But I'm not going to judge him based on previous roles. After all, amazing performances have come from unexpected actors such as Heath Ledger in The Dark Knight and Michael Keaton in Batman.

                    The two guys behind "wellington" alone make my interest die

                      I can see Malcovich do Napoleon, but not Wellington. You need some high born dude play The Lord.

                        Malkovich is a fine actor but not as Wellington. Couldn't they get Hugh Fraser?
                        Also they guy they got to play Massena appears to be 25 years younger than Wellington when in actuality Massena was older.

                        I'll probably check it out.
