Secondly, wasn't Elizabeth supposed to be less pretty than her older sister, but smarter and funnier? They're not gonna find anyone beautiful enough to play Jane then :P
Not read the book but in that case, they probably should've swapped over Rosamund Pike and Keira...Rosamund Pike, if memory serves, was very sassy in Die Another Day. She's not bad looking, but if she's supposed to play a role that's prettier than Keira...err...no.
