Dream Cast for Steampunk: the Movie

I didn't know what to write about today, so I thought I would roll out the old standby of bloggers and think about casting for a hypothetical movie. So who would you cast in Steampunk: the Movie? Here are my thoughts.

The heroic young scientist: Ewan McGregor
His straight-laced, straight-shooting fiancee: Keira Knightley (nobody is surprised)
The mad scientist bent on world domination: Gary Oldman
His daughter, who is as beautiful as she is dangerous: Natalie Portman (ditto)
Mysterious agent from the far Orient: Tadanobu Asano
Large-mustached colonel: Stephen Fry

I'll add more as I think of them. Perhaps you would like to contribute?

ugh. hate keira knightly. what about ellen page instead? or, make natalie portman his fiancee and ellen page the evil dude's daughter, since she's younger.
also, you need roles for christopher walken, lawrence fishburn, cate blanchett, and monica bellucci.

I think any Steampunk (Starpunk?) movie should have James Doohan and William Shatner in it.
