I completely agree. Rupert Everett is one of my personal favourites but he never came close to the unbelievable Mr. Darcy played by Colin Firth. The only man who can make me doubt about the decision would be Richard Armitage. I'm still hoping for a brand-new version of Emma with him as Mr. Knightley. Oh, my Gosh!

About that new version of S&S, well just one more for the road. We'll see. My fav Brandon is still Alan Rickman soooooo....
