Lithgow is bankable, though he'd have to do the frail act, quite right. He can do hispanic in his sleep. Pick your
poison. Ricardo Montalban? Is he still around?

Manuel? I figured him for no older than 36 at story's start. But I don't know; it all depends on how long you think
it'll take for the busybodies of the Free Luna government to cock things up badly enough that Manny'd feel the strong
urge to emigrate by story's end. It's definitely not a Will Smith or Chris Rock part. Denzel Washington? Conceivably,
playing sincere and a bit plodding, but nobody's fool.

Get Spider to write the screenplay.
