Well, I can definitely see him playing the part.

I can almost never picture the characters in novels, not enough to see which
actors would play them.  Sometimes--but usually it works out that I see
someone actually playing the part and think "he's exactly the way I imagined
the character should be."

Thanks for the comments on An Ideal Husband.  My husband and I are going to
see it pretty soon, as soon as we can find time and a babysitter....

OOh, me too.  He was so good.

Somebody stuttery and diffident, probably.  He's always played the same sort
of character.
