The perfect Howl candidate

I found the perfect actor to play Howl, if, as someone once suggested, a
live-action howl ever came about.
Richard E. Grant.
For cross referencing, see the magnificent, most recent version of The
Scarlet Pimpernel by the BBC with him as the cheeky, dashing Sir Percival
Blakeny. He is sort of what Howl would be if he was brave instead of a
slitherer-outerer, as one friend said to me, but I reckon he could carry it
off, even if he should be slightly younger...
What does anyone think?
