Hugh Laurie as Ian Anderson
Denzel Washington as John Coltrane
..and though Val Kilmer was about as good a Jim Morrison as you could get, Kurt Russell would do in a pinch

Tom Hanks as Neil Peart!

 
Tom Hanks
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Actually, on second thought, the whole 70s beard phase wouldn't look so great with Tom. Otherwise, the resemblance is striking. What's more, it could be a really good movie if set around the tragic Test For Echo days. Hanks can act.
