Hugh Grant - generic posh bloke

Keira Knightly - generic posh woman

The boy who played Joffrey in Game of Thrones. He will always be Joffrey. He was spectacular, especially for such a young actor.

Emma Watson - not a good enough actress to be synonymous with anything other than Harry Potter, in terms of acting. Her work outside of acting is quite impressive though and might be the only thing which distances her from the role.
