Re: Who Should Play Copernicus?

Nick Nolte has the enormous chin, I guess. Robin Williams - god, no. But what's exciting about Copernicus? De revolutionibus orbium coelestium wasn't even published until about the time of his death, so the Inquisition couldn't get their hands on him. In fact, the Catholic church showed very little interest in undermining the heliocentric theory until the time of Galileo, 60 years or so later.
