I don't know who the casting agent is for The King's Speech, but they are doing a helluva job. After landing Colin Firth and Geoffrey Rush for the period drama, the film has just received a basket of talent that includes Helena Bonham Carter, Jennifer Ehle, Guy Pearce, Derek Jacobi, Timothy Spall and Michael Gambon.

Carter, Ehle, Pearce, Jacobi, Spall and Gambon for The King's Speech

Directed by Tom Hooper off a script by David Seidler, The King's Speech follows the young King George VI -- the father of the current Queen Elizabeth II -- as he reluctantly assumes the throne after his brother, Edward, abdicates. Considered unfit to rule and cursed with a nervous stammer, the unprepared monarch turns to an unorthodox speech therapist, Lionel Logue. The two men form an unlikely friendship as King George finds his voice and leads the country into war against the Nazis.

The film is already in production in the U.K., with The Weinstein Company on board to distribute domestically and in select foreign markets.
