    I don’t know where you get your information, but this makes no sense. Liam Neeson is in his 60′s and Sean Connery is in his 80′s. How could they possibly portray a man from his early 20′s into his 50′s?

    Well the books where written years ago. So that is probably why she might had them in mind.

    No, I get that. But they weren’t seriously talking about making this a movie or show until the early 2000′s. Maybe Neeson could have been considered for older Jamie, but Sean Connery would have been in his 60′s.
