OK, I LOVE this question, but I'm gonna need some time to think about it. Awesome!

I think Lucy Liu is the obvious choice for Yoko. She's an excellent, versatile actress and, with the right wardrobe & make-up could practically channel Yoko.

Madonna would be perfect for Linda McCartney. She has the fake British accent down.

I'll have to think about the others as well.

Robin Williams would have been a great Ringo in younger days, but he's a bit old now.

Liam Gallagher as John. Lucy Liu as Yoko. David Ono as their love child.

Johnny Depp is a chameleon and could probably portray any of them, but I think he could be particularly entertaining as Ringo.

That's funny (and true) about Madonna. I like Lucy Liu too much to see her as Yoko. Originally I thought maybe Bjork but then I thought Shelob, the giant spider from Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King.

I'm thinking Sean Hayes for Ringo, he played Larry Fine in the recent Three Stooges movie that I didn't see.

Johnny Depp....maybe George?

I had to Google Sean Hayes because I couldn't place him, but you're right, I can see him as Ringo.
Also Bjork as Yoko would be pretty good.

Colin Farrell would be great as John Lennon!

Except for George Martin these are brilliant choices. Is there a young Christopher Lee or Jeremy Irons? Maybe Jude Law?

Yoko can still play Yoko...after all there is only one Yoko!

Your picks for the lads are spot on.

L. Crosby says:
Agreed, I think they're all good picks except for Brad Pitt, too, who I just stuck in at the last minute ... A young Christopher Lee is a much better choice for Martin!! Since this is a 'fantasy' anyway, I was thinking you could expand on this to be any actor at any age, because you'd have to show how they changed through time also...

Just off the top of my head,
John-Johnny Depp
Paul-John Cusack
George-Kevin Spacey
Ringo-Robin Williams
Yoko-Meryl Streep (possibly the ONLY one who could..LOL)
Linda-Helen Hunt OR Jenifer Aniston
Brian-Tom Hanks OR Anthony Hopkins
George Martin-Anthony Hopkins OR Tom Hanks
Maharishi-Michael Myers
