  On 09, 2008 8:14 DLC said they had 3 goes at casting it and eventually went back to the first attempt, suggesting they were not that pleased, and I thought someone else also commented unfavourably, although I have not kept all.

  He also said

  "closely followed by Chicago's superb C#" so presumably that is the answer.
