You could take the characters that Hanks and Washington played, change them around ever so slightly, plug them back in and you'd have a different film.

Washington played the character of a homophobic lawyer, who eventually takes on the case and befriends Beckett.

Watching the working relationship that develops between Andrew and Joe, from their first handshake (which Joe frightfully pulls away from) to their final encounter in Andrew's hospital bed, is what forms the crux of this heartbreaking and riveting movie experience.
