Who will play Leigh in WikiLeaks the movie?

The above is a suggestion on twitpic as to who should play Guardian investigative journalist David Leigh (top left) in the movie of WikiLeaks now that the screen rights to his book on the whistle blowing website, co-written with Luke Harding, have been bought by Steven Spielberg.

The poster of the pic, Joyce Lowenstein, obviously thinks Leigh is a doppelganger for the sociopathic killer Anton Chigurh, as portrayed by Javier Bardem, in the Coen brothers' No Country for Old Men.

Leigh shouldn't be too insulted. Bardem is married to the actress Penélope Cruz.

Via the Julian Assange fanciers guild website really!

  • WikiLeaks on Twitter reacted to the news about Spielberg: "This is how bullshit ends up being history: Spielberg lines up WikiLeaks film based on books by opportunists"

Gérard Depardieu, sans doute!
