Rupert Murdoch‘s phone-hacking scandal leaves everyone with the same reaction:You can’t make this stuff up.
The messy saga — with its elements of power, greed, family drama, betrayal and enormous downfall — begs for a movie.
And we’re only getting started.
So while Murdoch (and his son, James) are busy testifying before Parliament, we’re taking care of casting News Corp, the Hollywood version.
Brooklyn Decker as Sarah Murdoch (Lachlan's wife): Both blonde bombshells are models-turned-actresses. Perfect fit.
Pierce Brosnan as Piers Morgan: From the accent to the (almost) first name, Brosnan could likely pull this off.
Ewan McGregor as James Murdoch: McGregor is loveable enough to make you sympathize with the heir-apparent gone bad.
Ed Asner as Rupert Murdoch: The resemblance is pretty spot on. Plus, Asner proved his ability to play mega moguls as Warren Buffett in 'Too Big to Fail.'
Zach Galifiankis as shaving cream pie-thrower Jonnie Marbles: An activist-comedian match-up. Plus, we're sure Galifiankis could take a a hit by Wendi hilariously.
