Who would play L Ron Hubbard?

One day someone will make a full feature movie about the life of L Ron Hubbard and how he created the Church of Scientology.

Yes, that Alf. Put him in a fake navy uniform, throw some rum on him, some drugs, and he is a dead ringer.

Too bad Marlon Brando is gone. During the Apocalypse Now years, he would have been great for the older Hubbard.
Image
And the young Brando would have been perfect for early Hubbard, the war hero and world explorer...
Image
... assuming you're making the Co$ Hubbard biography.
If you're doing the true story, you'd need a guy who partied so hard he flunked out of college...
Image
Belushi would have been perfect, both for the younger Elron during his Animal House days and, if he were still alive today, the older one.
Sean Penn, as Jeff Spicoli in Fast Times at Ridgemont High could have played Hubbard the college dropout.
Image
As he matures, maybe Penn will become the ultimate Hubbard.
There's one person who will never play Hubbard:
Image
After his last Hubbard-inspired movie tanked to badly, nobody's going to give Travolta money to burn on another one!

I'm going for Philip Seymour Hoffman...ah, he was so good in Capote. Plus, he's a little on the thick side with a receding hairline, so the physical resemblance wouldn't be too off.
