Who will be the best Elron?

Post by SCIE-NO-MO- » Fri Jul 07, 2006 5:10 pm

In my dreams someone will make a movie out of "Bare-faced Messiah" soon. Leonardo DiCaprio would be the best Elron, but he played Howard Hughes only a few years ago, which is somewhat similar. Matt Damon would be a good choice too. If the have to have a young and an old Elron, the old should be Kelsey Grammar or either one of the Bridges brothers, Jeff or Beau. If DM gets into the picture he should be played by - I think his name is David Farantino - he was the son, Bud on "Married with Children"

But my absolute favorite choice would be a puppet movie like "Team America" with Phil Hendrie doing all the voices.

Tom Green should play Hubbard. He's tall (6'3"), can portray wild mood-swings and has a look-at-me compellingness. With a rubbery face and red hair, he could do the young Hubbard almost without makeup, and don a latex double chin (later, a triple chin) and jowls to play the older LRH.

DiCaprio, Damon, and Grammar are too pretty to play LRH, and the Bridges have faces that are too square, but Farantino could DEFINITELY play Miscavige.

Ernest Borgnine or Ed Asner should play Hubtoad.

Those three are good, but there's no make-up that will make them look like Hubbard in his twenties and thirties.

I bet you'd be right Aristotle! Instead of using "Bare-Faced Messiah" as the title, they should go with a more marketable one like "Brokeback Cultboy".

Hoffman's the right age, too. At a baby-faced 39, they could doctor him up to play a fairly believable college/navy-age Hubbard all the way through Hubbard in his 70s, especially if he lost a little weight for the early part of the filming, then gained some extra weight back for the "Old Hubbard" part.

PSH - If DeNiro can do it so can you! Oscar #2! :yes!:

Do you like Ernest Borgnine because his last name starts
with BORG?

I'll vote for Phillip Seymore or maybe Peter Stormare:

Phillip Seymour Hoffman is an outstanding choice. He has the range and acting chops to handle the role and is at the right age to play Hubtoad as a young and an old man.

Next question: Who will direct? I’d go with an Indie director who wants to establish him/herself. Most of the established directors would probably not want the headaches that would inevitably come from the cult’s attempting to shut down production and hassle the actors, extras and film crew, let alone the film studio. I mean, look at the headaches that Michael Moore went though trying to find a distributor for Fahrenheit 9/11 when the Bush administration went out of its way to block distribution. THIS film would probably have an even tougher time since the Justice Department still does not take Scientology seriously enough to consider it a real threat.

But the time is VERY right to purse this biopic right now. Scientology is vulnerable, has been the butt of jokes on the net, and after the recent success of “Ray�, “Ali� and “Capote� (with Hoffman!), the film going public seems to be in a rare receptive mood for film biographies.
