    I see more of a Paul Giamatti vibe in Kubrick

    The Illusionist and arguably Barney's Version.

    I'd cast Ruby Dee as Stephen Hawking.

    Daniel Day Lewis

    as

    Jim Jones

    [image=http://www.myclassiclyrics.com/artist_biographies/images/Jim-Jones-Biography.jpg]

    I was thinking what kind of role would perfecty fit Lewis' tendency to sometimes go into extremities and this immediately came to mind. I think Lewis would be perfect in this role as it requires a bit of humanity and charisma which eventually becomes paranoia and madness.

    Leonardo Dicaprio

    as

    Vladimir Lenin

    [image=http://www.marxist.com/images/stories/history/lenin_arrested_in_1895.jpg]

    The physical resemblance is striking and I think DiCaprio has shown his ability to really explore the multi dimensional aspects of a historical figure based on his incredible performance in 'The Aviator'. Lenin is also such a larger than life figure and you kind of need a star to play him.

    Caprio looks nothing like Lenin. His face is too plump.

    Danny Houston looks nothing like young Kubrick.
