Late Night: Let’s Play Movie Producer–The John McAfee Story

 

John McAfee, the anti-computer virus pioneer who went all Colonel Kurtz/rave gangsta in the jungles of Belize experimenting with extreme drugs, boinking young girls, and allegedly murdering his neighbor, was captured in Guatemala because some noob journo with an iPhone forgot to scrub the geo-data before uploading the photo. Oops. (Or maybe it was a vast conspiracy!)

Anyway, now that he’s in jail, McAfee–who is prolific blogger and blames his arrest on officials in Belize who have it in for him (nothing to do with drug experiments and boinking young girls, let alone allegedly murdering his neighbor since according to McAfee that was a set-up, or something)–has proved he really must be innocent. Because he sold the TV and film rights to his story to a production company, and issued this statement:

My most heartfelt thank you goes to Impact Future Media and Cartoon Monkey Studio. Their dedication to the truth is very uncommon in the world we live in today. I am now, and will always be, grateful to their organizations.

So, who would you cast as McAfee? Robert Downey, Jr.? Sean Penn? Christian Bale? (McAfee is kind of like American Psycho’s Patrick Bates after too long at Burning Man!). Matthew McConaughey? Gerard Butler? Josh Brolin? Maybe go age-appropriate with John Malkovich or Sam Butler?

Title ideas?

“Atlas Shit”.

And I say Patrick Stewart because he’d be good in anything.


DrDick | Tuesday December 11, 2012 08:04 pm 3

Lisa!

Seems like a natural for Bruce Willis to me.

Goes without saying. I’d pay money to see Patrick Stewart make wibbling noises for two hours.


DrDick | Tuesday December 11, 2012 08:10 pm 5

We need to get Coppola to direct. McAfee seems to take afte Col. Kurz and awful lot.


Elliott | Tuesday December 11, 2012 08:12 pm 6

I vote for Christian Bale – the resemblance (possibly in more ways than one)

Oh yes, Coppola

Right? Or reading the Wall Street Journal…

“As God is my witness, I will never tweet again….” From the movie, “Gone With the Signal”.

Malkovich, and more cowbell.

But his anti-virus software…I do not know…


Margaret | Tuesday December 11, 2012 08:17 pm 12

I think in the video he kinda looks like Tommy Chong.

I picture Stewart as having more good taste than to read the WSJ.

LMAO!

I see that North Korea launched a long-range rocket today. Somehow I’m just not all that worried that the Red Dawn remake is coming true.

In response to EvilDrPuma @ 15

Well, yeah but I was trying to come up with the most mind numbingly boring activity I could think of.


DrDick | Tuesday December 11, 2012 08:24 pm 19
In response to EvilDrPuma @ 15

I have to say that casting Stewart would be a bold move, casting against both type and character.


Margaret | Tuesday December 11, 2012 08:26 pm 20
In response to DrDick @ 19

Not to mention nationality.


EvilDrPuma | Tuesday December 11, 2012 08:27 pm 21
In response to Margaret @ 18

Well, then, the WSJ is definitely in the running. Except the editorial page, which is more enraging than boring.


Margaret | Tuesday December 11, 2012 08:28 pm 22
In response to EvilDrPuma @ 17

Oh? Are the North Koreans the boogeymen of that one? That would be even more absurd than I assumed when I first heard about it.


DrDick | Tuesday December 11, 2012 08:30 pm 23
In response to Margaret @ 22

Yep. I broke out laughing when I heard that part. Wingnuts are getting pretty damned desperate for boogey men.

‘Tis true, we’re supposed to believe that Kim Jong Un could conquer the United States. In reality, he’s probably too busy conquering his refrigerator.


Margaret | Tuesday December 11, 2012 08:31 pm 25

We could strand them in a boat and watch Rush Limbaugh eating everybody else. Call it “The Life of 3.14159″.

LMAO! That family consists of the only fat people in North Korea!

Can’t ever go wrong with him

Charlie Sheen, because – McPocalypse Now!

Hey, man, you don’t talk to the Colonel. You listen to him. The man’s enlarged my mind. He’s a poet warrior in the classic sense.

I mean sometimes he’ll… uh… well, you’ll say “hello” to him, right? And he’ll just walk right by you. He won’t even notice you. And suddenly he’ll grab you, and he’ll throw you in a corner, and he’ll say, “Do you know that ‘if’ is the middle word in life?

If you can keep your head when all about you are losing theirs and blaming it on you, if you can trust yourself when all men doubt you”…

I mean I’m… no, I can’t… I’m a little man, I’m a little man, he’s… he’s a great man! I should have been a pair of ragged claws scuttling across floors of silent seas…

Mmm hmmm…yeah…Charlie Sheen Lobsters Scuttling – it’s WINNING!

Margaret | Tuesday December 11, 2012 08:38 pm 31

Night! I think I will toddle off as well. Still have a pile of papers to grade yet and I will need my strength to get through all that. Take care all.

Lisa, Lisa, Lisa.

It’s obvious.

Charlie Sheen, he’s got experience and is practiced in all forms needed to do this one.

I worry about cha, this one was easy.

*G*

And we dare to mock Kim Jong Un, who does get paid to sit around the house in his underwear and eat Cheetos.
