POLL: Who should play Assange in the WikiLeaks movie?

assange-harris.JPGNews has begun to trickle in today about a proposed WikiLeaks movie, documenting the rise of the whistleblowing website, the consequenting controversy surrounding its many leaked wires and co-founder Julian Assange’s “colourful” personal life.

The public face of WikiLeaks, the sometimes-enigmatic-sometimes-charismatic Assange makes for one of the more memorable characters in web history.

Which got us thinking; if the movie were to get the green-light, who should play that part, presumably the leading role?

Neil Patrick Harris of “How I Met Your Mother” fame (pictured to the right of Assange in the image above) is certainly a strong likeness, but does he have the acting-chops to carry what would essentially pan out into a tense-courtroom drama?

We’ve put a few ideas into the poll below, so let us know what you think, and feel free to chime in with suggestions of your own!
