Let's Cast The John McAfee Movie

The story of John Mcafee is so freaking weird, he actually sold the movie rights to his life while detained in a Guatemalan prison. Obviously, now that McAfee: The Movie is on the table, we have to cast it.

Here's our best shot. Anyone we missed? Should ALF just come out of retirement to play McAfee? Let us know in the discussion below.

John McAfee: Mickey Rourke

In no way is this a stretch. Rourke already has the rough leathery look down pat. Photo: IMDB

Murdered neighbour Gregory Faull: Albert Brooks.

Faull could be Brooks' long-lost twin. The hair alone! Photos: Facebook, IMDB

Suspected Teenage Female Assassin: Salma Hayek

Not to typecast, but, you know. Photo: IMDB

Vice Editor-in-Chief Rocco Castoro: Mark Ruffalo

As half of the duo that revealed McAfee's location on the lam in Guatemala, Ruffalo would be wonderfully unhinged. Photo: IMDB

Vice Photographer Robert King: Joaquin Phoenix

The caveat is that it's got to be Joaquin from I'm Still Here. Photo: Vice, IMDB

    Harrison Ford looks way more like McAfee- he's got the same haggard appearance, while still vainly trying to look young and hip: The tragic mid-life crisis look.

    Billy Bob Thornton as Mcafee. He's got the 'I want a teenage girl nude in my villa now' vibe to him

    Robert Downey Jnr as the man himself.

    Gary Busey as McAfee, no doubt.

    Danny Trejo as McAfee I reckon.

    I vote for Jeff Bridges as McAfee. It's the Dude with a haircut!

      Yeah, Bridges could do it man!

    Robert Knepper - T-Bag from Prison Break

    It's the perfect one, also you are not going to get big names to star in a movie about him, it'll be a tele movie.

    I'd say Billy B Thorton, or possibly Willem Dafoe?

    Roy Scheider - Jaws - Iron Cross

    EDIT: Scratch that - He's dead...
