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.

Murdered neighbour Gregory Faull: Albert Brooks.

Faull could be Brooks’ long-lost twin. The hair alone!

Suspected Teenage Female Assassin: Salma Hayek

Not to typecast, but, you know.

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.

Vice Photographer Robert King: Joaquin Phoenix

The caveat is that it’s got to be Joaquin from I’m Still Here.
