Who has the right mix of roguish bravado to portray Julian Assange on the big screen?

That’s the question facing DreamWorks, which is planning a feature film about the controversial WikiLeaks founder, after securing the rights to two books written about him.

No casting decisions have been made yet, but four actors in particular seem like they could pull it off: Chris Cooper, Ralph Fiennes, Guy Pearce and Julian Sands. The first three are well-known stars; Sands is less famous but physically is a dead ringer for Assange.
