I could easily picture Mike Myers as Hubbard. Or Beau Bridges.

He has a similar look and the depth of skills to pull off LRonPsycho!
I just saw this topic, and I thought of him immediately! Came here to suggest it, but I see I'm not the only one who thinks he looks perfect. His voice is even somewhat close.

Over at WWP, I just listened to a Hubbard audio clip on epilepsy.
Immediately I thought to myself, "That voice reminds me of characters Hoffman has played".

Perfect casting, and he is a very fine actor.

Josef Stalin is dead, and doesn't speak english.

Saddam Hussein is also dead, and doesn't speak english.

Mao Zedong is dead too, and only spoke Mandarin.

Kim Jong IL is alive, but doesn't look the part, and also doesn't speak english.

I guess they could haul Charlie Manson out to do it, but he is not quite crazy or evil enough.

Someone else that they might get to play Elron is the guy who played Nix in Lord of Illusions.

All he'd have to do is play the same part again.

Peter MacNicol could play Moxon, I think. He'd need to learn to do 'evil,' but he's already played a lawyer back in his Allie McBeal days.

This may be generally known, and only "new" news to me, but while reading Hubbard's bio on Wikipedia, this was listed under "Fictionalized depictions in media":

"As of 2010, director Paul Thomas Anderson is planning a film based on Hubbard called The Master.[200] Philip Seymour Hoffman has been cast to play the leader of, "a faith-based organization that becomes popular in 1952 America — exactly the year L. Rob Hubbard expanded his Dianetics self-help system and established the Church of Scientology."[201] Reese Witherspoon and Jeremy Renner have reportedly been approached to appear.[202]"

I’ll do it! After all, I am Demented LRH.

I always wanted to play a villain. My DIGG screen name is FX666.

How about Danny DeVito to play DM?

And I think Bubbles from The Trailor Park Boys would've make an good Hubbard.

I think the actor who played Jordan's father on Crossing Jordan should play LHR as an older man.

The actor, Adam(?) Brody could play a young DM

Thank you!

Ron Howard's actress daughter (forgot her name), could play one of LRH's wives.

Mila Kunis could play a younger Kristie Alley if she were to be in the film

Jon Hamm would make a good DM in middle age.
