Casting call for inevitable Henry Nicholas biopic
It wasn't a coincidence that I mentioned Robert Evans in a post about everyone's favorite drug-addled, sex-obsessed and federally indicted entrepreneur Henry Nicholas of Broadcom. With Josh Hartnett starring in what looks like a schlocky ode to dot-com excess in August, the details of Nicholas' indictment reading more like the outline of Blow, and locations ripped from The OC and Laguna Beach, it's perfect fodder for a Hollywood screenplay. In fact, Evans protegé Brett Ratner could produce, with Michael Mann directing and Paul Haggis as the ghostwriter for the script Nicholas would be daft not to pen while locked up at Betty Ford. But any good package needs an "opener" as they say in the biz — a big name star for the marquee to draw crowds. So I ask you, dear readers, who would you cast as Nicholas?
