Revealed: WikiLeaks' boss went from hero to Taliban poster boy
Julian Assange's status as a defender of the downtrodden has taken a battering, writes Carol Hunt
Licensed-to-kill Bond star Daniel Craig is only half-way down the list at 12/1. Leonardo DiCaprio is doing slightly better at 9/1. But leading the polls at 6/1 to play the role of the icy blond WikiLeaks master Julian Assange in the inevitable Hollywood movie is his fellow Aussie, Russell Crowe.
Then again, if reports of the man's colossal ego are correct Assange may insist that no mere actor would be up to playing the most influential personality of the century -- bar himself, of course.
Because to many -- and quite possibly to himself -- Julian Assange is nothing less than a god.
