Who should play David Irving? Part 2

I like the way some people think, Clive Davis, for instance.

Remember how, two or three weeks ago, I speculated about who would play arch-Holocaust denier David Irving in a movie that’s been optioned based on his libel suit against Holocaust historian Professor Deborah Lipstadt? Well, Clive Davis has a better idea:

Cinematical suggests Emma Thompson should portray Lipstadt. As for the other lead role, I’m tempted to go for Denzel Washington, just to give the world’s most famous Holocaust denier another reason to go to court.

Heh. I’d love to see that. Of course, if we want to match viewpoints, though, I wonder if David Duke can act. Of course, he really wouldn’t need to act. If he can do a convincingly pompous British accent, that should be enough.
