I found this in Wikipedia's "Ron Paul" category (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:Ron_Paul):

Has anyone else heard about these rumors?

If this is true, Martin Short is the PERFECT person to play Dennis Kucinich.

Neither Google nor IMDB turns up anything of the sorts for Sir Mckellen.

Gotta be a hoax.
But wow, Ian McKellen's mannerisms seem to resemble Dr. Paul's, and he kind of looks like him too.

I could make a poster like that in photoshop in about 10 mins. Unless there is more to go on this is not very much

I'm at the least looking forward to the documentary, I think it was AdamT, said was in the works about the media bias towards Paul.

It would have been nice if a camera crew had followed the RP campaign trail, in the same style as "War Room".

The cast list is sort of suspicious, especially with this guy cast to be McCain:

Then Martin Short as Kucinich... and don't forget Ian McKellan as Ron Paul. It just seems too good and funny to be true.

Can anyone in or close to the campaign confirm or deny this? I thought it was a hoax at first, but there's no possible way a hoax article could stay up so long on Wikipedia without being challenged with a disclaimer or deleted. Wikipedia's a real stickler for accuracy, despite their somewhat lackluster reputation among the MSM and even the alt. media on the Internet.`

You are right and with that British accent, it could be a hit.

Wikipedia says he's gay.

Kevin Spacey playing Mike Huckabee? Gandalf playing Paul? Its clearly a hoax, I mean come on. It seems more like wishful thinking. I mean a mainstream movie would be great for the attention but I just don't think that is true at all. Anyone could something on Wikipedia. Until there are a few more sources I will say it's fake or just a rumor. No credibility at least until a director is announced, not rumored.

There is only one author for the article, and I have asked him three times now to provide a source. If he doesn't provide one, the article will be tagged by someone for deletion and will be deleted. Even if it is true (incredibly unlikely) the article would be deleted without sources.

Well, he responded. It could be legitimate, or he could just be stretching this out as long as possible.

Hmm, well he (she?) said that if Wiki needs to delete the article they can and that they'll repost it when they have press and IMDB confirmation. We'll see.

Wow! Regardless of whether this is true or not, Ian McKellan is THE GUY to play Ron Paul on the big screen.

To prove my point:

Play this video with the Youtube audio all the way down: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=43sbtkQM6zc

While simultaneously listening to the "Ron Paul excerpts" mp3: http://www.ronpaulaudio.com/

Perfect! Lol!

If Break the Matrix is so big...why coudn't they produce a movie about the Revolution. I think we should all be cast as extras for 100 dollars a day. It would make a lot of dough. Should it be a made for tv movie series...or a box office feature film? So much more could be covered if it was a mini series. Tones (who would play sean hannity though ...snowballs anyone?)
