Or could it make a star of an unknown young actor?
Earlier this year Programming Chief David Mott told TV Tonight, “The script is now finalised, it jumps off the page and we love it. Now we’re in the process of casting, and we’ve put it far and wide in terms of the getting the calibre of a marquee name.
“But remember you’re talking about a young Julian Assange.”
Despite the right hair colour, it isn’t expected to be Josh Thomas, who is comedian rather than actor.
“I can’t see Josh Thomas as Julian Assange!” Mott laughed.
