A movie adaptation of ride-sharing tech giant Uber seems inevitable after CEO Travis Kalanick stepped down Tuesday. Scroll through for our dream cast and a few choices for lead role of Kalanick.
Travis Kalanick played by Dave Franco
We think the younger Franco brother can definitely tackle the role of executive jerk.
Travis Kalanick played by Jeremy Renner
Renner would be another good option - he already has Kalanick's perma-squint nailed.
Travis Kalanick played by Jeremy Piven
Our next possibility for the ex-CEO is Piven. Casting him as Kalanick would be like "Entourage" meets "Mr. Selfridge."
Travis Kalanick played by Miles Teller
Teller is definitely able to play a full-of-himself bro, and his squint game is A+.
Travis Kalanick played by Adam Devine
We think the "Workaholics" and "Pitch Perfect" star could bring a good amount of "bro" to the role.
Susan Fowler played by Dakota Johnson
Fowler wrote a blog post
that set off Uber's crazy chain of events and subsequent investigation into the company. Johnson is a total look-alike.
Emil Michael played by Rami Malek
Malek is very skilled at playing odd, creepy characters. That makes him a good fit to play Michael, who quit as Uber’s VP of Business amid complaints of harassing and sexist behavior.
Eric Holder played by Courtney B. Vance
We know Vance can play a stickler lawyer after his performance in "American Crime Story: The People vs O.J. Simpson." We'd love to see him investigate Uber as the former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder.
Arianna Huffington played by Melissa Leo
The media executive and board member was the target of a sexist remark from Bonderman that led to his resignation. Huffington was on the subcommittee that analyzed Eric Holder's report.
Liane Horsney played by Sarah Paulson
Fresh from Google, Horsney joined Uber as head of HR in January. She told USA Today
that employees' problems are "pay and pride, not sexism." We choose Paulson to play HR role.
David Bonderman played by Robert Duvall
Bonderman resigned after making a sexist remark
to Arianna Huffington during a company-wide meeting about the investigation. When Huffington suggested having more women on the board would encourage more women to join, Bonderman said "actually, what it shows is that it's much more likely to be more talking." Duvall is our pick.
Driver in dashcam video
played by Riz Ahmed
We're inspired by Ahmed's performance in "The Night Of," where he steal's his father's cab for a night. As an Uber driver, he'd be a great pick to tear apart Kalanick in the viral video
Kara Swisher played by Constance Zimmer
The tech journalist has been following Uber's controversies, and has a hand on the pulse of Silicon Valley. We think Zimmer could handle the role.
Jill Soloway to write the screenplay and Aaron Sorkin to direct.
