Casting 'Too Big To Fail': Which Celebs Should Appear In The Movie Of The Financial Crisis? (PHOTOS)

Huffington Post     First Posted: 05/25/10 06:12 AM ET   Updated: 05/25/11 04:55 PM ET

It was just a matter of time before Hollywood got its hooks into the financial crisis.

HBO recently announced that it had bought the rights to Andrew Ross Sorkin's sprawling bestseller "Too Big To Fail: The Inside Story Of How Wall Street And Washington Fought To Save The System -- And Themselves."

The news led to a very important question: who would play the Wall Street titans that became household names during the tumult of the last few years? Casting debates made their way to Twitter -- where financial bloggers like The Epicurean Dealmaker and Twitter-loving writers like Heidi Moore -- chimed in with their choices.

We took some of the best picks from the web and combined them with our own to come up with what we think is the the definitive cast. Our methodology: we considered natural resemblance, acting chops and, admittedly, a certain comedic charm.

Check out the cast below:
