A Confederacy of Dunces - who would you cast?

Talk about anything here. Post lifespan is 1 year.

Efforts have been made and failed to make A Confederacy of Dunces by John Kennedy Toole into a movie. Who would you cast as Ignatius Reilly? John Goodman is now too old for the part, maybe Johan Hill if he put some more weight back on and could do some character acting?

You're a troll. You're not making any contribution to the thread, you're a troll. We're guessing who trolls are. You know most users who only make jokes without trying to help are trolls? - Well I'm going home alright? EB's playing with its new guys.

I think he and Chris Farley are off the table for this :( Another interesting question, who would you have direct? Wes Anderson? The Coen Brothers? Both great choices. Tim Burton would have an interesting take on it but not sure would capture the nuances.

Nick Offerman played Ignatius in a theatrical version.

Everyone who they have previously casted to play him in a film has tied an untimely death.

He would have been perfect for that.

Maybe Joaquin Phoenix if he'd agree to put on a bunch of weight.
