Six degrees of separation from George?  How about 1 degree...

"Waked, who is Egypt’s biggest international star, is a political activist and producer. His ZAD production shingle shepherded fellow Egyptian director Ibrahim El Batout’s drama “Winter of Discontent” about the events that led up to the Tahrir Square uprising.

Waked intersected with Fahmy when the journo was covering the Arab Spring in Egypt for CNN before becoming Egypt Bureau Chief for Al Jazeera English.

Waked – who played the bemused French narcotics cop in Luc Besson’s “Lucy” – is now poised to play Fahmy during his plight behind bars in the Scorpion penitentiary alongside some of the Middle East’s most hardened Al Qaeda and ISIS extremists.

Waked more recently appeared as an advisor to Mongol King Kublai Khan in TWC/Netflix TV series “Marco Polo.” His previous roles include star turns in “Syriana,” “Salmon Fishing in the Yemen,” and the BBC’s “House of Saddam” mini-series. He will also appear in upcoming Warner Bros. sci-fi action thriller “Geostorm.”

Not surprised by the book or the movie development. Fahmy had said in interviews after his release that he would probably be writing about his experience. I remember someone asking him during a press conference if a movie was made about the incarceration and trial who would Fahmy like to see play him. He joked possibly George.
