Who Will Play Sergey and Larry in the Google Movie?

Presumably because the imminent success of October's Facebook movie, The Social Network, will make geeky comp-sci students the next vampires, Ken Auletta's recent book Googled: The End of the World As We Know It — which tells the thrilling story of how Sergey Brin and Larry Page invented the search engine in their garage as PhD students — is being adapted for the screen, reports Deadline's Mike Fleming. According to a producer for the project: "The heart of the movie is their wonderful edict, don't be evil. At a certain point in the evolution of a company so big and powerful, there are a million challenges to that mandate. Can you stay true to principles like that as you become as rich and powerful as that company has become? The intention is to be sympathetic to Sergey and Larry, and hopefully the film will be as interesting as the company they created." So who the heck will play Sergey and Larry? Jay Baruchel and Martin Starr? Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner? Have better ideas? You know where to leave them.
