RDJ probably has the most life experience closest to Hugh's out of the list of actors.

RDJ would be great! For some reason, I would also love to see someone like James Marsden in that role.

I would say Leo, except after watching Iron Man RDJ would totally ace the role too. I think Leo for a young and RDJ for an older version.

Leo, for sure - he is such a playboy in real life...

Wow it would have to be a really good script to get any of these on board, but i heard like two years ago they were considering Hugh Jackman.

Robert Downey, Jr.! Leo could do it, I guess, but he has already done a huge biopic. Tom Cruise would be a poor decision...

RDJ would definitely pull it off and I would definitely watch it! Tom Cruise I fear would be to manic for the role most of his roles have freak out moments and Hugh is a laidback guy...

He'd have to drop some lbs, but Leo. Or Downey. No on Cruise. You who kinda looks like a young Heff in a hotter way? James McAvoy.

I think Leo would be great, but he might be too conventionally good looking to play Hef.

Most definitely RDJ. He's got the talent and smarminess to pull it off. He is too HAWT to play Hef but that's okay.
