SAATCHI SCREEN GEMS

Published on .

The Saatchi saga-complete with thrilling plots of greed, deception and megalomania-is probably the ad industry's most-watched drama. In fact, Advertising Age has learned that the William Morris Agency is actually looking for Maurice Saatchi-perhaps with movie script in tow.

With such opportunity for genius, Ad Age editors turned to our readers to cast the brothers Saatchi, and along the way, to name the sure-to-be blockbuster flick.

Subscribers to our Daily Fax responded to an instant fax poll and dashed off truly inspired casts-some famous, some not so famous. Although Michael Caine and Elliott Gould seem to be shoo-ins for the roles of Maurice and Charles, any director would have a field day choosing from such a promising bunch.

Here's just a sample of our favorites:

Woody Allen and David Letterman in "Middlefinger"

Michael Caine and John Travolta in "Pulp Bullshit"

Eric Roberts and Mickey Rourke in "Betrayal"

Dustin Hoffman and Bill Clinton in "Natural Born Thieves"

Woody Allen and Charles Grodin in "A Midwinter's Night Advertising Comedy"

Elmer Fudd and Wile E. Coyote in "Th-th-th-that's All, Folks"

Grant Shaud and Al Pacino in "Ted Bates: Where Are You?"

Michael Caine and Stephen Rea in "Kiss My Arse"

Charlie Sheen and Emilio Estevez in "Chuck & Mo's Bogus Adventure"

Jerry Lewis and Dean Martin in "Between Iraq & a Hard Place"

Woody Allen and Leonard Nimoy in "Purple Rose of London"
