Bob Harris's "The International Bank of Bob"

Bob Harris's books include Who Hates Whom (2007), a pocket guide to global conflict; Beyond Caprica (2010), a mock travel guide to the 12 colonies of the Caprica/Battlestar Galactica universe; Prisoner of Trebekistan (2006), a memoir of 13 Jeopardy! games over 10 years; and the recently released The International Bank of Bob: Connecting Our Worlds One $25 Kiva Loan at a Time.

Here he dreamcasts an adaptation of The International Bank of Bob:
The Bank of Bob is a memoir, so you're asking who should play me. My vanity is so happy it's almost vibrating.

Ideally: Matt Damon, because he's already involved in poverty alleviation, or possibly Brad Pitt, given his charity toward New Orleans in the wake of Katrina.

More accurately: Paul Giamatti, because he is formed in the shape of a writer. Second choice: the Michelin Man.
