It’s Hard Out Here for a Sociologist

Sudhir Venkatesh’s book Gang Leader for a Day has been optioned for a film to be directed by Craig Brewer, who wrote and directed Hustle & Flow.

Who should play Sudhir? And J.T., and Ms. Bailey?

    Kal Penn has played every Indian-American (and a lot of ???-Americans) on tv or film for the last 5 years. He will with near certainty get casted as this one.

    Sudhir should play himself. He’s pretty dreamy.
