My daughter and I saw the movie of Ready Player One last night. I really enjoyed it. One thing that stood out was how the villain of the movie, Nolan Sorrento (played by Ben Mendelsohn), seems to be a dead ringer for Scientology leader David Miscavige, complete with tight-fitting suit. They even have the same brash, gravelly voices (Mendelsohn is Australian and affected a North American accent in the movie). Coincidence?
Am I the only one that thought Ben Mendelsohn's #ReadyPlayerOne villain was a sly swipe at Scientology's David Miscavige? With IOI's indentured servitude similar to Sea Org's billion year contract? Am I giving this movie too much credit? pic.twitter.com/7Q9OWf0oVN
