Who in the world could play the lead, Ignatius Reilly? In the past, all the funny "overweight" actors have tried to get a film made - John Belushi, John Candy. As late as 2010, Will Ferrell and Jack Black tried. I think an unknown might be best - someone with no previous image baggage.

Your total ignorance of that which you profess to teach merits the death penalty. I doubt whether you would know that St. Cassian of Imola was stabbed to death by his students with their styli. His death, a martyr's honorable one, made him a patron saint of teachers.
Pray to him, you deluded fool, you "anyone for tennis?" golf-playing, cocktail-quaffing, pseudo-pedant, for you do indeed need a heavenly patron.
Although your days are numbered, you will not die as a martyr–for you further no holy cause–but as the total ass which you really are.
