Who would have believed it - Robin Williams' (not even qualified as s-f) is the Foundation Trilogy. And his favorite character is The Mule.

Did not see that coming.

I've also read that Paul Krugman grew up wanting to be Hari Seldon. As I , the abilities of the "social sciences" to predict and control human behavior, at both the individual and population level, have proven far weaker than Asimov (and Heinlein) anticipated.
