Giamatti does Rove?

Paul Giamatti A few days ago, we told you about the cast for Oliver Stone's upcoming biopic on George W. Bush - Josh Brolin as big dog W., Elizabeth Banks as Laura Bush, James Cromwell as elder Bush and Ellen Burstyn as Barbsie Bush. Recently, NY Mag dropped some scoopage that master thesp Paul Giamatti is currently in talks for a role in the film. NY Mag surmises that Giamatti's likely up for the role of Karl Rove, which makes sense, but the guy's such a talented mofo, he could be playing pretty much anyone. And I'm including any female characters. Giamatti is currently helping establish an independent nation as the titular character in HBO's "John Adams" mini-series, can next be heard in Rob Zombie's animated horror action dramedy THE HAUNTED WORLD OF EL SUPERBEASTO and is currently filming the Tony Gilroy directed drama/thriller DUPLICITY.

Extra Tidbit: If the above news is true, this would be the sixth time Giamatti plays a real life person. In addition to "John Adams", he portrayed Bob Zmuda in MAN ON THE MOON, Harvey Pekar in AMERICAN SPLENDOR, Joe Gould in CINDERELLA MAN and of course, he was Pig Vomit (who cares what his real name was) in PRIVATE PARTS.

*covers face and shakes head* Ugh...

...I SERIOUSLY just have no idea why this is is being made...and by OLIVER STONE, of all people. And I'm not even a fan of his movies (yeah, I know, I suck)! But seriously, *what good can come out of making a movie ABOUT Bush and Co.?* It's rival only to a movie about Mark David Chapman in terms of how sick and twisted a movie's subject can be--oops, and that's happening now, too!

But to be fair, I don't actually know what the movie will be ABOUT

But to be fair, I don't actually know what the movie will be ABOUT yet, so I'll keep neutral on this for now.

Madsen as Clinton

I'd love to hear that Michael Madsen is going to play Bill Clinton. I betting there's a small chance this might happen since Madsen was in The Doors. It's probably more likely that Clinton won't be in the movie at all and if he is it'll be stock footage like the ex-prezes in Nixon.

PERFECT!

Never mind if we really need a Bush Jr. biopic just yet, but Giamatti and Cromwell are made for these roles.
