The latest actor tasked with the role, however, is really not what we were expecting.
Director Adam McKay has a big-name Dick Cheney biopic in the works called Backseat, starring Christian Bale as the former Vice President, and reportedly co-starring Amy Adams and Steve Carell as Lynne Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld, respectively.
Backseat, which has yet to enter production, recently added an important character in the Bush administration’s tale: George W. Bush himself!
The actor slated to play Bush is Sam Rockwell, best known for his roles in Moon and Confessions of a Dangerous Mind. For reference, that’s him on the right (below).
Do you see the resemblance? Don’t @ me, but if we’re going on looks, Bradley Cooper shares something of a likeness with the politician.
Anyway, although Rockwell’s an unexpected choice for the role, with his acting skills we’re sure he’ll nail it.
