I don't know in what universe it would be Josh Brolin.

I'm afraid he'll play him too sympathetic.

Oh for Godsakes people, give Timothy Hutton some work already!
"Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they've been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It's an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It's a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing. ~ Muhammad Ali

W should do it himself. It'll be like a punishment in Hades, making him retrace the steps of the terrible job he did.

W should be a CGI character like Gollum in "The Lord of the Rings" - that way Alfred E Newman from Mad magazine could play him.
Now living in DC. I really have to change my name on the board.

I could see Josh Brolin as Bush. He could probably pull it off if he raised his voice a bit. Bush's voice is slightly more tenor-ish.

After all, this is the man who cast Anthony Hopkins as Nixon.

What're they going to call this?

I mean, they can't just call it "BUSH", that would imply something...entirely different than its actual meaning.

I'd go for 'Dumb and Dumber...and Dumbest."

I think Anthony Hopkins is a great actor. However, in Nixon, he was doing an imitation rather than becoming the character. It was like watching a Rich Little impersonation.

Mark Wahlberg. They both project the same level of intelligence.

Timothy Bottoms has made it a specialty and has considerable experience.

Why would anyone give Oliver Stone money to make a film anyway? I would have thought his credibility was pretty well shot by now.

And does anyone care what Oliver Stone has to say about George W. Bush?
