Oliver Platt joins Frost/Nixon

OliverPlatt.jpgOliver Platt is a superb actor, and one that belongs to that "always a support" crowd. Next he's set to appear in the Frost/Nixon film as the Executive Editor of the interviews, Bob Zelnick, according to The Hollywood Reporter, and that could well be a good thing, depending on how much of a role it is.

I'm a big fan of Platt, he always turns out a great performance and is so good to watch on screen, but he never seems to get the big roles of which he is worthy, don't you think? I'd like to see him get something more.

For those of you who have seen the Frost/Nixon stage play, what sort of role does the Executive Editor play? Does all the action rely on the interviews themselves? I would assume that the film is going to concentrate much more on the behind the scenes intrigue than the stage play could or would, and so this might allow us to see more of Oliver Platt. Let's hope so anyway.
