W could have a Dick Cheney
W is close to a new cast member, Vice President Dick Chaney could well be Richard Dreyfuss. That means all the main characters would be cast, with Josh Brolin playing President Bush, Thandie Newton as Condoleezza Rice and Elizabeth Banks playing Laura Bush.
The Hollywood Reporter also says that the film has been given a waiver by the Screen Actors Guild, meaning filming can start this month. Negotiations are still ongoing between actors unions and the studios. I like the idea of Richard Dreyfuss playing Cheney. Should be a meaty part with some of those press conference on the Iraq conflict.
