Richard Dreyfuss to Play Cheney in "W"

The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that Richard Dreyfuss has been cast to play Dick Cheney in Oliver Stone's upcoming biopic, W.

I don't have much to say about this other than to pass along the news. But I think this is perfect casting. I thought this was just going to be wishful thinking on the part of Jeff Wells, who has been advocating this for a while. But now that it's reality I can't think of anyone better suited for the job.

Dreyfuss will be fabulous as Cheney.

Yep. It's perfect casting. I probably wouldn't have thought of it if Jeff Wells hadn't brought it up, but once he did I couldn't imagine anyone else doing it.
