Dubya Debut

It takes about a third of this trailer to realize that this movie is indeed Oliver Stone's upcoming look at the current President of the United States of America, W. And then "What a Wonderful World" kicks in, and you realize ... ohmygod, this is comedy?! And then you realize, "Of course, that makes perfect sense."

Josh Brolin as George W. Bush heads the all-star cast playing the all-star cast of characters, including Elizabeth Banks as First Lady Laura, James Cromwell as daddy George, Ellen Burstyn as mamma Barbara and Richard Dreyfuss as veep Dick Cheney. Oh yeah, and then there's Toby Jones as Karl Rove, Ioan Gruffudd as Tony Blair, Scott Glenn as Donald Rumsfeld, Thandie Newton as Condoleezza Rice and Jeffrey Wright as Colin Powell.

W. hits theaters October 17 ... right before election time. Oh, Oliver, you scamp.
