Tricky Dick Returns

"Excuse me, Mr. President ... do what to your finger?"

In this intriguing first look trailer, Frank Langella eerily channels Richard Nixon in Ron Howard's upcoming film version of Frost/Nixon. Adapted by Peter Morgan (The Queen) from his Tony Award nominated drama, the film reunites the play's West End and Broadway stars Langella (who won his third Tony for this role) and Michael Sheen. Sheen plays British talk show host David Frost, who landed the interview of the century with the post-Watergate Nixon.

Kevin Bacon, Sam Rockwell and Oliver Platt also star, along with Toby Jones (as legendary Hollywood dealmaker Swifty Lazar) and Patty McCormack (yes, The Bad Seed's Rhoda Penmark) as First Lady Pat Nixon. Frost/Nixon opens December 5.
