Well, looky here, someone went and "leaked" the trailer for "W.", Oliver Stone's upcoming film about our commander in chief, onto YouTube. The cast is choice: Josh Brolin as Dubya, James Cromwell as Poppy Bush, Ellen Burstyn as Barbara Bush, Thandie Newton as Condi Rice, Scott Glenn as Rummy, Jeffrey Wright as Colin Powell, Toby Jones (the other Capote) as Karl Rove, and -- the piece de resistance -- Richard Dreyfuss as Dick Cheney. Interestingly, it appears to be a comedy, one about how a privileged but fairly useless family black sheep might find gainful employment in the Oval Office. "W." comes out October 17, a few weeks before the election.
