Michael Sheen: the face of god

Hail to the Chief!


We’ve been speculating for a long time here about Peter Morgan’s upcoming debut as a director, The Special Relationship. We knew who would be playing Tony Blair, of course: Michael Sheen. But who would be taking on Bill Clinton? Various names were suggested. Travolta, of course, already gave us a terrific sideways look in Primary Colors. Philip Seymour Hoffman could bring the Clinton combination of piercing intellect and moral lassitude. And I’d love to see Vince Vaughn break out of his frat boy comfort zone. Now, according to Variety, the cast is coming together, and it’s great: Dennis Quaid is lined up for Clinton, with Julianne Moore as Hillary (now there’s a movie in itself).
