Sean Penn May Play Joe Wilson: Sing along to The Plame Game

-Sean Penn Takes on Plame Game, May Play Joe Wilson-
(Congratulations Sean, Best Actor 2009 in Milk)

Breaking News

No deal has closed yet, but Variety reports that Oscar winner Sean Penn (yay!) is in negotiations to play the role of former Ambassador Joseph Wilson, husband of outed CIA agent Valerie Plame in director Doug Liman’s retelling of Plame’s story, currently known in deal-making circles as “Fair Game.”

Before you read further, click here, turn up the volume, and sing along to the lyrics of THE PLAME GAME which yours truly provided in February, 2007 when the buzz was that Scooter Libby could do the time for the crime in the Bush administration’s despicable hand in outing covert CIA agent, Valerie Plame.

Fast forward to June, 2007 and click here to sing along to “Scooter Libby Gets his Prison Number.”

And who are the other rumored casting picks?

I hope the movie gets made. And you really have an eye for casting!

2Truthy said...

Thanks, CC. I still say Lisa Kudrow would be the top pick for Plame, better Naomi Watts. I also can't think of anyone better to play Libby than James Woods.

Citizen Carrie said...

That might be a real boost for Kudrow's career, since you can't help but notice that she's been typecast into certain roles.

Too bad Lisa won't get the part. Although her best work was in Romy and Michelle, she has depth and is an intelligent actress. On the other hand, from a visual standpoint, casting her with the angular Penn could be tricky. (She would be better with my original pick, Dennis Quaid.)

If you look at the Wilsons, they are both roundish in the face. It would make more sense for Sean's wife, Robin,(Wright)to play Valerie. Her bone structure is just as striking as his, as are her acting chops.
