    Sam Rockwell is joining Christian Bale in Cheney, Adam McKay’s biopic of former vice president Dick Cheney.

    Rockwell is in final negotiations to add his name to the call sheet that already includes Steve Carell, Amy Adams and Bill Pullman for the drama from Annapurna.

    Bale is portraying the titular character in a story that chronicles Cheney avoiding military service in the Vietnam War, his rise to CEO of the multinational corporation Halliburton and finally becoming what some have called the most powerful U.S. vice president ever to hold office.

    Carell has been cast as Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, while Adams is playing Cheney’s wife, Lynne.

    Rockwell will play Cheney’s boss, President George W. Bush, who steered the nation through the attacks of 9/11, the events that allowed Cheney to exercise his power when it came to fighting terrorism.

    The project is aiming for a production start in September.

    I just hope they depict this time in his life accurately:

    I volunteer to play his heart transplant donor, as long as I get to say "Go Fuck Yourself" instead of giving him my heart.
  4. He already played the role of uneducated president in Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, so he should easily nail this role. ;)
