Prepare To Sputter In Five, Four...

The talking suits will be aghast and agog if this deal gets made. Charlie, Kev, Mark and Jeff will sputter and fume for weeks; nay, for months.

From Variety:
"Fair Game," the drama about the outing of CIA agent Valerie Plame
Wilson, has come together with Naomi Watts starring, "Mrs. and Mrs. Smith"
helmer Doug Liman directing and William Pohlad's River Road financing.

But the big question is whether Oscar-winning "Milk" star Sean Penn
will close a deal to play Ambassador Joseph Wilson.

Penn is negotiating, but no deal has closed.

Time for a Whallah! poll. Who should play Scooter Libby? Patrick Fitzgerald? Angler?


  1. For which role? He's too tall for Libby.

  2. If Peter Lorre were still alive, I'd pick him to play Scooter Libby. I think Gary Oldman would be good; he could pull off the requisite weaseliness (weaseltude?).
