Casting Too Big To Fail

As previously mentioned, HBO has purchased the rights to Andrew Ross Sorkin’s Too Big To Fail. Shooting starts this fall and the role of Hank Paulson has just gone to William Hurt. John Mack has graciously stated that the role of the Morgan Stanley CEO should go to Bobby DeNiro and for his buddy Blankfein? He sees Danny DeVito.**

That still leaves a lot of parts up for grabs. Who are we feeling for Tim Geithner? Ben Bernanke? Erin Callan? Jamie? Vickles? What about Dick “Fuck it, just hold me” Fuld, a part that will necessitate an actor with a lot of range? What about the hobo Paulson knocks off in the collectors edition of TBTF? There’s much work to be done here.

**Who should do the role as Frank, playing LB.

    They fucked up big time. They should have cast Kenny Powers to play Hank Paulson.

    Hoping it won’t be too boring to watch because it’s too shitty for theaters – not that it matters because if I see this I’ll be too drunk to remember.

    I intended to post you the very small note to help say thanks a lot the moment again just for the remarkable concepts you have documented in this article. It was really shockingly open-handed of people like you to allow openly all that a few people would have supplied for an e book to help make some profit on their own, primarily since you could possibly have done it in the event you decided. These solutions likewise worked to provide a easy way to know that the rest have a similar passion the same as my very own to grasp good deal more with reference to this matter. I believe there are a lot more pleasurable periods up front for individuals who take a look at your website.
