And The Role Of Ben Bernanke In HBO’s Too Big To Fail Goes To…Paul Giamatti

I…what? Was this Alan Greenspan’s idea (who suggested his part be played by David Hasselhoff)? Other interesting casting calls:

• Tony Shalhoub — John Mack (he’d wanted Robert DeNiro, so, awk)
• James Woods — Dick Fuld

More confirmed names:

• William Hurt — Hank Paulson
• Topher Grace — Jim Wilkinson
• Cynthia Nixon — Michele Davis
• Billy Crudup — Timothy Geithner
• Ed Asner — Warren Buffett
• Kathy Baker — Wendy Paulson
• Dan Hedaya — Barney Frank
• Joey Slotnick — Dan Jester
• Michael O’Keefe — Chris Flowers
• Ayad Akhtar — Neel Kashkari

    James Woods as Lehman Brothers? That will be a fairly challenging role. Of course, in high school I played the industrial revolution in a school play which wasn’t easy.

  2. darling NKI says:

    But who will play ARS?

  3. TTBoy says:

    With Ron Jeremy as “Cassano”.

  4. You Know I'm Right says:

    Hilary Swank.

  5. APersonFamiliarWithTheMatter says:

    … and Wallace Shawn as Lloyd Blankfein …

    I said it once and I’ll say it again:

    HP: Bruce Willis
    DF: Robert de Niro
    JD: Mark Harmon
    LB: Gollum
    VP: Kal Penn
    KL: Christopher Walken
    JM: Dan Hedaya
    BB: Jack Nicholson (w/beard)
    GWB: Leslie Nielsen
    DC: Larry David
    TG: NPH

  7. Potable Alpha says:

    …wait…Danny Noonan as JC Flowers? In that case, Ken Lewis should be played by Rodney Dangerfield (RIP).

    I won’t be satisfied unless they rewrite history to include a “John Galt” speech which dominates the airwaves — hopefully written and performed by Alan Greenspan.

    Look at movie Against the Ropes and Man who wasn´t there. Tony Shalhoub is super for roles like this, I think it can fit it to him.
