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
