Obsessed With Film has the scoop on Elizabeth Banks’ casting in a new biopic on President George W. Bush. Apparently she’s slated to appear as Laura Bush, the First Lady.
Don’t get me wrong – Laura Bush is by no means an ugly woman, but holy crap…casting super-hottie Elizabeth Banks as the conservatively-dressed First Lady seems a bit of a stretch. If you don’t think so, consider this: she’s moving from starring as someone making homemade porn, to playing the First Lady of the United States. Doesn’t that seem a little unbalanced?
Check out the pictures below for further proof, and check out Obsessed With Film for more casting news for the George W. biopic, titled simply W.. The Oliver Stone flick is scheduled for 2009.
