Serious Actors Join 'W'

Oliver Stone's George W. biopic has taken one more step in its quest to become a near-parody of itself, adding two more unlikely yet somehow completely expected cast members: Ellen Burstyn and James Cromwell as Ma and Pa Bush. Like Stone's casting of Anthony Hopkins in the role of Nixon, and the more recent acquisition of Josh Brolin as W. himself, these casting choices just scream "I'm making a serious movie with actors, not impressionists--oh, and one hottie."

Don't worry, Dana Carvey. Maybe you can still get a cameo as Perot.
