Oliver Stone, continuing his trend of not-at-all glamorizing his George W. Bush biopic, has cast Thandie Newton and Ioan Gruffudd as Condoleeza Rice and Tony Blair, respectively. As you may recall, they join a cast that already confusingly includes Elizabeth Banks as Laura Bush and Josh Brolin as W himself.

Clearly the announcement of Jessicas Alba and Biel as the Bush daughters can't be far behind, but who do you think Stone will go with for Cheney? I'd say smart money is on a bald-capped George Clooney.
