Charlie Wilson’s Movie
Thanks again to Lee Wright for pointing out that someone in Hollywood apparently has the good sense to make a movie out of George Crile’s Charlie Wilson’s War. To continue the arbitrary comparison started in my previous review of the book, I’m certain that the movie will feature more cocaine, true-life espionage and attack helicopters than, say, The Chosen.
Tom Hanks will be playing the eponymous congressman. No other casting information is available, but I hereby decree that the role of CIA-meshuganah Gust Avrakotos must be played by Harvey Keitel.
I await my check from central casting.
