W. Casting

It seems like every day now, we get a new cast member for Oliver Stone's upcoming W. to be released in 2009. So far, we all know Josh Brolin is playing George W., Elizabeth Banks is playing Laura, Thandie Newton is Condi, Ioan Gruffudd is Tony Blair, James Cromwell is H.W., Ellen Burstyn is Barb, Rob Corddry is Ari Fleischer, and Jeffrey Wright is Colin Powell.

Even if the film doesn't end up being any good, I'm still loving the casting process of this film and it seems like I'm not alone (just check the IMDB boards). So, my question is:

Who do you think should play the other parts? Cheney? Rove? Maybe even Kerry?

I'm very excited about this movie too. The cast thus far is wonderful. But I still think Thandie Newton is too damn gorgeous to play Condi Rice. But hey, it's Hollywood, after all.

As for Cheney, he should be played by George Ross (Donald Trump's adviser on "The Apprentice") and Rove should be played by Philip Seymour Hoffman. I don't know about Kerry, though.
