Quotes

Dan Butler: I think you should get someone like Philip Seymour Hoffman to do something like this. I mean this is a great supporting actor and people know who he is. And that's who you should get for this.
Phil Leirness: Yeah, but, I mean, you know, frankly he's a little too well known. It sort of defeats the purpose. You know, I mean he's starting to play lead roles. You're more of, you know ...
Dan Butler: I'm more of a known unknown.

12 August 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Filmmakers Phil Leirness (Spectres) and Dan Butler (Frasier) straddle genres with this political-thriller/comedy, wickedly satirizing the politics of both Washington DC and Hollywood. Although set in the Bush era, this film examines the timeless themes of corruption, conspiracy, and obsession. Butler plays a politically liberal actor who seeks to skewer Karl Rove in a one man show, but instead falls in love with him. The realism of his performance is frighteningly brilliant. The film is so cleverly constructed that lefties like me may see it as a scathing attack on the right, but I suspect Republicans may enjoy it equally as an attack on Hollywood's "liberal elite." Includes delightful cameos by Alec Baldwin and the real Karl Rove.
