It’s set to open during Thanksgiving weekend and Anne Hathaway has already drummed up some major Oscar buzz for her performance (she was nominated in 2008 for Best Actress for Rachel Getting Married). I really love Jake Gyllenhaal and I hope this is a grown-up enough performance to get the Academy’s attention again (he was nominated for Best Supporting Actor for Brokeback Mountain in 2005). I also really love Oliver Platt. He seems to be showing up in little supporting roles all over the place lately. I’m so glad. If you haven’t seen it, you should see the 90s road-trip/rom-com Michael, it’s one of Platt’s best performances.
Bob Zelnick: You gonna shake his hand?
James Reston, Jr.: Am I gonna shake… are you kidding me? After everything that prick’s done to this country? I’m not gonna shake his hand.
Frost: May I present Bob Zelnick, my executive editor?
Nixon: How do you do?
Bob Zelnick: Pleasure, Mr. President.
Frost: And Jim Reston, one of my researchers.
Nixon: Pleasure to meet you, Mr. Reston.
James Reston, Jr.: Mr. President.
Bob Zelnick: Wow. That was devastating, withering.
James Reston, Jr.: Fuck off.
