How Hal Holbrook could win an Oscar in one easy step

Hire him in the title role in Oliver Stone's BAR. It'd be a prequel to W. Biographical roles are shoe-ins for Academy awards. No offense intended to Mrs. Bush or Mr. Holbrook, but it's a sure thing.

They’re making a film about the Browning Automatic Rifle?

Wow, and I thought Guy Gardner's thought processes were weird.

I understood what he meant almost immediately.

Should I be concerned?

Not so random as some thought, then. The resemblance is uncanny.

I also understood almost immediately what he meant.
If we're thinking alike, should the world be concerned?

I'm no fan of the elder Mrs. Bush, but if the whole point of this thread is only "ha, ha, lady looks like a dude"... then I gotta hit ya with a big ol'

Re: How Hal Holbrook could win an Oscar in one easy step

Anyway, it's not Barbara Bush's fault. She looked like herself first. Hal Holbrook's just going to have to change.

David Morse's look changed substantially in the 1990s. Now if not today, he looked remarkably like Bill Clinton. I kept expecting him to be cast as Clinton someday.
