Josh Brolin is George W. Bush

Here is the first picture of Josh Brolin as George W. Bush and Elizabeth Banks as the First Lady Laura Bush! The pair is featured on the cover of this week’s cover of Entertainment Weekly for their new film W.

The GWB biopic will chronicle the life and presidency of the 43rd President of the United States of America. Bush is reportedly portrayed in the film as a foul-mouthed, reformed drunk obsessed with baseball, Saddam Hussein and the conflicted relationship with his dad.

Directing is Oliver Stone, whose film credits include Nixon and JFK. He loves them presidential movies!

Here’s the rest of the cast: Thandie Newton as National Security Advisor turned secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, Ioan Gruffudd as Tony Blair, Rob Corddry as Ari Fleischer, James Cromwell as George Herbert Walker Bush, Ellen Burstyn as Barbara Bush and Jeffrey Wright as General Colin Powell.
