Sam Rockwell Tells 'Ellen' He 'Obsessed' Over George W. Bush To Prepare for 'Vice' Role!

Sam Rockwell stops by The Ellen DeGeneres Show, airing on Thursday (December 13), and explains how he embodied former President George W. Bush in the highly anticipated film Vice!

“I just kind of did what Christian [Bale] did, I obsessed and listened to him and watched him on talk shows,” the 50-year-old Golden Globe nominee told Ellen. “The Kimmel interview was very useful. Lots of interviews, just like listening to him over and over again for months.”

Sam also talked about sporting a shaved head for his role portraying famed Broadway director-choreographer Bob Fosse in an upcoming series, and he shows off his impressive lasso skills.
