At Tuesday’s world premiere of Oliver Stone’s W., we asked Elizabeth Banks what movie character reminded her of John McCain, using Jon Stewart’s comparison of Sarah Palin to Jodi Foster in Nell as a guide. “Richard Dreyfuss in What About Bob?,” she said. “He’s a little angry, and everybody bothers him.” And if this campaign were a movie, Jesse Bradford envisions Will Smith as Barack Obama, and hopes John Goodman can “lose a bunch of weight and play John McCain.”
