That Sucks: HBO takes on the 2008 election

Election, the last good movie about an election.

Election, the last good movie about an election.

Kittens, sometimes things just suck. Like this: HBO is making a movie about the 2008 election. At first glance, you might think “Hey, that sounds awesome!” But wait to start making “Yes We Can Has HBO”-related jokes, because I am about to reveal the studio’s casting wish list:

John McCain: Ed Harris
Sarah Palin: Tina Fey
Hilary Clinton: Edie Falco
The Obamas: Will Smith and Halle Berry …?!

What, did all of the real people get to pick? Come on, HBO! Why don’t you just cast Beyoncé and Raven-Symoné as Sasha and Malia while you’re at it? If Michele Obama gets Halle Berry, you could throw Hilary a bone and give her Reese Witherspoon–she already has the experience to back up the performance.

Here’s a slice of wisdom from one movie-loving history buff to you: Movies about momentous historical events are NEVER good unless they are made AT LEAST 20-30+ years post said inspirational event.

Hope? Nope. That, my friends, sucks.
