You know, one day I will learn to NOT be surprised where Hollywood is concerned. I have a feeling that day is not in my immediate future.
John Cusack Developing Rush Limbaugh Biopic
No, I’m not making this up. Ultra-liberal making a movie about an ultra-conservative. And you just know how that will turn out.
The project, as first reported by the AP, has a working title of Rush and is being produced by Cusack’s own production company, New Crime Productions.
A shooting script is nearing completion, with the liberal Cusack, 46, set to step into the unlikely role of the 61-year-old conservative firebrand.
I can see the resemblance.
I’m hoping the ghost of Stan Winston will be guiding the make-up crew.
I think I know why the interest in a Limbaugh movie now, though.
Limbaugh has fanned the flames of controversy throughout his three-decade career, none more so than in February, when he called Georgetown University Law Center student Sandra Fluke a “slut” and a “prostitute” for advocating for insurance coverage of contraceptives. The comments resulted in widespread outrage and led to 45 companies pulling their ads from his syndicated program, The Rush Limbaugh Show.
He said she behaved like a slut and a prostitute. And by definition, he was being kind. Oh, and he lost 45 companies, but ended up having to fight off hundreds more wanting the contracts for ads on his show.
I can’t wait to hear what Limbaugh says about this. That will be epic
