Oliver Stone directs controversial movies, hangs out with Fidel Castro, looks like Saddam Hussein and is one of those leftist Hollywood elites that contributes thousands of dollars to the Democratic party, so of course he's endorsing Ron Paul…
In an interview with Rock Cellar magazine, Stone was asked if an economic collapse would lead to the fall of the American "empire."
"I think it’s a given," Stone said. "There’s no way that we can continue this spending spree. In fact, I think in many ways the most interesting candidate –I'd even vote for him if he was running against Obama — is Ron Paul. Because he's the only one of anybody who's saying anything intelligent about the future of the world."
The Republican party has gone so far right they are indistinguishable from the far left. President Obama, you may need to worry about splitting your base. But then again, maybe not. These two may have more in common than we think.
Good news Democrats: Your Oliver Stone "problem" has just become the Republican's problem!

The first reviews for Oliver Stone's W. — his biopic of George W. Bush — are in. And it turns out it's an Oliver Stone film…
Oliver Stone's unusual and inescapably interesting "W." feels like a rough draft of a film it might behoove him to remake in 10 or 15 years…
As the film continues to bounce back and forth, between the Iraq-dominated presidency and George W.'s unlikely transformation from ne'er-do-well rich kid to born-again Christianity, sobriety, ambition and resolve, it occasionally delivers intimations of looming tragedy, or at least of history that didn't have to unfold as it did.
But the film is unable to achieve any aims higher than as a sort of engaging pop-history pageant and amateur, if not inapt, psychological evaluation, due to the unavoidable lack of perspective and a final act that has yet to be written.
I wouldn't care if Variety said it was the worst piece of garbage ever — or worse, as bad as Nixon — I'm gonna watch the shit out of this movie. No doubt about it.
I always think of Oliver Stone as the most brilliant Neanderthal ever to paint a movie on a cave wall. He has an incredibly myopic and simple view of the world, but he's usually amazingly entertaining in explaining it.

As you may already know, Josh Brolin and Jeffrey Wright — who recently completed rolls as George W. Bush and Colin Powell in Oliver Stone's newest overwrought, psychobabble biopic, W. — were arrested in L.A. when a bar brawl broke out during the film's wrap party.
New reports show that the two actors may have been brutalized by the arresting police officers…
Josh Brolin and Jeffrey Wright, who were arrested this past weekend at a Shreveport, La. bar, were pepper sprayed and tased by cops. And, we're told, police went on a vulgar rant — and portions were caught on cell phone video.
Wow, Brolin and Wright must really be delivering realistic portrayals to elicit that kind of reaction. I'm getting excited for this movie.
Before people start getting mad at me, let me just say that I'm kidding around. Of course this is a terribly unfortunate and disgusting incident of police misdoing. It's a travesty of justice.
I mean, how can they beat up Jeffrey Wright when Richard Dreyfuss — who played Dick Cheney — was standing right there next to him and walked away scott free?!

The CC Insider is reporting that New York Magazine is reporting that the MTV Movies Blog is reporting that Daily Show alum Rob Corddry will be taking on the role of fellow bald guy and former White House press secretary Ari Fleischer in the upcoming Oliver Stone fan-fiction film W…
Imagine if say Tina Fey was cast in a dramatic movie as Abraham Lincoln. It wouldn't really make a lot of sense because they don't look much alike and whatnot, but it'd still somehow be mind-blowingly awesome, right? This is kind of like that.
I guess it is kind of a strange casting choice. But Stone has always gone against the grain in his casting choices. Remember when he cast Colin Farrell as a dude in Alexander?
Serving as the administration’s official spokesman from 2001 to 2003, Fleischer was propelled into the national spotlight after the terrorist attacks of September 11, and the ensuing invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq. Recognized as much for his glasses and baldness as he was for his passionate and sometimes argumentative defense of his boss, Fleischer would also find himself linked to the CIA scandal involving Valerie Plame — itself a current Hollywood initiative.
So, I guess it'll be a non-speaking role. Too bad.
