I had no idea who was playing Cheney until the end credits. Fell out of my seat. He is brilliant.

I wonder how much of that is makeup and digital effects or did he modify himself dramatically, like he has done in the past?

Damn ! Reading your comments I started to watch the trailer trying to figure who was playing Cheney. I thought it was Chevy Chase.

Rockwell as W was a shock, as well.

I really like their choice of pop music for the trailer. It's by The Killers, I think.

I'm vaguely intrigued by this movie. Cheney is one of those people with whom I do not agree, do not support, cannot even remotely imagine myself "on the same team" -- and yet there is the ghost of a grudging respect, as I often find I feel for people who do their jobs without apology.

Mr. Spock, you misunderstand us. We can be against him and admire him all at the same time.

- Illogical.

Totally!

Dick Cheney, Lynne Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld... So we've got the trailer with the villains of the piece out of the way....

According to an article I read, he gained 40 lbs for the
role and had his head shaved eyebrows plucked daily.
