Sam Rockwell has been cast as George W. Bush in Adam McKay's biopic of former U.S. vice president Dick Cheney.
Christian Bale will portray Cheney in the film, which will also feature Steve Carell, Amy Adams and Bill Pullman.
The project revolves around Cheney's rise as a business man at multinational corporation Halliburton after avoiding military serve in the Vietnam War, to becoming President Bush's sidekick, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Carell will play former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld while Adams has been cast as Cheney’s wife, Lynne.
Filming is slated to start later this month.
Will Ferrell and Brad Pitt are among the project's producers. Ferrell famously imitated Bush on Saturday Night Live.
