I’m told Frank Langella, who’s so brilliant as Tricky Dick in Peter Morgan’s Frost/Nixon play, is going to snag the movie version as well. This means Warren Beatty won’t be playing the role of the disgraced President interviewed by David Frost. (I already knocked down the Internet rumor that Imagine’s Ron Howard had a deal, or was close to a deal, with Warren.) Smart to go with the guy who originated the role in London and on Broadway. That almost never happens in Hollywood.
