TLP: To Be Fair About It, He Could Just Be Really Stoned

john edwards sex scandal
Wait, wasn't there already a movie about the John Edwards sex scandal? You know, the one where the failed presidential candidate is "graphically performing for the camera"?

Oh well, limited distribution apparently. Not to worry.

Want to see John Edwards’s rise and fall made in to a major motion picture? We don’t either! But it’s happening anyway.

Screenwriter Aaron Sorkin has bought the rights to “The Politician,” a tell-all penned by former Edwards aide Andrew Young.

Sorkin, best known for “The West Wing,” plans to write, produce and direct the film.

“This is a first-hand account of an extraordinary story filled with motivations, decisions and consequences that would have lit Shakespeare up,” said Sorkin. “There’s much more to Andrew’s book than what has been reported, and I’m grateful that he’s trusting me with it.”
I guess we'll see how Sorkin is doing with his, uh, "travel issues" when he starts casting. Bad sign if Martin Sheen gets the lead.

The Lazy Paperboy

Some say he’s half man half fish, others say he’s more of a seventy/thirty split. Either way he’s a fishy bastard.
