I remember listening to Bill Burr's podcast where he talked about being in a film with Hugh Jackman. He didn't know if he was allowed to talk about it but was granted permission by the director to talk about it. It wasn't much detail. Just that it was a movie with Jackman and that it was going to be good. I remember thinking, "of course you'd say that, you're in the damn thing" but here we are. A movie based on a true story on Gary Hart. The moment I saw Burr standing in the scene it all came back.
With all of the rhetoric in politics this may be something that can stir up interest. Seems to me that a film like this coming out during the mid terms is not a coincidence.
This is obviously a potential Oscar contender. The release date and the power cast is all the ingredients for Oscar buzz. This looks like a good movie. I can't wait to cheer on by boy Burr. Click on the link if you want to subscribe to The Bill Burr Monday Morning Podcast.
