Breaking lunacy news: John Cusack to play Rush Limbaugh in bio-pic
Hand to god, I'm not kidding. The Associated Press says John Cusack and his production company have a script ready to go that will featuring the '80s icon (and very outspoken liberal) starring as conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh.
Production is set for 2013, says Betty Thomas, who will direct the film. The working title is Rush, Cusack's New Crime Productions confirmed Friday. (Good luck getting any info fromNew Crime's official website, which is essentially a redirect for their e-mail.)
I can't begin to imagine what Limbaugh would say about such a project. I looked at his Twitter page, but there's nothing new there but the usual Obama bashing. Cusack's Twitter page is a little more lively, but also makes no mention of Rush.
