Active Twitter liberal John Cusack is developing a film about Rush Limbaugh, tentatively and creatively titled “Rush.” And, of course, the former Lloyd Dobler will play the popular conservative radio host/misogynistic racist himself. As the Associated Press notes:
Cusack as Limbaugh isn’t typecasting, politics aside. Cusack is a slender, dark-haired 46-year-old, while Limbaugh is 61, balding and portly. But Hollywood’s makeup experts have probably had greater challenges.
Ha, yes. All of that is true, AP. Also, this movie will almost certainly be awful. Production starts next year, which means it should be ready for hungover Saturday morning viewing on Netflix sometime in early 2014.
