Over the last 20 years, Oliver Stone has done biopics on everyone from Nixon to Alexander the Great, to our last president, Bush. We journalists like nothing more than fantasy casting, so we marched up to him at Brandaid on Thursday night and asked Stone who he would pick to play our current obsession: Bernie Madoff.
He didn't miss a beat.
What about the wife? "I'm not sure. I haven't really looked at the pictures of her. Maybe Brenda Fricker. She's Jewish."
Nearby, the environmental organization Global Green threw a concert where Sheryl Crow performed. There was a VIP room teeming with celebrities, among them Kate Bosworth, Heather Graham, Radha Mitchell and Jon Tenney from "The Closer." "I've been involved with the organization since I was 19," Bosworth said. "And I'm currently reading [New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman's] 'Hot, Flat and Crowded.' It's amazing."
She was actually delightful.
