Hot on the heels of completing shooting for Kevin Smith’s upcoming comedy Zack and Miri Make a Porno, Elizabeth Banks (C’96) is in final talks to play a serious role (this time) from an esteemed Hollywood director…

Per The Hollywood Reporter, Oliver Stone has chosen Liz to play Laura Bush(!) in a film about the presidency of George W. Bush (played by Josh Brolin).

Liz is quite the versatile actress as she manages to easily transition from comedy (>Wet Hot American Summer, Slither, 40 Year Old Virgin) to drama (Seabiscuit, The Heights, Invincible). If Liz’s career isn’t big enough, playing Laura Bush in an Oliver Stone film should help to catapult her career even more!
