C. Thomas HowellA day after the cast was set for Oliver Stone's upcoming political biopic of U.S. President George W. Bush, C. Thomas Howell has signed up to play the American leader in a comedy. While No Country For Old Men star Josh Brolin will play Bush in Stone's drama W. Soul Man star Howell will portray the President in new political satire Commander-And-Chief.

Directed by Gerson Sanginitto, the comedy can only loosely suggest Howell is Bush, because of the content of the film, but a movie spokesperson says, "There's no mistaking who he is supposed to be."

The insider adds, "This hysterical political satire is guaranteed to make audiences both laugh and think."

Meanwhile, Babe star James Cromwell, Elizabeth Banks and Ellen Burstyn have been added to the cast of Stone's Bush biopic.

Cromwell and Burstyn will play the current President's parents George Herbert Walker Bush and Barbara Bush respectively, while Banks will portray First Lady Laura Bush.
