The Dick Cheney Dossier: Inside Adam McKay’s Searing Exposé of D.C.'s "Ultimate Gamesman" in 'Vice'
This is going to be epic!
Christian Bale (who gained 45 pounds) and Amy Adams star in a satirical takedown of one of the most cunning figures in American politics as the director opens up about the current climate, Fox News, Bill Clinton (“one of the worst presidents”) and why he'd "choose Trump over Bush and Cheney."
It's the eve of the midterm elections, and Adam McKay is feeling optimistic about the Democrats' prospects of taking back the house.
Still, the SNL writer turned Oscar-winning filmmaker insists he is not throwing a results-viewing party with his Hollywood friends, even as I spot an assistant carrying supplies from Whole Foods into his West Hollywood offices. Instead, McKay, looking like a college professor with a corduroy jacket and scarf, says he is planning to hang out at his house with his wife, director Shira Piven (Jeremy's sister), their two daughters and his mother-in-law, and together they will "very calmly and somberly watch the results," he says.
