nerd rage

Is anyone else excited about tonight's HBO premier of "Too Big To Fail" or is that just me?  Having lived through the crisis in an industry that was directly impacted, I'm kind of pumped for it.  Also, the casting is brilliant. I mean spot on.  Paul Giametti as Ben Bernake? Flawless.

they could be twins...
Bill Pullman as Jamie Dimon, CEO of JP Morgan
I have to say here that Jamie is actually better looking than Bill.

Billy Cudrup as Tim Geithner
winner: Billy. Obvi.

my favorite! Dan Heyada as B. Frank
winner: toss up
B. Frank is a disheveled mess and sounds like a muppet.  I hope Dan brings it home.

Ed Asner as Warren Buffet
Another amazing casting move...
winner: Warren. Just because he's Warren.

Evan Handler as Lloyd Blankfeld, CEO of  Goldman Sachs
Winner: Charlotte's husband, Harry.

James Woods as Dick Fuld, CEO of Lehman Bros.
Winner: Jimmy Woods because his company didn't destroy the american economy.
 Ayad Akhtar as Neel know the 38 year old that was in charge of the $700 billion
Winner: neither.  Both are citizens of uggsville.

Peter Hermann as SEC head Chris Cox
winner: chris cox as HBO was being severely generous with this cast

Monk as John Mack, CEO of Morgan Stanley

William Hurt as Henry Paulson.
Winner: toss up.
Topher Grace as Paulson's CoS Jim Wilkinson
Winner: Topher. Because his name is Topher.

Cash rules everything around me,
