Recount: An Election 2000 TV Movie?
Kevin Spacey, Dennis Leary, Laura Dern, and Ed Begley Jr. have all signed on to make a “political drama” about the 2000 election. The TV movie is called “Recount” and will air next year.
The political drama, set to start shooting next month, will trace the story behind the acrimonious ballot recounts in Florida at the end of the 2000 race between Democrat Gore and then-Texas Gov. George W. Bush, a Republican.
Spacey will play Gore’s chief of staff and head lawyer. Dern is going to play Katherine Harris. Leary will be a Dem pollster and Begley will be another Dem lawyer. British actor Tom Wilkinson will play Republican James Baker.
“Move on” is just not in these people’s vocabulary, is it?
