irony in casting a movie has been known to tinkle my funny keys

Berni and I watched a movie last night (we watch a lot of movies, but no television broadcasts). It was a good movie, based on the facts of racism in these here United States. It had an excellent cast in the lead roles, but check out this supporting cast: 


Eisenhower

Robin Williams as President Dwight D. Eisenhower

 
 

MarsdenKennedy

James Marsden as President John F. Kennedy



SchreiberLBJ

Liev Schreiber as President Lyndon B. Johnson

 
 

CusackNixon

John Cusack as President Richard M. Nixon

If that irony is too mild for your taste, best of all is Alan Rickman as President Ronald W. Reagan and . . . Jane Fonda as Nancy Reagan!

If heavy irony in casting tinkles your funny keys, then this may be your type of movie. But you have to look it up on your own if you want to know what it is to see it. And so it is that irony in casting a movie has been known to tinkle my funny keys . . .
