YOU'RE SO VAIN: Warren Beatty as Richard Nixon? Seems strange, but I could see it working--Beatty can certainly play self-destructive (see, e.g., Bulworth) and this strikes me as exactly the sort of project that might lure him out of retirement (he hasn't done anything in six years, since the diastrous Town & Country). An interesting question--Beatty's career consists of only about 20 roles, and in my lifetime, he's only 8 films (two of which have been unmitigated disasters)--is there another unquestioned "Hollywood Legend" with as scant a filmography?
