File This Under Too Soon

So rumor has it there's a Tim Russert TV biopic is already in the works. Did you clock it folks? That's less than a month since his passing.

Anyway, the super-sleuths over at Defamer found this posting on Craigslist casting for an unknown actress to play Russert's wife, Maureen Orth.

Crazier news? Randy Quaid is playing the big man himself, Tim Russert. No not the Dennis Quaid. Randy. The chubby one whos acting chops are kind of touch and go.

This one.

Yes he's kind of a doppleganger for Russert. But that guy?

What a fitting tribute this will be.

I can kind of see why he was picked... there is somewhat of a resemblence.
