‘Swing Vote’ Cast Gets Bigger

dennis-hopper.gifVariety is reporting some casting news for Swing Vote.  The film, which already had Kevin Cosner attached, has Cosner playing an apathetic working-class single dad who’s thrust on the world stage when the presidential election comes down to his vote.  It’s a comedy.  I like Cosner and the new additions are pretty good too:  Dennis Hopper, Nathan Lane, Kelsey Grammer, Stanley Tucci, George Lopez and newcomer Madeline Carroll.

Hopper and Grammer will play the Democratic candidate and Republican incumbent, while Lane and Tucci will play their respective campaign managers.  Lopez will play the local TV station manager whose town is descended upon by the political machinery of both parties.

The premise is at least interesting and seems to be somewhat original, there could be a similar movie but I can’t think of one right now.  The cast seems potentially capable of producing laughs, but even though it starts shooting this month, we won’t see it until sometime next year.
