Jill Clayburgh is going to play Pat Nixon in Dirty Tricks (2010).  Brad Pitt is going to play John Dean in Dirty Tricks (2010).  (And if those two bits of prettying up aren't ridiculous enough for you, Annette Bening is going to play Helen Thomas!!!). 


                      Annette Bening                 Helen Thomas during the Nixon era

Before that, Brad Pitt is going to be in Tree of Life (2009) (which had Heath's name attached to it for a while a year or so ago) with Sean Penn.

Before that, Sean Penn is going to play Harvey Milk (!) in Milk (2008) with Emile Hirsch.

Once upon a time, when nothing seemed wrong, Emile Hirsch was in Lords of Dogtown (2005) with Heath.

Heath does/did/will = BBM.
