We cast our votes for all the president's men - Neil Patrick Harris, Richard Dreyfuss, and more are our picks for the ''Against All Enemies'' movie

We cast our votes for all the president's men

Not since John Travolta adopted a Clintonian drawl and salt-and-pepper locks in 1998's Primary Colors has Hollywood had such a chance to play real-life politicos: Sony Pictures has optioned former counterterrorism adviser Richard Clarke's best-selling bombshell, Against All Enemies, for the big screen. Though a screenplay of a book set in the back channels of bureaucracy -- climaxing with the Bush Administration's inaction on terrorist threats -- is a bit of a yawner, some inspired casting would help. Our expert suggestions:

NEIL PATRICK HARRIS as GEORGE W. BUSH RICHARD DREYFUSS as RICHARD CLARKE PENNY JOHNSON JERALD as CONDOLEEZZA RICE MICHAEL DOUGLAS as DONALD RUMSFELD JAMES GANDOLFINI as DICK CHENEY RUSSELL CROWE as BILL CLINTON
