james woods too big too fail

[credit provider=”HBO”]

HBO’s Too Big To Fail airs at 8 pm on May 23rd.The New York Post‘s Linda Stasi has already seen it and said, “Every performance is spot-on, every scene more enraging than the next in a perfect depiction of a very imperfect system.”

Perfect depiction indeed. Some of the actors look uncannily like their Wall Street counterparts.

Paul Giamatti looks like a clone of Ben Bernanke. And Ed Asner, who’s playing Warren Buffett, could be a double for the Oracle, no sweat.
