Understanding W.

Posted: Updated:

I recently had a conversation with Oliver Stone and Josh Brolin about their new movie, "W." The movie examines the life of President George W. Bush. Stone said the he did the movie because there is no better character than our president. "There's just nobody like him," Stone said. "That's not to say you like him or hate him or love him. He's still bigger than life."

Brolin, who plays the lead character, told me about what he did to prepare for such a role. Watch the video below and find out.
