Will Ferrell To Play Ronald Reagan

He’s played George W. Bush in various comedy sketches, now comedian Will Ferrell is setting his sights on playing President Ronald Reagan in the Black List script “Reagan.”

Mike Rosolio penned the script which begins at the start of the ex-president’s second term when he falls into dementia. An ambitious intern is tasked with convincing the commander in chief that he is an actor playing the president in a movie.

The script proved so popular that a live read was done recently starring Lena Dunham and John Cho. Ferrell will produce the film, but no director is yet attached.
