The Special Relationship!

Michael Sheen had twittered that he was playing Tony Blair again, and it's finally almost here! The Special Relationship, which is a BBC/HBO movie about Blair and Clinton airs first in Britain on May 7th.  We get it on HBO May 29th, coincidentally the day before the Emmy deadline.

I think this is the third time screenwriter Peter Morgan has written Michael Sheen a Tony Blair part. Dennis Quaid plays Clinton, and Hope Davis Hilary. I am thrilled that Helen McRory reprises her great Cherie Blair.  More pics here.

To say that I'm looking forward to seeing Sheen in this would be the understatement of the year.  Love him in anything, but especially as Blair!
