I heard Traficant interviewed yesterday. Talk about a blast from the past. He said that there were plans in the works for a movie about his life. You know - the typical boy from working class family makes it to the halls of Congress where he fights for the little guy while breaking the law.
William Shatner is probably too old for the part to play the young Traficant, but there would be a special sort of symmetry to have Shatner play the man who made the phrase "Beam me up" famous on the House floor.
Any other casting ideas?
