Bush managed to avoid serving his National Service in Vietnam.

Cate Blanchett is also thought to be in negotiations to play Mary Mapes, Rather's producer, as Deadline reports.

Acclaimed director, Steven Spielberg, has spoken out about his annoyance that so few Hollywood stars supported John Kerry in his Democratic Presidential Campaign against George W Bush.
Genius, legendary filmmaker, Steven Spielberg, has spoken out about how he was incredibly annoyed that Hollywood's A-Listers failed to rally behind the Democrat Presidential candidate, John Kerry, during the election campaign in November 2004.

Spielberg was especially disappointed to find himself as one of the few influential members of the film industry in support of Kerry. In the 1990s, Hollywood superstars fell over themselves in order to lend their support to the campaign of the highly charismatic Bill Clinton. It is this charisma that Spielberg believes caused the support to come to Clinton, and while Kerry may lack it, Spielberg maintains that he would have made a great leader.
