Last night/this morning.

The first official teaser is released for The Comey Rule starring Brendan Gleeson as Donald Trump.

The Comey Rule writer-director Billy Ray says:

“There was a lot of conversation with the hair team and the makeup team and the costume team: How do we accurately depict Donald Trump without making him a cartoon? Because so many people feel that he is one.

And everywhere that we could, we dialed it down. We made the contrast between the bags under his eyes and the orange skin softer than it actually is.

We made the hair a little less cartoonish than it actually is. We made the suits fit a little bit better. We went out of our way to play fair because we felt we owed that to the public.”

CNN reports:

CBS Studios has filled some key roles in its mini-series based on former FBI director James Comey’s memoir “A Higher Loyalty.”

Jeff Daniels has been cast as Comey, while “Harry Potter” actor Brendan Gleeson will play President Donald Trump in the four-hour series, CBS Studios announced Monday.

Additionally, “House of Cards” alum Michael Kelly will take on the role of FBI Director Andrew McCabe and Tony-winning actress Jennifer Ehle will play Patrice Comey, James Comey’s wife.

‘Meh’ writes:

There’s a claim by Gerry Boyle (played by Brendan Gleeson), in The Guard that he swam the 1500m an the 1988 Seoul Olympics and finished 4th.

Don Cheadle is hugely sceptical but Gleeson/Boyle describes the final from a competitor’s point of view in a very laid-back, blasé way that implies he is used to people not believing him, but there you go.
Anyway – Wikipedia currently has the answer, and it’s different than it was 2 weeks ago….
