Michael Lewis Thought Moneyball Movie Would Suck

On The Daily Show with Jon Stewart last night, Michael Lewis freely admitted that he wasn’t excited about the prospect of a movie version of his book, Moneyball.

Given the author’s recent success with Hollywood, Stewart opened the interview by asking who he would pick to play Ben Bernanke in the movie version of his new book on the world financial crisis, Boomerang; Travels in the New Third World, (Norton, 10/3; S&S Audio). The book is currently at #4 on Amazon sales rankings; expect to see it on upcoming best seller lists. Several libraries are showing heavy holds.

Hmmm, Dustin Hoffman? Paul Giamatti?

Tom Cruise with a beard?
