We thought it impossible but Billy Bob Thornton has captured the raw courage, the great excitement of Federal Chairman Alan Greenspan, over those hectic years.
Alan Greenspan (born March 6, 1926) was THE American economist who served as Chairman of the Federal Reserve of the United States from 1987 to 2006.
This reporter was simply amazed at the sneak preview.
The door opens. Congress is waiting..and you know how cool it was when Greenspan used to make them wait?..in comes Mr. Greenspan, played by none other than oscar-nominee, Billy Bob Thornton.
"Mmmmmm. I reckon you all want to know about this here next interest rate. Mmmmmm. Well, I'm right handy with an interest rate."
Then he let's them have it.
"Mmmm. I reckon it won't hurt nothing to raise it a half point."
The reporters hit the door and congress thanked Mr. Greenspan as he slowly moved out the door.
THEN HE SUDDENLY REAPPEARS!
"Yes, Mr. Greenspan?"
"I want to be baptised. Ummmhmmm."
"We'll see to it, Sir."
"Well, ALL RIGHT, THEN!"
If this doesn't win an Oscar for Billy Bob Thornton, both Kayne West and myself will be up there on that stage!
