HBO original movies are a distinguished character actor's bread-and-butter, but even by the network's lofty standards, the cast for Curtis Hanson's upcoming adaptation of Andrew Ross Sorkin's financial meltdown chronicle "Too Big To Fail" reads like a list of everyone who has been in a movie since 1987, including Billy Crudup, James Woods, Bill Pullman, Matthew Modine, Dan Hedaya, Ed Asner, Paul Giamatti, William Hurt, Tony Shalhoub, Kathy Baker, John Heard, Cynthia Nixon, Topher Grace, Evan Handler, and Joey Slotnik.

The response, suffice it to say, has been positive.
