Jesse Bradford Joins W
He'll play Dubya's college buddy

Jesse Bradford (The West Wing, Swimfan) has joined the cast of Oliver Stone's W. He'll play a college friend of George W Bush.

Given that Bradford is eleven years younger than Josh Brolin, who's playing Bush, can we extrapolate that their will be a younger actor playing a college-age Dubya? Or will their be some extensive youth-making make up involved?

W is currently shooting in Louisiana with a cast including Ellen Burstyn, James Cromwell, Elizabeth Banks, Thandie Newton, Ioan Gruffudd, Richard Dreyfuss, Jeffrey Wright and Toby Jones?
