Josh Brolin Channels the President in ‘W.’



Actor and Democrat Josh Brolin portrays President George W. Bush in director Oliver Stone's biopic, "W.", which opens in theaters this week, and said one thing about the role really surprised him.

"I told my wife, I can't believe I'm saying this, but I really like the guy," mused Brolin about the 43rd president of the United States in an interview for ABC News Now's "Popcorn with Peter Travers."

Brolin grew up in a Republican household, he said. "My dad and my mom were Republicans," yet he became a Democrat "organically ... and on my own."

Despite his left-wing leanings, he not only grew to like the president but also found a new appreciation for "certain aspects of the Republican Party." But his esteem only goes so far.
