Pin it

Timothy Geithner will be played by Billy Crudup in HBO movie "Too Big to Fail."

Actor, thespian, and movie star Billy Crudup will be playing Secretary of the Treasury Timothy Geithner on Too Big to Fail, HBO’s dramatic interpretation of an Andrew Ross Sorkin book of the same name.

The announcement came from, of all places, Fox News Channel.

She was absolutely stunned to hear of Crudup’s upcoming project, which you can see for yourself in the following video (2:17 – 4:30, specifically):

No word yet on when the made-for-HBO movie will air.
