Just call me "Mr. President"
Went to see Hyde Park on Hudson today, mainly interested in seeing Bill Murray's portrayal of Franklin Roosevelt, since I had played Roosevelt in the Memorial Players' production of Annie in the spring of 2010.
Afterward I asked Kathleen which portrayal of FDR she found more compelling, Murray's or mine.
