Grover Norquist is slowly working his way into show business. The anti-tax icon and occasional guest in The Onion sketches is finally making it to the silver screen– as a homeless former businessman extra in the second film installment of Atlas Shrugged. And we must say he looks… fairly convincing! RELATED: Grover Norquist, A Pretty Smooth Juggler, Teaches Reporter His Skills
The second installment of Atlas Shrugged, which began filming this spring, includes some of the major developments in the second half of the novel, and some of its biggest and most important speeches. It will also boast among its illustrious cast one of the most prominent libertarian voices in American politics– even if only as what appears to be a former businessman now hard on his luck because of the oppressive yoke of government oppression designed to sustain a prominent class of useless and amoral looters, or something. Norquist tweeted he was around the set last week without explanation (other than to take their delicious libertarian food), and now we know why, thanks to the Washington Post: he’s an actor.
Here’s the image we can expect to see of Norquist when the film hits theaters. What do you see? Caption the depressing and fairly convincing work of Norquist, thespian, in the comments below.
