Gone Hollywood?

Gazette staff April 17th, 2013

U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe, R-Tulsa, has made the leap to the silver screen, and he didn’t even have to audition for the part. He is among the villains of Greedy Lying Bastards, a newly released documentary about climate change that contends big energy companies have bribed Republican legislators into denying the existence of global warming and other science-based hogwash.

Although it’s doubtless that the filmmakers aim to dispute Inhofe’s contention that manmade climate change is “a hoax,” Oklahoma’s senior senator has said he is tickled to be part of the flick.

“I was not surprised to see myself front and center on the promotional material for this climate-change movie, and quite frankly, I’m proud of it,” Inhofe told the Tulsa World.

Perhaps he’s just excited to finally get a close-up on the big screen. The last time CFN recalls an Oklahoma senator in the movies was when then-U.S. Sen. Don Nickles had a cameo in 2000’s Traffic. And he didn’t even get to shoot up.
