Most unsurprising surprise: James Carville in 'The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford' Political advisor and bantering, bald-headed James Carville has made several cameo appearances in movies -- as a debater in Old School and alongside Senator John McCain in Wedding Crashers -- so we shouldnt be surprised to see him show up in The Assassination of Jesse James as Governor Crittenden. And yet, we were surprised. Because he was in period costume but he was still playing himself. We think if Carvilles really going to pursue a career on the silver screen, he should reach a little beyond his comfort zone of shady Southern politicians and lawyers.
