An upcoming biopic about a pre-presidential Ronald Reagan has found its leading man: David Henrie (How I Met Your Mother) will be playing the 40th president in Reagan, a $25 million indie film being directed by Howard Klausner (Space Cowboys). In case Henrie seems a little bit young for this project, keep in mind that Reagan will be focused more on Reagan’s time as the president of the Screen Actors Guild when he was still doing some acting himself. (Yeah, remember that?) But more specifically, the movie will be told from the point of view of a KGB officer following Reagan as he becomes more involved in anti-Communism politics.

So the kid from Wizards of Waverly Place with that MMA thing should be perfect! Sure!
