    Actors for the TV Movie:HP

    Carly - Drew Berrymore (Exorcist)

    Walter Hewlett - Charleton Heston (Moses)

    If the merger gets voted down and Carly is ousted, HP employees will be heard walking the halls repeating MLK's famous words "Free at last, FREE AT LAST!

    • "If the merger gets voted down and Carly is ousted, HP employees will be heard walking the halls repeating MLK's famous words "Free at last, FREE AT LAST!"

      And Carly will be seen stumbling about, pulling her hair out and crying "Lordy, Lordy Miss Charlotte, I don't know nuthin' about birthing no babies."

    • Carly Fiorina - played by herself. After all, she seems to be an actress now, "playing" the role of a technology CEO. (i.e. she's got the "style" right but there's no substance underneath; she's always trying to give a "performance" rather than results).

      Walter Hewlett - played by Michael Douglas. Not that I think there's a lot of resemblance, but I'd love to see Walter take on Carly and the BoD the way Michael Douglas (as Gordon Gekko) took on the do-nothing corporate "insiders" in the movie "Wall Street". And frankly, Walter (along with help from David W. Packard, etc.) seems to be doing just that! Go get 'em Walter!
