|Description||WASHINGTON -- When Minnesota ad guru Bill Hillsman spotted a videocassette of the movie "Bulworth," starring Warren Beatty, on sale for $9.99 recently, he bought it and took it home. |
But before he got around to popping it in his VCR, he found himself playing a supporting role in the real-life version of the movie.
The day after he bought the tape, columnist Arianna Huffington telephoned Hillsman at his office at North Woods Advertising in Minneapolis to talk about "Bulworth" -- or Beatty, rather -- running for president on the Reform Party ticket.
Huffington was writing a column about the idea and she wanted Hillsman's reaction, since he had masterminded the ad campaign for the nation's only statewide Reform Party office holder, Minnesota Gov. Jesse Ventura.
