Names & Faces offers a little nugget of real Washington gossip today:
Robert Redford was somehow spotted (perhaps by someone named Bernstein?) yesterday leaving Bob Woodward‘s Georgetown home with a copy of the latter’s forthcoming book on Deep Throat. The quickie tome, “The Secret Man: The Story of Watergate’s Deep Throat,” is due out Wednesday and N&F wonders whether a new movie is in the works.
One of Redford’s most famous roles, after all, was playing the intrepid reporter in 1976’s “All the President’s Men.”
Woodward declined comment, saying only that Redford had stopped by for a 3 1/2-hour “life catch-up” during which they discussed “Sundance, the movies, politics, books I’ve done on Bush.”
When the Post pressed him, Woodward added “There was a very serious discussion and the focus was on Watergate…. Redford, like me, has this endless fascination with Watergate. He gets it.”
