Move over, Tommy Lee Jones. Dick Cheney might be the grumpiest man in Hollywood as the exclusive unveiling of a new poster for the documentary The World According to Dick Cheney shows.

He looks about as amused as the stone-faced Jones watching the Golden Globes.

The film, directed by R.J. Cutler (The War Room) and Greg Finton, will premiere at the Sundance Film Festival on Friday. It shows the former vice president with a serious look on his face with the quote, “If you want to be loved, go be a movie star.” The quote comes from an on-camera interview with Cutler.

Cheney is not expected at Sundance to support the film. The film is the result of hours of interviews with Cheney and his closest associates, as well as his fiercest critics.

How did a college dropout who was arrested for DUI twice in the same year become the single-most-powerful non-presidential political figure in American history?” the Sundance online film catalog asks in its synopsis of the film.

After its premiere at Sundance, the film will air on Showtime on March 16.
