Cox, however, is a lightweight. He does a reasonable impression of David Frost, but unlike Michael Sheen on Broadway and in the movie, he almost always seems as fatuous as his critics (like Reston) believe him to be. So the moment when his confidence and optimism fail him and he panics in his hotel room in front of his girlfriend, Caroline Cushing (Roxanna Hope, who does a lot with a little), carries no emotional heft. Ted Koch gives a one-note performance as the loyal, protective, military man Brennan, and Brian Sgambati's Reston is too much of a Boy Scout. But Keach is worth watching, and by the time his Nixon starts to totter, you understand why, its original stars aside, Morgan's play made it into another medium.
