G8: The Movie


The Daily Beast casts Daniel Baldwin as Stephen Harper (h/t Wherry).

Beyond the physical similarities, I do like this casting. Both men have had to battle horrible problems - for Baldwin, cocaine addiction; for Harper, being tardy for photo-ops.

  • I think the Baldwin fellow is much better looking than Harper is.

  • I thought commenting on the physical appearance of
    politicians was considered a no no by LIBERALS ?

    Just wondering.

  • As somebody [erroneously] classified as Asian American in my university's files, I am offended by the Taro Aso pick. Its like they just went with the first Asian actor that came to mind (incidentally the guy they picked DOES kind of resemble Koizumi).

    Here is how I would cast some random politicians (solely based on resemblance):

    Michael Ignatieff: Jeremy Irons is a "dead ringer" for Iggy... I wonder if they are also secretly gynecologists (I will be amazed if anybody gets that reference).

    Stephen Harper: Baldwin's face is too long for him to pull off Harper. However I can't think of anybody distinctly better...

    Jack Layton: that video professor guy. http://www.chrisd.ca/blog/wp-content/uploads/2008/10/jack-layton-video-professor.jpg

    Stephane Dion: Woody Allen

    Dalton McGuinty: Spenny from Kenny vs. Spenny... or David Schwimmer.

    John Baird: Perez Hilton (not because Baird is, as far as I know gay, they have similar faces). Alternately, the guy who played Londo's number two on Babylon 5, and Flounder in Animal House, Stephen Furst (at his b5 weight).


    Don Newman: William Shatner

    Christopher Hitchens: Roger Allam

    Al Gore (younger): Gary Sinise

    Henry Waxman: it would require CGI or prosthetics to make somebody look like Henry Waxman

  • I'd been trying to think of an Iggy doppleganger for this post, but nothing came to mind. Jeremy Irons is a good suggestion.

  • Like the blue sweater pic of Baldwin.

    A sweater vest would have been better though.
