2004: The Movie has a story about John Edwards's appearance on Regis and Kelly, where he speculates on casting for a movie about the 2004 campaign. Kelly Ripa suggested that Harrison Ford play Kerry. From there:

Edwards responded that someone recently said%A0they had a mental%A0image of him in the movie, A Few Good Men, starring Tom Cruise and Jack Nicholson, "me as Tom Cruise and Dick Cheney as the Nicholson character." "Can you see it now, Cheney: 'You need me on that wall, you want me on that wall' . . . and me saying, 'You can't handle the truth!'"

The only problem with this, of course, is that "You can't handle the truth" is Nicholson's most famous line from A Few Good Men.

Be that as it may, I'm now commencing open casting for 2004: The Movie. Suggestions welcome.

casting for John Edwards...

Edwards is well-groomed, cute, quite bubbly, and appeals to pre-pubescent girls.

The role of John Edwards goes to the lovely Hilary Duff.

How about Hillary Duff and Katie Holmes to play the Bush daughters?

Hmmmm, Glenn Close as Teresa Kerry? Sharon Stone in a cameo as Hillary Clinton?
