Aaron Sorkin doing a 'Politician' movie? I vote for Blago to play John Edwards.

(Sorkin’s rep did not immediately return EW’s calls for confirmation; Young’s rep says, “as far as we know, it’s just a rumor.”) So now, naturally, what everyone wants to know is: What actor should star as John Edwards? Many suspect Dennis Quaid or George Clooney would be good because of their age, appearance, and charm. I, for one, say phooey to those choices – I’m backing Rod Blagojevich for this one. After all, the guy needs a job, since he was just fired from The Celebrity Apprentice last night. Plus, he knows a thing or two about scandal, and that hair is probably as moldable as Play-Doh. And since he was – I’ll put this in Blago terms – “prematurely ejaculated” from Celebrity Apprentice, I’ll need to get my Blago fix somehow. (But as Sharon Osbourne said, maybe his eyes are a bit too close together. At least to play Edwards.)

Who’s your pick to play Edwards?
