Cast the Democratic primary


You're now in charge of securing guest stars for SNL this fall, actors and comedians to play the roles of the Democratic candidates. Who you got?

My initial thoughts:
Bernie: Larry David returns.
Beto: Jon Heder, compete with a "Vote for Beto" shirt
Marianne Williamson: Jane Krakowski
DiBlasio: Tim Robinson
Kamala: Maya Rudolph
Booker: The Rock
Gillibrand: Kristen Bell

Jay Inslee needs to be played by the dude who played "The Godfather" on Generation Kill.

He's a little older, but I could see Fred Armison play Julian Castro.

Biden has to be Jason Sudeikis, like he's always been.

Is time travel allowed?

Jay Inslee - the Cape Fear version of Nick Nolte

Or reincarnation?

Bill de Blasio - the middle-aged version of John Huston

I think Robert Deniro would be a good Bernie Sanders.

The only problem with De Niro is that he doesn't learn his lines and doesn't read well. I love him as a movie actor, but I remember his SNL cold opens as pretty cringe-worthy.

Paul Giamatti for Delaney and Rachel Dratch for Klobuchar. Marianne Williamson plays herself.
