Spielberg's 'Obama,' Kevin Spacey's spoof: Correspondents' Dinner

Posted on

Last night’s White House Correspondents’ Dinner features two different spoof videos featuring extensive celebrity/politico cameos. First up came House of Nerds, in which Kevin Spacey’s utterly corrupt House of Cards politician took the screen opposite probably-corrupt real-life politicians like John McCain, Valerie Jarrett, Michael Bloomberg, and a lot of other people who almost certainly have more important things to do. Bonus: There’s an NBC joke! Watch the video:

Still, for pure star power, House of Nerds may have been one-upped. In the second goofy video of the night, Lincoln director Steven Spielberg explains that he just couldn’t shake the presidential-biopic bug. So he decided to make the logical sequel: Obama. Starring Daniel Day-Lewis. Kind of. Watch:
