Who should play Toronto mayor Rob Ford in a movie? -- POLL

Posted on

If there’s one thing I enjoy more than listening to crack-smoking Toronto mayor Rob Ford talk about recently purchasing illegal drugs or that time he didn’t tell a female staffer he wanted to have oral sex with her, it’s thinking who I will one day hear saying this stuff when the inevitable movie about his time in office gets made. (My pitch? “It’s Bob Roberts on crack — literally.”)

The name that first popped into my head was that of ex-Mad TV cast member Will Sasso, partly because he is himself Canadian and partly because I happen to believe he is an underrated comic actor, but mostly because he’s bald. Of course, there are many other options.

Who do you think would make for a good Rob Ford? Please do vote below. The good news: Whoever you vote for, you won’t end up with a crack-smoking mayor. (Unless, of course, you live in Toronto. Sorry, Toronto!)
