Conan O’Brien Announces Cast of NBC Movie About White House Troubles

If soon-to-be-Dr. Al Gore’s testimony on Capitol Hill yesterday wasn’t funny enough for you, Conan O’Brien’s satirical cast of a new NBC, made for television movie about problems facing the White House is sure to give you a chuckle.

The video is here courtesy of YouTube (h/t Allah at Hot Air), and a list of the cast follows after the break for those of you who prefer your comedy in writing.

However, please be forewarned that some degree of liberal bias is in this casting, as O’Brien clearly took stronger swings at Republicans. Yet, all in all, it’s pretty funny:

Valerie Plame will be played by Emma Thompson

Attorney General Alberto Gonzales will be played by Carlos Mencia

Gen. Peter Pace will be played by “Dewey” from “Malcolm in the Middle”

Republican Presidential hopeful Fred Thompson will be played by “Law and Order’s” Fred Thompson

Democrat Sen. Patrick Leahy will be played by the Muppet “Statler”

Sen. Chuck Schumer will be played by "Grandpa Munster"

NY Times reporter Judith Miller will be played by "Peppermint Patty"

Karl Rove will be played by "Jabba the Hut"

Donna Shalala will be played by Jackie Mason

Khalid Sheikh Mohammed will be played by porn star Ron Jeremy

Harriet Miers will be played by "Dobby" from “Harry Potter”

And, regardless of the satirical nature of this “skit,” I can’t bring myself to disgrace the Office of the President by repeating O’Brien’s casting suggestion for President Bush. Sorry.
