Last night’s Republican presidential debate gave America a lot to think about. How sensible is Herman Cain‘s 9-9-9 plan? Is Mitt Romeny a flip-flopper? Does Rick Santorum kinda look like somebody… an actor, maybe. You know the guy I mean. Hmmm.

Like I said, a lot to think about. And should Hollywood look to tell the story of these Republican candidates, here are the actors and entertainers who could easily be cast to play them.

Herman Cain Portrayed by Biff Henderson

I’m sure he has excellent union benefits, but it’s time that The Late Show’s Biff Henderson took on a bigger role. His recent performance as “Cappy” in Larry Crowne doesn’t count. Biff deserves to be in a movie that people see. Though I can’t imagine Biff launching volleys against the Occupy Wall Street protesters. He’s much more likely to make them look ridiculous in a pre-taped segment.

Mitt Romney Portrayed by Henry Czerny

As Governor of Massachusetts, Mitt Romney eliminated a $3 million deficit. As Kittridge in Mission: Impossible, Henry Czerny walked around wearing a trench coat. That’s good enough for me! Cast the man, dammit.

Jon Huntsman Portrayed by Peter Berg

Should Battleship take a pounding at the box office, director Peter Berg may want to consider a return to acting. What better way than by taking the high profile role of Utah Governor Jon Huntsman? Of course, if other candidates for the role do some digging and discover his role in Corky Romano, he may be forced to resign from the race.
