What If Hollywood Cast Election 2008?

Comments (398)

In a daring and courageous (and very tongue-in-cheek) move, BlackVoices.com brainstormed the idea of casting a movie based on the historical presidential election of 2008. FYI, we disqualified any SNL actor and those who've already portrayed the Election 08 crew (sorry Tina).

In doing so, we made some casting choices, posing the question: who should portray whom?

We made our choices. But of course, our loyal readers may think otherwise.

So after you peruse the gallery below, please tell us who would be your top picks. And don't forget to check out Moviefone's Best Movie Presidents Poll.

Komen for the Cure' fight against breast cancer in New York, Tuesday, Sept. 23, 2008. The shirt is for sale on the web site and the net proceeds will benefit the foundation.
