But that’s just fine with Mitt Romney. The presidential hopeful appeared on Live! With Kelly & Michael and named the aging actor as the celeb he would most like to play him in a movie. (Thankfully a film about his life is as fictional right now as his running mate Paul Ryan‘s alleged marathon time.)
During his appearance on the morning talk show — set to air September 18 — alongside his wife, Ann, the 65-year-old Republican selected a much younger leading lady to play his missus, 54-year-old Michelle Pfeiffer. His wife’s actual age? Sixty three.
Guess his choice of Hackman makes sense when you consider the fact that the 82-year-old Academy Award winner has been known to play president before — in 1997’s Absolute Power. And alongside Clint Eastwood. Who how could we forget famously spoke at the Republican National Convention on behalf of the presidential wanna-be?
