Ryan for Ryan?
I raised the burning question here the other the day after SNL announced that Jason Sudeikis would return and play Romney and Biden this fall and Jay Pharoah would take over as Obama--and, who knows, like in 2008, will the show help shape the race? But my question was: Who will Paul Ryan, certainly a juicy role. I had proposed Steve Carell perhaps.
But perhaps inspired by that pick, a commenter here had another better idea: B.J. Novak. He's already halfway there, since he plays the role of "Ryan" on The Office. And he can do smarmy, and smart/dumb. So what's YOUR choice?
