Auditions For 'Rob Ford The Musical' Were Held Today

I’m too old for the role.

They arrived in various states of blond, portly and pinstriped to the basement audition suites of the Second City training centre.

At least 40 candidates for Toronto’s next top mayor, the fictional variety, auditioned for a role in the upcoming production Rob Ford the Musical: Birth of a Ford Nation, which is slated to have a two-week run in September.

The casting call attracted serious actors, neophytes, fans of the Rob Ford spectacle and even one man who briefly played a part in the ongoing, non-fiction version of the political drama as it began to play out last year.

If this guy were an American he would either have been born a Kennedy or they would have adopted him by now.

And we all know who we wish were alive to play him:
