National Security Advisor Susan Rice and Attorney General Eric Holder had no problem coming up with actors to portray them in the movie version of the administration.
Rice and Holder were separately asked the question at Wednesday’s Washington Ideas Forum.
“Halle Berry,” Rice quickly answered, adding, “I should be so lucky.”
“There’s only person,” Holder replied. “Denzel.”
The last movie Holder saw? “I re-watched The Godfather. The greatest movie of all time.”
He also admitted he likes to “binge watch not-too-serious television.”
“Boardwalk Empire, I’m going to be working on that pretty soon,” Holder said of the HBO series that just ended its five-season run. “Homeland. These are the things that I just love to sit down, and, you know, just go for like hours.”
Asked which political series “gets Washington mostly right” — Homeland, Scandal, Veep, or House of Cards — Holder picked the Netflix series.
“Depending on the administration, I’d say House of Cards,” he said. “There was a pretty bad vice president in House of Cards, but I’ll leave it at that.”
“And I like Joe Biden, so I’m not talking about him,” Holder added.
