A famous film auteur as Willie Geist?
A sitcom star as Natalie Morales?
When talking about which actress might play Hillary Clinton in an upcoming movie about her early life, Natalie, Willie and Al Roker imagined on Friday who would play them if TODAY ever hit the big screen.
Al appointed Anthony Anderson of NBC’s “Guys with Kids,’’ with "The Office" star Craig Robinson as his second choice.
“Or we could just go with Wanda Sykes,’’ Al cracked after having previously joked that Sykes should play Clinton.
Natalie chose “Modern Family’’ star Sofia Vergara as her on-screen alter ego.
And who wouldn't?
“Squint a little, have a couple of beers, and when I talk like dees, you think Sofia Vergara,’’ Natalie said. “Me and Sofia Vergara, dead ringers…in my dreams.’’
Al suggested “Jessica’’ Love Hewitt as Natalie's doppelganger before being reminded that the actress is named Jennifer.
“Or her sister Jessica,’’ he added.
Willie suggested a young Orson Welles to play him, noting the facial similarity and that “this is a fantasy segment.” Al and Natalie voted for Vince Vaughn as Willie’s on-screen stand-in.
