    The Joe Biden moment brought a laugh-out-loud.

  3. Karen says:

    Is it for real?

  4. Dharmaruci says:

    is it right to have actors in blackface even if they are that good? (and Daniel Daylewis was exceptional good in this extract).

    i noticed that they dared not show lawrence fishburne in whiteface depicting Joe Stalin, the part he says he plays in the movie.

    acting is one thing. respecting ethnicity choices is another. dare they to mix?

      Get over it, it’s just make-up. No need to be so self-consciously politically correct.

      “ethnicity choices”

      Did you actually type that with a straight face?

  5. They could’ve at least got Daniel Day Lewis to play Spielberg. Or was it him all along…?

  6. Daniel Day- Lewis has managed yet another Oscar-worthy performance!

  7. Lazy T says:

    this is going to give our lot some ideas for self-promotion
    Helen Mirren as ‘call me Dave’
    Rowan Atkinson as Boris Bean
    The guy who plays Trigger as Gideon Osborne
    oh dear

  8. Cinderella says:

    And obviously Meryl Stereo as Michelle…

  9. Martha says:

    Have I just fallen into a parallel universe in which these comments make sense?

    • Dharmaruci says:

      in this universe Daniel Daylewis is a respected actor who has played (now) 2 out of the 44 presidents the USA (“america”) has had since winning it’s independence.

      it is not clear from the video if He intends to play all of them.

    • Martha says:

      Ah – I got a dead link the first time I looked. Now I see it OK

  10. It was the ears that did it!

  11. Shecky R says:

    stop cursing autocorrect… “Meryl Stereo” is the funniest line in all these comments! 😉

  12. As above says:

    I don’t know…..I did not think it was that much like him.

  13. Eddie says:

    Could someone explain what was so funny about the video?

  14. Gareth says:

    It wasn’t exactly hilarious, but it’s why I like Obama – he’s not afraid to make fun of himself.

  15. The ear comment got a bit of a laugh from me, but then I do tend to like wry humour.

  16. Greg23 says:

    I don’t think anybody explained the background of this. It is from the Correspondents DInner in Washington. It’s an annual roast with the National Press, Politicos and invited celebrities. A famous comedian roasts the President and the President even roasts himself. This clip was from Obama’s roast of himself.

  17. OBAMA can act!!! I love it!!!

  18. SA Gould says:

    Nixon on LaughIn was the first President I remember to try comedy. At least Obama has a sense of humor.

  19. Luann Watson says:

    He is smart, clever and self-depricating – what’s not to like?

  20. It’s a double-bluff. It’s not Obama pretending to be Daniel Day-Lewis pretending to be Obama; it really *is* Daniel Day-Lewis pretending to be Obama. How can we tell? DDL is wearing a European tie. In Europe, the stripes on a tie go from top-right to bottom-left; in the USA they go from top-left to bottom-right.

  21. Diffa says:

    Obama isn’t a good enough person to make this sort of thing work. In November 2008, maybe.
