Ralph Reed, Christian Boy King.
Reader MC suggests that Neil Patrick Harris should get the role because, “it would be delicious to have the openly gay, eternally Doogie, actor play the Christian right’s boyish smarm king.” Cheers.
Grover Norquist, The Front Man.
Multiple readers rightly suggested Philip Seymour Hoffman to play Norquist, whose non-profit organization was a front for Abramoff lobbying activity.
Tom Delay, The Enabler.
Chris Cooper received the plurality of reader support for this role. Reader JW said that Cooper is the obvious choice because he is “always excellent, always playing those creepy government guys.”
Conrad Burns, The Tainted.
Reader BF suggested Robert Duval. Yes.
John Doolittle, The Hero.
A number of readers suggested Steven Root (of Newsradio and Office Space) for Doolittle, who Abramoff once referred to as a “Hero.”
Steven Griles, The Inside Man.
Brian Dennehy was the reader favorite for old man Griles.
Kevin Ring, The Middleman.
If you’ve seen Arrested Development or 30 Rock, you’ll surely agree with Reader MJ that Will Arnett would play an outstanding crooked lobbyist.
Italia Federici, The Cooperator.
Laura Linney was the favorite.
Jack Abramoff, Big Spender.
Keyser SÃ¶ze actor has already signed on for this roll.
