They don’t really look alike, but that’s who Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney said on a taping of Live! With Kelly And Michael today he’d like to see play him on the big screen. After noting that Hackman, who has played a couple of presidents in his career, would make a good Mitt, Romney said Michelle Pfeiffer should be cast as his wife Ann. In a pre-taped segment to be aired September 18, Romney and his wife got personal and pop culture with Live! hosts Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan, with topics including Jersey Shore‘s Snooki and the Kardashians. Ann Romney reiterated that ABC’s Modern Family is the couple’s favorite TV show. (The Romneys were mocked by the show’s creator Steve Levitan via Twitter last month when Ann first said how much she liked the show — the GOP candidate is opposed to gay marriage, a major theme in the series.)
