Anthony Weiner Goes To Hollywood

The longer Anthony Weiner‘s New York City mayoral run festers, the more it seems to resemble a movie. The crazy twists and turns seem fit for Hollywood gold, and it’s bound to hit theaters at some point. So we’re helping Hollywood out and running through our top three ideal movies, including the titles, casts and movie posters.

Anthony Weiner: Himself

Huma Abedin: Herself

Sydney Elaine Leathers: Herself

Cameo: Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough

Reporters: Jimmy Fallon, John Oliver

Paparazzi: Bill Murray

Directed by: M. Night Shyamalan

After his political career fizzles out, Weiner will need something to keep him occupied, and who can play Weiner better than Weiner? M. Night Shyamalan brings the story to life again, but is the story what you think it is? Look out for an insane twist ending. Bill Murray will also be in it, and that alone is enough to make a great movie.


Anthony Weiner: Sean Penn

Huma Abedin: Penelope Cruz

Sydney Elaine Leathers: Christina Ricci

Cameo: Dana Bash

Reporters: Alicia Silverstone, Jennifer Garner

Paparazzi: Alec Baldwin

Directed by: James Cameron

In this dramatic retelling of the heartbreaking story, Cameron brings to life the struggles of Weiner to keep his reputation and poll numbers up, which are both falling quickly. On top of his political career, he has a marriage to take care of, but all is jeopardized by a hard-fought sexting habit that he can’t escape. Plus he loves shower scenes, so we gave him a bubble bath.


Anthony Weiner: Pauly Shore

Huma Abedin: Freida Pinto

Sydney Elaine Leathers: Snooki

Cameo: Bob Scheiffer

Reporters: Sarah Silverman, Jennifer Lawrence

Paparazzi: Quentin Tarantino

Directed by: Quentin Tarantino

A dark and comical tale of the life of a former congressman running for mayor, his online mistresses, his seemingly-loyal wife and the media following them. This will make you laugh one minute and leave you wondering what type of human-being Tarantino is the next.
