Andrew Cuomo Wants Robert De Niro to Play him

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is not going to sugarcoat it: He would love to see Robert De Niro portray him in a movie about the coronavirus pandemic.

After De Niro, 76, made the offer on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert this week, Cuomo, 62, was asked about it on the same show Thursday. The politico was flattered, calling the acting legend a “genius” and “phenomenal.”

“I am a big De Niro fan,” Cuomo replied. “He is just phenomenal. The breadth of his ability — just look at all the roles he’s played. He can do anything, right? Deer Hunter. Cape Fear. He can do comedy.”

Cuomo went on to joke that he’ll channel De Niro’s Travis Bickle in Taxi Driver at his next press conference. “When a reporter asks me a question, [I’ll reply]: ‘You talkin’ to me? You, talkin’ to me?!’” he laughed.

Cuomo ended by saying it would “be a treat” to have De Niro play him. “He’s a genius.”
