Robert De Niro Wants to Play Andrew Cuomo in a COVID-Themed Movie


A bearded Robert De Niro video chatted with Stephen Colbert on “The Late Show” and let him know that if a movie was made about the current situation, he’d like to play New York Governor Andrew Cuomo. As De Niro sees it, “He's doing what any president should do.”
