Check out the guy playing Rob Ford in some play

KRON 4 –  The role of Rob Ford has been cast in upcoming new musical comedy about Toronto’s infamous mayor.

“Rob Ford the Musical: Birth of A Ford Nation” is set to debut at Toronto’s Factory Theatre on Sept. 16, just over a month before Ford seeks re-election Oct. 27. It will run through Sept. 28.

The 90-minute show has 10 original tunes and sees a “spiritual guide” leading Ford through the past year of his tumultuous life – including his admitted drug use and stint in rehab.

Sheldon Bergstrom, a portly 42-year-old Canadian, says he begged the producers to try out. Nearly 100 other actors tried out. Writer Brett McCaig says that resemblance, as well as Bergstrom’s talent, got him the part.

I’m not gonna lie, the more I look at this dude the more I hate the casting decision. Just a shot against the bow of the Rob Ford ship by these pinko bastards that feel that smoking crack is “immature” and makes you “unfit to lead.” Clearly this guy is acting and not immersing himself into the role because anyone who knows Rob Ford knows that Rob Ford is a lover of life and living it to the fullest. If you aren’t gonna do that way, you’re doing him a major disservice. Hell, the guy doesn’t even have deep, oceanic blue eyes. How you gonna do Rob Ford like that? I mean the guy is making a raspberry face in the promo picture like he just farted. If Rob Ford farts he wants you to smell it and he’s going to be laughing and trying to see if he fart even louder. That’s the Rob Ford way.
