John Mulaney talked to Jimmy Fallon about Pete Buttigieg’s comment about Mulaney being his ideal choice to play him in a biopic.
Appearing on The Tonight Show Mulaney said, “I’m hoping for it. I’ve been offered two movies and I am in both of them. I am hoping for it. I think it’s cool. I’m from the midwest and he’s the mayor of South Bend.”
As I accept all movies offered (2 so far) I accept.

Mulaney says he received grief after posting it on Twitter from some democrats who believe Buttigieg isn’t progress enough.
Mulaney said, “He’s an openly gay veteran of the military so it’s a real good idea to turn on him violently, other Democrats, stupid idiots.”
