Robert De Niro would portray New York Governor Andrew Cuomo in a movie about the coronavirus pandemic that driver Stephen Colbert is planning on his Late Night Show .
The veteran actor was the guest on Wednesday, May 6, on A Late Night Show with Stephen at Home , the remote version of the popular Stephen Colbert show.
Throughout his show, Stephen Colbert has been asking his guests who they would like to play when it comes to making a movie about the corona virus pandemic.
This time, the driver asked De Niro the question, to which he replied: the governor of New York, Andrew Cuomo.
Following this statement, Colbert asked him if he would one day expect to see Cuomo as president, to which the actor was positive.
In the interview, De Niro also shared how he has lived the quarantine, stressing that he has stayed at home, reading scripts and doing a little exercise.
In addition, he gave his perspective on New York becoming one of the cities most affected by the virus in the United States and how the government of the North American country reacted in the worst way to the virus.
It is not the first time that De Niro shows his liking for Cuomo and an evident rejection of the country’s presidency, since previously in an interview for CNN , the actor shared his position on the global coronavirus pandemic and on how he thinks the government.
The United States has responded inadequately to this crisis. In this statement, the discontent with President Donald Trump was very clear and he continued to praise the New York governor and his drastic measures in the face of the crisis.
Cuomo is doing a great job. It is very refreshing to see him speak and take charge, whatever happens … He took action.
