Jim Gaffigan to play infamously crack-loving mayor Rob Ford

Disreputable, distended, and loaded with some pretty nasty stuff, Rob Ford is the Hot Pocket of Canadian mayors. So it only makes sense that now Jim Gaffigan is going to play him.

According to Variety, Gaffigan has signed on to play the late Toronto mayor in an AMC limited series. Letterkenny and The Sinner writer Jesse McKeown is scripting the dark comedy, which will trace the rise and fall of the ever-flushed, infamously substance-addicted Torontonian.

Ford was also recently played by Damian Lewis in the film Run This Town, but this is expected to be the first portrayal not to use an absolutely atrocious fat suit.
