If you ran for President, who would be your running mate?

Nathan Lane: Matthew Broderick because he’s very smart, funny and attractive. We’d be “the Deeply Shallow Candidates.”

Nicole Richie: Marilyn Manson. He’s a genius. The makeup is very out there, but I’m always interested when he opens his mouth.

Jim Carrey: My best friend, Wayne. Our slogan would be, “Enough already.” Let’s take $87 billion and do some good in the world.

Rosario Dawson: Andre 3000. Just listen to his lyrics. The world would be a much better place if people were as honest as he is.

Sean Astin: I’d pick my wife. It’s important to surround yourself with people smarter than you.

Jill Hennessy(Crossing Jordan): Between Ellen DeGeneres and Jon Stewart—they’re articulate, well-spoken and funny as hell.

Kwame Jackson (The Apprentice): [Fellow contestant] Troy McClain. I can trust him. And Mr. Trump would be Secretary of Media Hype.

Julia Stiles: Sacha Baron Cohen, probably not as [his alter ego] Ali G.

Ben Stiller: I like Larry David as my running mate. I think he’s dying for the chance. But we’d be the worst ticket ever.

Serena Williams: My sister Venus—she’s a good speaker. But we’d have too much fun in the White House, partying all night.

Marlon Wayans: Oprah. She could kill two birds with one stone as the first woman [Vice] President and the first black [Vice] President.

Jennifer Love Hewitt: Sponge Bob Square Pants. A good-natured, bright yellow sea sponge would definitely be noticed.

Freddy Rodriguez (Six Feet Under): Bill Clinton. If there were no term limits, he would have been President until he died.

Camryn Manheim: It’s a tie between Susan Sarandon and Queen Latifah, the coolest chicks I know.

Jason Biggs: Based on recent box office numbers, I’d go with Spider-Man. Instead of mudslinging, he’d be into webslinging.

Tim Robbins: My son Jack, because I just like hanging out with him.

LeAnn Rimes: Julia Roberts, because in all of her movies she’s able to sway men into doing what she wants.

Jamie Foxx: P. Diddy. We would turn the whole world into an afterparty and give everybody a little money so they could get in.

Paris Hilton: Angelina Jolie. She really uses who she is to help people, and that’s very honorable.

Ben Affleck: Matt Damon would be a good VP. He’s shorter than me—that would make me look presidential by comparison.
