After receiving widespread praise (and an Emmy nomination) for his turn as Lyndon B. Johnson in All the Way, Bryan Cranston has his sights set on another political figure: Donald Trump!

“I’d like to be considered for that because I think it’d be huge,” the 60-year-old actor said, offering up an excellent Trump impression on the word “yooge” while talking with Giuliana Rancic on the red carpet at the 2016 Emmy Awards.

But who would play the possible First Lady, Melania Trump?

Heidi Klum was just up here … that would be a perfect Melania,” Cranston replied.

Only time will tell if Cranston will get to portray the business mogul-turned-presidential hopeful. But, for now, Cranston is content playing the former president who he called a “very complicated man.”

“No one adjective could be described to him,” he told Rancic. “He was funny … and cold and had a great agenda and had great ambition.”

Cranston is up for outstanding lead actor in a limited series or movie thanks to his portrayal of Johnson.
