Nicole Seah's starring in local film 1965: Here are five politicians we'd like to see on the big screen
Former opposition politician Nicole Seah is making her debut on the big screen in in local production 1965.
Seah, whose popularity rose during the 2011 General Election, will play the main supporting role of Mei - the wife of Qi Yuwu's police inspector character.
The movie's executive producer Daniel Yun said:
"I noticed something about Nicole. She has that something that translated on screen and in print.
"I told myself when she was no longer in politics, I would want to work with her. The opportunity came when I read she has left politics and was based in Bangkok."
That inspired us to come up with a tongue-in-cheek list of the politicians we'd like to see on the big screen.
1. Baey Yam Keng
You've seen him in selfies and more recently, a play called Like Me. I Like.
So the big screen isn't too much of a stretch. And we know he has several (actually, many) good angles.
So let's recap: He's got the romantic hero-type good looks, the fan base and he can act.
Nothing more needed?
2. PM Lee Hsien Loong and Workers' Party chief Low Thia Khiang
Can anyone imagine a buddy cop movie with the both of them?
We can imagine the duo bickering but making up at the end.
Anyway, we already have a preview of some memorable dialogue: Remember the "co-driver" and "slap the driver" analogies making the rounds during the 2011 elections?
Isn't that a ready-made punchline for this hypothetical movie?
3. Tin Pei Ling
Tin Pei Ling, with or without her infamous Kate Spade bag, could totally pull off that girl-next-door look.
4. Teo Ser Luck
If anyone is casting for an earnest-looking father, Teo Ser Luck is your man.
We can totally imagine him trying to coach his son/daughter through the PSLE examinations.
