Robbie, this one is going to be for you,” Ford told a huge crowd at the annual “Ford Fest” party in their mother’s sprawling Etobicoke backyard.

“I will be running for mayor of Toronto,” he said to deafening cheers from “Ford Nation” fans.

Doug Ford; copy Trump's political style and platform and run on that.
Or vice versa.  :(

My guess  is for that reason Ontario Conservatives did not encourage DoFo to run for Etobicoke North MPP,

“We don’t need him talking about how great Donald Trump is in the middle of the campaign; that’s not what Patrick ( Brown ) is about,” said one wary PC insider, speaking on condition of anonymity in order to discuss internal deliberations.

Happier days, Rob and Doug go Hollywood!

Damien Lewis to play Rob Ford in upcoming movie
« Reply #478 on: April 10, 2018, 21:48:08 »
This should be interesting to pull off.  Damien Lewis who portrayed Major Winters in BoB and starred in Homeland is taking on the roll (quite literally) of the late TO Mayor Rob Ford.  I look forwards to his take on Rob.

Break out the fat-suit: Ripped Damian Lewis will play obese, crack-smoking former Toronto Mayor Rob Ford in new movie
By Dailymail.com Reporter
15:58 EDT 10 Apr 2018, updated 17:24 EDT 10 Apr 2018

Former 'Homeland' heartthrob Damian Lewis is undergoing a major transformation to take on the role of obese, crack-smoking former Toronto Mayor Rob Ford in the new thriller film 'Run This Town'.

Lewis, who weighs 190 pounds, revealed he is facing a vigorous alteration to turn into the late mayor who, at his heaviest, tipped the scales at 330 pounds.

In an interview with Kit Magazine, Lewis said he was being fitted for a prosthetic so he could bulk up his physique to play Ford.

Lewis said the process takes an entire afternoon and involves 'getting his face and head completely covered in silicon strips, breathing through a small hole near the nose'.

If only Chris Farley were alive to play this role.

Ford Nation is venting it's spleen in the comments section of the story.   ;D. Fun to read the meltdowns.

>  the new thriller film 'Run This Town'.

"Run this town"? Not really. They couldn't fire Rob. Because, unlike an employee, he could not be fired. He was a politician.

So, they took his power and gave it to Deputy Mayor Norm Kelly. Norm Kelly was really the unsung hero of the 2010-2014 era. Rob's only term as mayor. Rob got the headlines, and the Kimmel show. But, Norm ran this town.
That's Rob and Norm ( back to camera ) in the attached pic.

Ford Nation is venting it's spleen in the comments section of the story.   

Maybe Ford Nation will make their comeback soon, and "Run this province"? :)

Deja vu all over again.  :)

The next few months will be interesting, that's for sure.   :nod:

Rob was a character who, if he did not exist, could not be imagined.
