Robert De Niro recently went on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert to update the talk show host on his life in quarantine and   share what he’s been doing to keep busy.

During the interview, one of the questions Colbert asked De Niro was who he would like to play if there were ever a movie about the coronavirus pandemic. Robert stated that he would like to play New York Governor Andrew Cuomo. He expands on his answer, saying, “He’s doing what a president should do.” He also added, “Though I’m for Biden and I want everything to go well for Biden, at least we have a person who is a very capable backup, if you will. If God forbid anything were to change, he’s good for the job. He’s doing what any president should do.”
