Kevin Nealon Political (Acting) Background His character on Weeds used to be on the Town Council. Other than that, his political resume is rather short. Why We'd Cast Him To be perfectly blunt, we chose him for the expression in this photo. This look of pursed-lipped exasperation just screams John McCain to us. Slap on a white-haired wig and he's pretty darn close. That said, there was some dissent in the Zap2it ranks on this one. J.K. Simmons (The Closer, Spider-Man) was also a top candidate. Who would you cast as John McCain?
