Casting for The Beverly Hillbillies

Casting Director Notepad

The Beverly Hillbillies

Granny (Daisy May Moses)
Rick Perry - The laughable Confederate Rebel still "fightin' the Yankees."

Jethro Bodine
Herman Cain - The homespun, poetic oaf who comes up with all kinds of crazy, cheesy ideas.

Elly May Clampett
Jon Huntsman - The most feminine member of the cast. Lover of "critters" and the outdoors.

J.D. "Jed" Clampett
Joe Scarborough - Generally clueless, but still tries to bridge the gap between the hillbillies and the normal world. (It is noted that no Republican presidential candidate can be cast for this role.)

Mr. Drysdale (Milburn)
Mitt Romney - "Corporations are People!"

Mrs. Drysdale (Margaret)
Peggy Noonan - "Keep those hillbillies away from me, Milburn!"

Jane Hathaway
Rachel Maddow - Who else?

Additional casting notes: In the original series there is an episode titled The Flying Saucer. Ron and Rand Paul would be perfect for two of the 'Martians'. (They are clearly not of this world.) Michele Bachmann is a consideration for the third Martian for her scary eyes. Duke, the Clampetts' hound dog: Chris Christie. Jethrine Bodine, Jethro's twin sister: Sarah Palin.
