Billy Crystal appeared on “The Late Show” with David Letterman Friday night, doing his best to emulate Letterman’s most sought-after guest– Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney.
Apparently growing desperate, Letterman has taken to telling crowds not to vote for the Republican until he appears as a guest on his show. Despite Letterman’s best efforts, however, Romney remains uninterested.
On Friday night, actor/writer/producer/director/comedian Billy Crystal solved that problem by holding a large photo of Mitt Romney in front of his face, speaking through a hole he had cut out around the mouth.
“You can ask me whatever you want,” Crystal began, making “kissy” lips. After Crystal asked what the hardest part of being president would be, the actor joked: “Moving into a smaller house.”
He continued: “This president doesn’t get it…We’ve got to downsize. I’m downsizing, like most Americans have to. I’ve got five boys, I’m downsizing to three. Two of them are going to the [Cayman Islands] to watch my loot…”

This isn’t the first time Letterman has laughed as a guest impersonated the Republican nominee. Less than a week ago well-known actor and comedian Jack Black waltzed onto “The Late Show” with his jeans pulled unnaturally high, awkwardly impersonating Mitt Romney.
Many point out that if Letterman really wants to score the interview, it likely wouldn’t hurt if he stopped claiming, for instance, that Romney “hasn’t paid a nickel in federal income tax” as he did on Friday night.
“That’s right, we have a felon running for president,” Letterman added, echoing Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and Obama campaign manager Stephanie Cutter.
Mitt Romney’s 2011 tax return show he paid $1.95 million in federal income taxes and donated a little over $4 million– roughly 30% of his income– to charity
