The Bodyguard': Herman Cain edition

News

In 1992 Kevin Costner and Whitney Houston touched America's heart by pushing the boundaries of race and love in "The Bodyguard." Herman Cain's story isn't quite like that. Mostly because he's a man rather than a pop diva and his bodyguard is an ex convict.

TMZ originally broke the story that Kristian Otto Herzog, former bodyguard to Mel Gibson's lover Oksana Grigorieva, is an on-and-off member of Cain's security detail. Herzog was convicted for impersonating a police officer in 2009.

From TMZ:

Sources connected to the Cain camp tell us ... Herzog may have been able to slip through the screening process because the campaign was in a "rush" to find extra security and didn't have time to perform a more thorough background check.

It's not as romantic. But could make for a fairly interesting movie with the right casting.
