The Artist Gets Re-Imagined To Star Mitt Romney

Often, Hollywood gets political. Stars speak out on issues; movies have messages. But here we bring you a case of politics going Hollywood. In honor of Oscars The Chris Matthews Show re-envisioned tonight's front-runner for Best Picture -- the silent, black-and-white ode to nostalgia The Artist -- as a film starring Mitt Romney titled "Mitt: Better Off Mute." So how does Mitt do when he's (mostly) non-verbal. Check it out for after the jump. Watch for wonder-dog Uggie and dashing Frenchman star Jean Dujardin.

We'd still pick Dujardin to star in our movie over Romney. And we'd pick Uggie over them all.
