    Ron Howard recently shot a sketch reuniting several SNL cast members on FunnyOrDie.com. It involves President Obama and his wife, Michelle (played by Fred Armisen and Maya Rudolph) being visited by former Presidents George Bush (played by Will Ferrell), Bill Clinton (Darrell Hammond), George Bush Sr. (Dana Carvey) Jimmy Carter (Dan Aykroyd), Gerald Ford (Chevy Chase), and Ronald Reagan (Jim Carrey, who although not a cast member, did host in 1996, and had an appearance with the Foo Fighters in 2003).


    The sketch serves as a platform to promote the proposed Consumer Financial Protection Agency and financial reform in general.


    You can watch the sketch here. Don't forget to watch the "Making Of" video, and the extended scene with Dana Carvey.

    Once again Dave, you beat me to the switch. Good work.

    Somebody had to play Reagan, so why not Jim Carrey? After all, Phil Hartman and Charles Rocket are no longer with us, Randy Quaid is facing jail time, and Joe Piscopo is ...Joe Piscopo.

    Well, so is Reagan. I think that about evens out.


    So, remember,


    Zombie Phil Hartman is Zombie Ronald Reagan

    I really liked that. Was that the first time Aykroyd portrayed Carter since he was President?
