Albany: The movie

But we thought, why not assemble an ensemble of experienced actors to play the key roles? With help from reader submissions, here’s our dream cast.
State Senate Majority Leader John Flanagan and Kenneth Branagh.
Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie and Ice Cube.
State Senate Independent Democratic Conference Leader Jeff Klein and George Hamilton.
State Senate Democratic Leader Andrea Stewart-Cousins and Viola Davis.
State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman and Neal McDonough.
State Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli and Jeffrey DeMunn.
Lt. Gov. Kathy Hochul and Jane Seymour.
Former U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara and Irrfan Khan.
