(CNN) – As the guessing game continues on who Saturday Night Live has tapped to play Barack Obama, Mike Huckabee said Friday night it’s clear who should play him.
"They were saying if I couldn't show up they were going to either get Brad Pitt or George Clooney," the Republican presidential candidate, who's set to appear on the show Saturday night, joked with reporters.
"People are always running into me at airports, aren't you Brad Pitt? I know I look just like him," Huckabee continued.
The show, which is set to return Saturday after a three month hiatus due to the writers strike, has frantically sought an actor to play the Democratic presidential frontrunner. Obama played himself in the show last November. (Related video: CNN's Jeanne Moos goes looking for an Obama lookalike)
Huckabee said he "wouldn't venture a guess" on who SNL Executive Producer Lorne Michiels will choose to play the Illinois senator.

About as meaningful and impressive as Ralph................uh, Nader.
you know, im not a huge Huck fan, but you gotta admire his sense of humor.
Not prez material, but deffinantly not a stick in the mud
Check it out, please. Get to know the real John McCain and learn why the New York Times could think McCain was capable of all the things they wrote about.
... Snoop Dogg!
Now this is a guy with a good sense of humor
Everybody likes Huckabee just not as president.
I wonder if SNL is setting Huckabee up here?
Hilarious ! ... Brad Pitt ? ... George Clooney? ... More like Gomer Pyle !!
When will Americans(Republicans) realise that in Mccain they have cruelty and foul language? I dont support Castro but I would never wish someone to die. I do hope that a miracle will put Huckabee ahead....Come on Republicans!
Huckabee looks very much like Kevin Spacey whose skills at imitation would produce a clone.
charlie daniels, he also thinks he is a guitar player.
Even though I don't agree with many of his conservative stances on certain issues, Huckabee is very likable and down to earth. He is engaging and pleasant to listen to. He seems like a good guy, where McCain has an arrogant and angry disposition.
