Edie Falco Political (Acting) Background Falco guest starred on 30 Rock this season as Celeste Cunningham, a Democratic congresswoman from Vermont. Celeste is an anti-big business Democrat with her own Lifetime movie, A Dog Took My Face And Gave Me A Better Face To Change The World: The Celeste Cunningham Story. Not to mention, she looks fantastic in a pantsuit. Previously, she starred on The Sopranos as the wife of Mafia kingpin Tony Soprano. (We're not saying that being the wife of the president of the United States is a similar experience, but there are probably some emotional parallels in there somewhere.) Why We'd Cast Her There were more obvious choices, such as the previously mentioned Glenn Close/Meryl Streep option, but we think that the three-time Emmy Award winner has what it takes to play a tough, driven, complex woman. Getting Hillary's accent right might be a little difficult, but we'd give her a shot. Who would you cast as Hillary Clinton?
