Al Gore = Jack Bauer

A reader sent through a link to this interview with Al Gore and Davis Guggenheim, the director of "An Inconvenient Truth." The two sat down together for the latest installment of "Unscripted" on AOL's Moviefone.

At the very end of the interview Gore is stumped by the question, "If you were to cast any actor to play you in a movie, who would it be?" But Guggenheim, who directed the first three seasons of the hit TV show "24" with Kiefer Sutherland, jumps in to compare Gore to Bauer:

"And I thought about it, and I was like, well, it's kind of like watching Al Gore, going from city to city trying to save the world and no one will listen. And I was like, well, the only difference is really, that with 24 it's pretend, and this is real."
