We’re old enough to remember when a bunch of Hollywood actors like Martin Sheen, who played the president on TV, thought they could flip the Electoral College to Hillary Clinton by shooting a video.

Well, they couldn’t swing President Jed Bartlet this time around for a video defending Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, but they did manage to come up with “Law and Order” star Sam Waterston rallying the masses to take to the streets if Rosenstein is fired by President Trump.

It’s nice that CNN is doing casting announcements now:

America’s best known TV prosecutor came out of retirement Monday with a call to action in defense of embattled Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.

Speaking direct to camera in a new two-minute web video, Sam Waterston — who played Manhattan district attorney Jack McCoy on NBC’s hit crime series “Law & Order” for 16 years — expressed concern about reports that President Donald Trump is considering firing Rosenstein and urged people to commit to peaceful protests if that happens.

Here’s the spot if anyone’s interested:

“We need to be ready to take to the streets?” When hasn’t the Left been in the streets since November 2016?
