Actor Dennis Haysbert officially as crazy as Pedro Cerano

The actor portrayed fictional President David Palmer on FOX’s 24, and he thinks that role helped pave the way for current Democratic Presidential hopeful, Barack Obama.

Said Haysbert, to whomever would listen, “If anything, my portrayal of David Palmer, I think, may have helped open the eyes of the American people. And I mean the American people from across the board — from the poorest to the richest, every color and creed, every religious base — to prove the possibility there could be an African-American president, a female president, any type of president that puts the people first.” Meanwhile, Keifer Sutherland scoffed, and was forced to remind the actor that 24 is a television show by torturing him with a ball-peen hammer.
