Larry King to Moderate Fake GOP Debate For Funny or Die, Yahoo!

Former CNN “Larry King Live” host Larry King has been tapped to moderate a GOP primary debate… sort of. King will moderate a spoof debate presented by Funny or Die and Yahoo! The debate, dubbed the “Yahoo News/Funny or Die Presidential GOP Online Internet Cyber Debate” will debut on the sites Friday morning.

All of the candidates will be played by comedians, including some big names. Newt Gingrich will be portrayed by former “SNL” star Horatio Sanz, Patrick Warburton will play Rick Santorum and boxer Mike Tyson will play Herman Cain, despite his absence from the actual GOP race.

King will play the straight man, trying to keep order among the madness.
