If the life of alleged cop killer Christopher Dorner were made into a film, what actor would portray him? Anthony Anderson said he’d be willing to step into the role.

After exiting a Los Angeles restaurant, the Guys With Kids star stopped to talk to a TMZ photographer who asked him if he’d be willing to play Dorner since they resembled each other. "I'm always up for a good role, brother," he said to the photographer. On if a good script could be written for such a film, Anderson, who looked a bit uncomfortable about being questioned in regards to Dorner, said: “I have no idea.”

Dorner, a former Los Angeles police officer, was accused of killing four people, including a Riverside, California, police officer and a sheriff’s deputy. After being on the run for over a week, the accused murderer’s life came to an end after the cabin he was occupying caught on fire following a gunfight with law enforcement.
