Mack had always admired Richard Milhous Nixon, starting with the Checkers speech, but especially after the disgraced ex-president had begun to emerge as an elder statesman. “The man won’t give up,” says Mack, noting that even President Clinton, whose wife, Hillary Rodham, had worked on the Watergate investigation for the House Judiciary Committee, had invited the former President to the White House for consultations. When Mack heard they were making the Frost/Nixon movie, he drove himself across the country and banged on doors in LA until they said he could try out for the lead role. He claims he almost got it, and that even Ron Howard admits that he–Mack–looks a lot more like Nixon than does Frank Langella. Now, back at the gas station in Maynard, Mass, if you tell Mack he looks like Nixon, you could almost swear the ol’ cuss is smiling.
