Attention thespians: Stop working on that Christopher Walken impersonation and start practicing your Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. The advocacy group Fuel for Truth is hosting an Ahmadinejad look-alike contest tonight as part of a protest rally, and you'll want to be in top Iranian President form.

The rally aims to address yesterday's shooting at D.C.'s Holocaust museum, Iran's nuclear agenda and Ahmadinejad's potential reelection. That's a lot to tackle in one evening, but Fuel for Truth has an ambitious itinerary. Participants will gather at 6pm in Times Square and then migrate to Arena nightclub by 7pm to hear speakers (including former Green Beret Terry Schappert), witness a "multimedia presentation" (according to Fuel for Truth's Joe Richards) and, finally, compete for the Best Fake Mahmoud Ahmadinejad crown.
