When University of Maryland student Rebecca Martinson's insane email to her Delta Gamma sorority sisters leaked on the Internet, her expletive-ridden rant was just begging to be interpreted by an actor that can pull off the gravitas worthy of the commanding language she used.

Check out Funny Or Die's exclusive video of the Oscar nominee reciting Martinson's rant (although we admit we'd rather hear the words coming from Barack Obama's mouth).
