White House Press Secretary Jay Carney turned the world upside down Monday by returning from Christmas break with newly sprouted facial hair. It’s unclear how far he’ll take it or whether he’ll get a cameo on Duck Dynasty. But we’ve decided to host a Scooby Doo casting call and have taken the liberty of choosing characters from the Washington Press Corps and beyond.

See who made the cut.



From L to R: Bloomberg’s Margaret Carlson as Velma, Jay Carney as Shaggy, WaPo’s Gene Weingarten and Scooby, CNN’s John King as Fred and NBC’s Savannah Guthrie as Daphne.
