You can't. Python is NOT C/C++/Java or whatever.
If you have a variable, x, and you want to "copy" it
to another variable, y. Use assignment.
Most (if not all) objects in python a referenced.
A lot of types are also immutable.
Describe your problem, perhaps we may be able to
provide you a "better" solution ? Can I statically re-cast
an object into a different type by getting the address
of another object .... is not a very good problem.
If you're after, coercing one type into another, for example:
>>> x = 2
>>> y = "2"
>>> z = int(y)
-- "Problems are solved by method"
