Most U. S. Presidents are portrayed eventually in movies or TV. I think our new one will insist on playing himself. Let’s review some of the prez’s, both fictional and real, portrayed on the large or small screen.
- He played a skirt chasing prez in Absolute Power and an ex-president in Welcome to Mooseport–both fictional of course, but who was the actor?
- A distinguished Oscar winner, he played the title role on TV’s Mr. President in the early 90s. Who was he?
- Oliver Stone likes making movies about recent presidents. Who played George W. Bush in his movie W?
- Who played Woodrow Wilson in the 1944 movie, Wilson?
- It appears that 24 is coming back to TV. Jack Bauer is busy playing the prez on another show. Who played the POTUS on the first two seasons of 24?
- West Wing was very successful TV series about life in the White House. Who played the President on that show?
