With all of the back and forth between politicians and political talk shows, I’m looking for a change! Wouldn’t it be cool if one of these great movie presidents could run?
8. JACK LEMON- MY FELLOW AMERICANS (1996)
Sure, he was only given one term by his constituents in the film, but how can you not like Jack as the leader of the free world?
7. AARON ECKHART- OLYMPUS HAS FALLEN (2013)
My wife requested that he be on this list. I think that she may have a crush on him, but I’m ok with this president- because he’ll pick up a gun and fight!
6. JACK NICHOLSON- MARS ATTACKS (1996)
Although he played a double role in this film, there is something comforting about good ol’ Jack Nicholson as President. Although as a negotiator, it didn’t go well….
5. KEVIN KLINE- DAVE (1993)
Sure, he wasn’t the ACTUAL president, but he did a nice job balancing the budget and even stole the First Lady’s heart!
4. MORGAN FREEMAN- DEEP IMPACT (1998)
“Life will go on. We will prevail.” I found peace with his speech even though there isn’t an asteroid hurtling toward us.
3. MICHAEL DOUGLAS- THE AMERICAN PRESIDENT (1995)
Widower Andrew Shepard falls for lobbyist Sydney Ellen Wade. A president dating a lobbyist in the White House?! That sounds as crazy as Donald Trump running for President. Whaaaaa????????
2. BILL PULLMAN- INDEPENDENCE DAY (1996)
This President lead an air assault against aliens, so…come on!
1. HARRISON FORD- AIR FORCE ONE (1997)
President Han Solo fighting terrorists. I’ve got four words as to why he’s at number one, “get off my plane”.
