All afternoon I’ve been asking KOOL listeners: who’s your favorite movie President? Here’s the list they came up with, counting down from #10. You might want to consider renting one of these movies tonight instead of watching the election results. At least it has a definite time it will end!
And check out my pick for the meanest President on film.
10. John Travolta – Primary Colors
9 . Henry Fonda – Fail Safe
8. Jack Nicholson – Mars Attacks
7. James Garner – My Fellow Americans (with Jack Lemmon)
6. Peter Sellers – Dr. Strangelove
5. Morgan Freeman – Deep Impact
4. Michael Douglas – The American President
3. Harrison Ford – Air Force One
2. Bill Pullman – Independence Day
1. Kevin Kline – Dave
And my choice for one of the the meanest movie presidents of all time:
Gene Hackman – Absolute Power
