Top 10 Movie Presidents

Jul 03, 2013

Lots of different actors have sat behind the desk of the oval office over the years playing the leader of the free world, check out the Top 10 Movie Presidents!

No.10: Jamie Foxx (White House Down)

Jamie Foxx is a President forced to let an ex-soldier protect him as they grab some guns and try to fend off the bad guys in this shoot-em-up, feel-good film.

No.9:  Jack Nicholson (Mars Attacks!)

Although he's not the first name that comes to mind for President, Jack Nicholson took on the role for Mars Attacks!

No.8: Bruce Greenwood (National Treasure)

Bruce Greenwood is probably a familiar face by now, and he looks right at home as the President in National Treasure

No.7: Jonathon Pryce (G.I. Joe)

Veteran British actor Jonathon Pryce puts on his best American accent to play not only the President, but also Cobra Commander disguised as the President in G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, and G.I. Joe Retaliation

No.6: Daniel Day-Lewis (Lincoln)

Daniel Day-Lewis is no stranger to awards, and his performance in Lincoln made everyone sit up and pay attention to history (for once)

No.5: Kevin Kline (Dave)

What if the President died and a much kinder, smarter guy who just happened to be his lookalike stepped in? Kevin Kline makes us fall in love with his everyman turned First man.

No.4: Michael Douglas (The American President)

The American President is a sweet movie about a widowed president falling in love again, there's no way your heart won't melt!

No.3: Bill Pullman (Independence Day)

Independence Day is a classic flick to put on when you're feeling patriotic, and Bill Pullman is the guy in charge of the nation (although not who saves the day)

No.2: Harrison Ford (Air Force One)

"Red, White & Blue, I'm counting on you!" Air Force One may be cheezy, but Harrison Ford is the kind of quietly confident hero you want in charge.

No.1: Morgan Freeman (Deep Impact)

When faced with earth's immediate demise, who could be more trustworthy than Morgan Freeman as president?
