Cool Videos

Every year there's at least a couple of movies that have the President of the United States (fictional and real) in them but this year you've got OLYMPUS HAS FALLEN with Aaron Eckhart, WHITE HOUSE DOWN with Jamie Foxx tomorrow and THE BUTLER is out in August featuring six different Presidents with everyone from John Cusack as Richard Nixon to Alan Rickman as Ronald Reagan.

But how will they compare to previous movie Presidents? Especially the classic ones in this fantastic new JoBlo.com video exclusive of Top 10 Movie Presidents. There have been a ton of movie Presidents so your favorite portrayal of the POTUS may have been left out but the video is a great mix of both real life and pure "movie" Presidents. The Top Ten list also has a variety of comedic and dramatic Presidents as well as one leader of the free world who ends up at number one that you would not want to f*ck with.

Hail to the Movie Chiefs!

Extra Tidbit: Although he doesn't become President until the end one of my favorites not on the list is John Travolta's Governor Jack Stanton in PRIMARY COLORS.

Would've liked if you could do something besides the Lincoln trailer. Missing from this list are Merkin Muffley, Dave Kovic as Bill Mitchell, and Duane Elizando Mountain Dew Herbert Camacho, though I'd make a case for "George W. Bush," the character, not the man, or at least his dad.

"I want the people to know that they still have 2 out of 3 branches of the government working for them, and that ain't bad."

I recall the Joblo movie show once did a much better list of best fictional U.S. Presidents and that included President Camacho and had Peter sellers from Dr. Strangelove at Number 1. Whatever this list wont mean anything next year when Charlie Sheen becomes the greatest President in History in Machete Kills!!!

I second that, that was a really good movie. However, it feels like if the President was suspected of murder like in the film, there would be much bigger uproar in the media, Eastwood made it more intimate in scope.

WTF?!

How DARE you leave President Camacho off this list. I hope he kicks your smart balls all the way up to the roof of your smart mouth, and throws your ass in jail!!

I love Greenwood's JFK. He doesn't attempt any sort of distracting JFK impression, but smartly focuses on the tensions and doubts that would have driven a lesser President mad, and the wit, patience, and fortitude needed to keep the world from igniting at that time.

Me I'd have also had in my Top 5 Barry Bostwick in FDR: American Badass. Too damn funny, and more accurate to history than you'd think.

Cool list

but Daniel Day-Lewis should have been #1, IMO. He killed it as Lincoln.

I absolutely love Jerry Goldsmith's Air Force One theme; first place is well-deserved. Props for including President Colbert in the list, Monsters vs Aliens is very underrated. I'd also put Jeff Bridges as President Jackson Evans from The Contender somewhere on that list. Jerry Springer played the president in a really, really bad Dolph Lundgren direct-to-DVD movie. But Jerry Springer as the president...what a wonderful thought that is.
