I've never given this any thought but, who are the Best Fictional Presidents?
Barack Obama and Mitt Romney may have thought this election season has been tough, but a new survey by Thecredits.org reveals they might have had an even harder time had they been going toe to toe with Hollywood’s best fictional presidents. Harrison Ford’s tough “Air Force One” Commander in Chief James Marshall came out on top as the best Hollywood U.S. President, with 23% of the vote.
Behind Ford was Morgan Freeman as President Beck in “Deep Impact,” then Bill Pullman’s “Independence Day” President Whitmore.
Female candidates were put on the ballot, but they didn’t fare well, taking the three last places. They were Cherry Jones (Fox’s “24”), Geena Davis (ABC’s “Commander in Chief”) and Mary McDonnell in (SyFy’s “Battlestar Gallactica”).
The survey also opened up the voting to any actor, not just those who had played a president. Under that condition, Denzel Washington was number one, followed by Morgan Freeman and a two-way tie for third between Clint Eastwood and Harrison Ford. Both Eastwood and Ford were favored by Romney supporters, while women heavily favored Washington. Samuel L. Jackson from “Snakes on a Plane” is the preferred president elect if a zombie apocalyptic crises arises, with 19%. Obama supporters strongly favored Jackson, at 23%, while Milla Jovovich, from “Resident Evil” was a close second with 18%. She got more votes from registered Independents (22%) than any candidate. Tom Cruise, from “War of the Worlds,” was right behind her at 17%. Romney supporters and undecided voters opted for Cruise most, at 16% and 24% respectively.
