Theater Thursday

Wow, somehow this post disappeared. Here it is again.

This one is all about the Presidents.
1) Which fictional movie president would you most like to see sitting in the White House?
Bill Pullman was a pretty damn good president in ID4. I think that's how Bush wants to project himself, though it doesn't quite work for him.

2) Do you think the movies accurately portray the circumstances surrounding the life of the US President?
Not that any of us really know, but I doubt it's quite as dramatic as they portray it. I doubt that his every decision, every nuance of his conversations dramatically affects the course of human history. There are a lot of bullcrap meetings, decisions, and events that he is a part of.

3) A number of TV shows recently have featured the POTUS as a main character (The West Wing, 24). Would you accept any of them as the real US President?
I don't know how I would feel about Martin Sheen's ability to govern, but I'm pretty sure he could make a good run at getting elected if he really wanted to.
BONUS) What actor would you like to get the chance to play a US President on screen?
How about Tom Hanks as the prezzy who falls in love via email with the leader of a country around the corner, maybe some quaint island nation. That nation's leader? Meg Ryan. Get Ephron on the phone.
