Which of the Fictional Presidents Are You?
Starring as the president of the United States can be difficult, but there are certainly ones that stick out in our minds. We’re talking of course about the actors who played fictional presidents in either a TV or movie. Portraying the American president and showing what it’s like to either run a presidential campaign or be an acting president takes a certain cache. Well, for the most part anyway, as there have been some funny and off-kilter presidents on the big or little screens.
But if you’re curious if you should be the vice president or the president, maybe you should base your position on a fictional president. Take a ride in Air Force One, walk down the West Wing, and know the White House like the back of your hand. See what it’s like to have Secret Service agents and how to make the Oval Office your own. Think you know which of the fictional presidents you’re most like? Take this quiz to find out.
Fictional presidents have been portrayed by many actors and actresses over many years. Playing the commander-in-chief is a tall task, but many actors have taken a crack at it. Whether they are playing an elected president, a former president, the chief executive, or the leader of the free world, it's difficult. But being the actual president has its perks, especially with some great writing behind you.
People tend to want their fictional presidents to have some grace and power. Taking a ride on Air Force One to see what it's really like but also giving a commanding press conference from there is something you might see in a movie. The first female president is also something we've seen on TV and in the movies. There tend to be discussions with other countries, like Russia and the Soviet Union. There might be an attack on the White House (perhaps an alien invasion) or a correspondent with the prime minister of a foreign country. Regardless, there are some wild scenarios we've seen fictional presidents have to deal with.
