    Ah…Jack Lemmon and James Garner in My Fellow Americans – haven’t seen that film in a long while but I remember really enjoying it.

    Great choice for number – Henry Fonda is one of my favourite actors. I like the inclusion of the comic personas – Peter Sellers and Jack Nicholson (even though I really don’t like Mars Attacks).

    Some fantastic actors – many very iconic stars – have played the President it seems!

      Totally! The more I’ve watched “Mars Attacks!” as I have gotten older, the more I really appreciate it, and really understand what Burton is going for. But I mean, Henry Fonda as the President in “Fail/Safe”, toughest decision ever?

    Lee Tracy in The Best Man is as good as any of these.
