    Actually he also played the President when he was on the hospital bed and as he walked in a the beginning of the movie.

    What about Henry Fonda as Abe Lincoln?

    Another Abe was Hal Holbrook and Gregory Peck in The Blue and The Gray

    Or is this discussion only about people playing a fictitious president?

    Then how about Donald Pleasance in Escape from New York ?

    Beliefs are dangerous. Beliefs allow the mind to stop functioning. A non-functioning mind is clinically dead. Believe in nothing.
