7. Tom Beck (“Deep Impact”, played by Morgan Freeman)

Tom Beck isn’t on this list because he was a great President (hell, he did let an asteroid nearly wipe out mankind, after all), but he’s on this list because he was played by Morgan Freeman, and what’s better than the very notion of listening to Morgan Freeman give speeches? This might just be the very first time that people stayed awake during the State of the Union. Parents could use the President’s weekly fireside chats to lull their kids to sleep. Although it sure would have been nice if he didn’t almost get us all killed during that whole asteroid mess, though…

    Damn, I wrote “Top 7 Fictional Presidents” articles years ago for another site and we definitely see eye to eye on Kovic, Palmer, Marshall, and Whitmore (Lone Star!!!!).

      You only ended up with 7, too? Haha.

        In that case, the magazine had a series of “Top 7″ articles. I think top two were President Muffley from “Dr. Strangelove” and Unnamed President from “Fail/Safe” and somewhere down the chain was Bennett from “Clear and Present Danger”. Was meant to be memorable as opposed to guys we’d want to see in office

          It took me a long time to come up with that list, too. I had to go to IMDB.com and scroll through a bunch of movies featuring Presidents. But I always knew Abe would end up at #1, though. I mean, vampire slayer. Who can beat that?
