Editor's note: This week, some guy named Benjamin Walker joins a long, distinguished line of cinematic presidents in Timur Bekmambetov's new historical drama Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. Here are some of our other favorite fictional POTUSes from film and TV. (If you don't see the videos, please try another browser. We put them in, we promise.)
Jeff Bridges, The Contender
Tess Lynch: Jeff Bridges is really serious about food: childhood hunger, animal style everything, beans (allegedly), and of course, shark steak sandwiches. I like a president who orders confidently, risking mercury poisoning and national Muenster shortages — who knows what he wants and isn't daunted by a challenge. Thinking fast, inspiring entree envy, throwing something crazy on rye: That's a leader.
