    true to a point, although, i believe he was actually playing a bill clinton like politician named jack stanton. Point taken, howver. He was a decent choice. maybe not southern enough.

    Travolta was good in that role, but another suggestion would be a great actor who can play just about any Southerner with as much credibility as anyone out there: Billy Bob Thornton.

    Billy Bob actually played a George W Bush like politician in Love Actually. I agree he could pull off Slick Willy. Maybe have to add some girth and stature, but he could do it nicely.

    Billy Bob's character in Love Actually seemed to be a mix of both Bush and Clinton (the womanizing aspects).

    I think Travolta would be a good pick to play Bill so props for getting him in that role. [​IMG]

    If you must play a "game," please do so in Polls. Do not start such a thread in the Movies section.

    For Bill Clinton, I think David Morse would be PERFECT.

    people post threads dealing with hypothetical subjects all the time in the movie section. What is the best book not made into a movie, worst sequel choices etc... i dont see a difference between this thread and other such discussions.
