Actors Who Have Played United States Presidents - There are many actors who have played United States presidents. The full list goes back to 1923 when actor Duke R. Lee played George Washington in the movie “In the Days of Daniel Boone” which is a classic, although silent. The list we compiled shows who played presidents in films since 2000.
It seems that playing the leader of America is a popular acting role. One of my favorites is Jon Voight who played Franklin D. Roosevelt in the 2001 Pearl Harbor movie. Another one is Tom Selleck who played Dwight D. Eisenhower in “Ike: Countdown to D-Day”.
