With all eyes on politics today, many new films and current television shows are highlighting actors as Presidents and how they would handle global situations. Remember Morgan Freeman in Deep Impact? That deep, calming grandpa voice could get us through any crisis.

Most disaster films like Independence Day and Geostorm call on a President to speak to the people, to brace themselves for an apocalyptic disaster. It requires an actor to step up (to the podium) and deliver a speech of a lifetime because it literally could be the end of days.
