Gary Shandling from Capt. America? The Pres. from Scandal? Cherry Jones from 24? Jamie Foxx in White House Down?

Gary Shandling in Captain America: The Winter Soldier is a United States Senator, not the President. The President in the MCU is Matthew Ellis,

Ah. My bad.

eta: William Devane played a fictional President in both SG:1 and 24. No one's done him yet, or either of the Presidents from the two "White House Takeover" films.

Great entries so far, all!

There was a political thriller (miniseries) called H2O, starring Paul Gross, in which a Prime Minister dies in a canoeing accident and his son enters politics and becomes PM. I remember watching it, and you couldn't possibly miss that it was meant to evoke comparisons between Pierre Trudeau and his son, Justin (not that Justin would ever have been anything remotely like the slimy character in the movie, but Pierre was a very avid canoer).
Cool, there's one!

Actually, IIRC, Wallace Shawn also played a fictional PM in Canadian Bacon, and I'm sure there are others, too. But it's still a fairly obscure category!

One of my all-time favourite fictional presidents as played by Alan Alda on Canadian Bacon.




Edit: Heh, nice coincidental mention of Canadian Bacon, Avro! I hadn't noticed that reply of yours until I posted this, I swear ...

If someone is still looking for a president, Billy Bob Thornton in Love Actually. Lloyd Bridges in Hot Shots Part Deux. Jimmy Smits, John Goodman or James Cromwell in The West Wing.
