VOTE! TV & Media Avatar Contest: Fictional US Presidents

It's not even November, but it's time to vote for the president of the United States... the fictional variety, that is!

We're going to make things simple and do away with the Electoral College; popular vote will decide this contest. However, just like the real presidential elections, you are allowed to vote for FOUR candidates!* (Please don't vote for your own entry, though.)

Polls will be open for four days, with the winner announced Saturday night.

And now, the entries:

urbandefault

- William Mitchell / Dave Kovic, Dave

Timewalker

- Andrew Shepherd, The American President

Timelord Victorious

- (Name Unknown), Heroes

Showdown

- Arnold Schwarzenegger, The Simpsons Movie

scotpens

- Merkin Muffley, Dr. Strangelove

Roddenberry

- Dwayne Elizondo Mountain Dew Herbert Camacho, Idiocracy

Owain Taggert

- (Name Unknown), Canadian Bacon

od0_ital

- Rathcock, Machete Kills

Nerys Myk

- Prez Rickard, Prez: First Teen President

Kai "the spy"

- Josiah Bartlet, The West Wing

JiNX-01

- J. Robert Fowler, The Sum of All Fears

intrinsical

- Thomas J. Whitmore, Independence Day

Gov Kodos

- Baxter Harris, Scary Movie 3

bbjeg

- Matthew Ellis, Iron Man 3

Avro Arrow


- David Palmer, 24

auntiehill

- Tom Beck, Deep Impact

Aragorn

- James Marshall, Air Force One

Ar-Pharazon

Good luck to all!

Re: VOTE! TV & Media Avatar Contest: Fictional US Presidents

I used my right to vote.


Gotta play smartass, here. Dave Kovic was not a president in his movie, he merely pretended to be president Bill Mitchell (and yes, I went to the trouble to look the name up).

That's all.

Well, presumably you didn't have to go to *too* much trouble to look it up, since both names appear under the entry!

But seriously, yeah, that's on me. Sorry. I've never actually seen Dave, so I didn't know if the image was a picture of Mitchell, or of Kovic playing Mitchell, so I thought the safest route to go was include both names. Otherwise I figured someone would come back and say that wasn't "really" Mitchell in the picture!

Re: VOTE! TV & Media Avatar Contest: Fictional US Presidents

I just dug out an old Independence Day cd and watched it. I had forgotten Brent Spiner (Data) was in it. What I was surprised to see were Mary McDonnell (BSG's Laura Roslin) and Adam Baldwin (Firefly's Jayne/Chuck's Casey)! I didn't even remember them in the movie.

They were?! Could've sworn it was just Dave Kovic's name, earlier. Well, seems like I went to the unnecessary trouble to look it up on wikipedia.

But seriously, yeah, that's on me. Sorry. I've never actually seen Dave, so I didn't know if the image was a picture of Mitchell, or of Kovic playing Mitchell, so I thought the safest route to go was include both names.

No biggie. I've seen it, and I'm still not sure whether it's Dave or Mitchell. But chances are it's Dave, he had way more screentime.

Not that any of this is rellevant.

Re: VOTE! TV & Media Avatar Contest: Fictional US Presidents

We have a winner! Congratulations to Aragorn, who captured first place with his entry of President James Marshall from Air Force One, played by the estimable Harrison Ford. Aragorn, the next contest is all yours!

Thank you to all who participated and voted!
