With the announcement of the upcoming W film by Oliver Stone, I thought it would be interesting to revisit other movie and TV portrayals of George W. Bush…
10. Harold & Kumar Escape From Guantanamo Bay
James Adomian plays W., in a scene where he smokes pot with Harold & Kumar.
9. Master Of Disguise
One of the many zany characters Dana Carvey plays in the film is George — he played W.’s dad in Saturday Night Live as well.
8. Robot Chicken
In one episode, W. is dreaming that he has Jedi powers — even dueling with Abraham Lincoln with a lightsaber. In another, he comes into possession of a mogwai, with disastrous results.
7. King Of The Hill
In a 2000 episode called “The Perils Of Polling,” Hank Hill shakes the hand of then Texas gov George W. Bush — and complains that the shake wasn’t firm enough. Apparently Bush on the show was drawn nothing like he looks in real life.
6. Scary Movie IV
Not a direct appearance of W. — but Leslie Nielsen as the POTUS does an obvious homage to the prez in a scene where he reads a book to a bunch of school children.
5. That’s My Bush
This short-lived Comedy Central original TV series by the creators of South Park. Timothy Bottoms starred as the wacky president.
4. MAD TV
George W. Bush was played by Frank Caliendo for several seasons on the show. Will Sasso and Christian Duguay also played the president on the show.
3. Lil’ Bush
Another Comedy Central original TV show, this animated series stars George W. as the pint-sized son of “current” president George H. W. Bush.
2. South Park
George W. makes several appearances in the long-running animated series. He gets a makeover on Queer Eye For The Straight Guy, gets involved in “Cartoon Wars,” and then is revealed to be the mastermind behind all conspiraracy theories in “The Mystery Of The Urinal Deuce.”
1. Saturday Night Live
Will Farrell played W.from 1999 to 2002, followed by Chris Parnell and Darrell Hammond in 2003. Will Forte had the role in 2004, and Jason Sudeikis in 2006.
