20 Actors Who Would Make Really Great Presidents

John Boyega

Who says that all presidents need to in their mid-to-later years? Evidence shows that if only 18-to-25 year olds voted, we would have a much different looking electoral map — so maybe we should bypass the ‘wisdom’ of the older generation and look for a young leader.

John Boyega, who got his big break starring in the new Star Wars movie, is no stranger to adversity. His powerful response to the racist backlash that followed his casting announcement is recommendation enough.

Daniel Day-Lewis

Daniel Day-Lewis’ turn as John Proctor in The Crucible shows how this man would handle the intense struggles of the Presidency. Plus, his portrayal of Abraham Lincoln in the 2012 film Lincoln shows just how easy it would be to see him as the Commander in Chief.

Meryl Streep

The lady who many have called ‘the best actress of her generation’ would be a truly classy President. Her intelligence and capability are evidenced in her many movie roles, but nothing is a clearer statement on her intelligence than this quote:

“Women are better at acting than men. Why? Because we have to be. If successfully convincing somebody bigger than you of something he doesn’t know is a survival skill, this is how women have survived through the millennia.”
