You could add a lot more just from SNL alone. Chevy Chase as Ford, Dan Akroyd as Nixon, Will Farrel as W., Dana Carvey as Bush Sr, Phil Hartman or Darrell Hammond as Clinton... all iconic roles and all more memorable than whats-his-face's portrayal of Obama. Also, Jay Pharaoh has also played Obama on SNL.

Let's forget Chevy Chase as Gerald Ford. It wasn't ever funny, it was just very poor, outdated, exaggerated slapstick.

Can't you also accept Jay Pharoah for Barack Obama on Saturday Night Live? Jay Pharoah currently impersonates Barack Obama on the show.

Can you also do Dwayne Johnson as "The Rock" Obama? I know he was never the main Obama actor, but he was the only one I could remember, and I feel like he was on SNL enough to merit inclusion.

And going back a few decades: Raymond Massey as Lincoln in Abe Lincoln in Illinois, Henry Ford as Young Mr. Lincoln and Walter Huston as Lincoln in Abraham Lincoln by D.W. Griffith. Plus Ralph Bellamy as FDR in Sunrise at Campobello and Nick Nolte as Jefferson in Jefferson in Paris. As for fictional Presidents, you could add Kevin Kline as Bill Mitchell in Dave.

It was claimed by old timers who remembered that Raymond Massey actually sounded like Lincoln.

Although to be fair, Daniel Day-Lewis as Lincoln was one of the all-time great biographical portrayals.

Coincidentally, he also showed up as a hood who tries to intimidate a young Gandhi, played by the uncanny Ben Kingsley way back in 1982.

Couldn't come up with Haysbert but typed in Allstate Guy just to see...

That's a fun quiz indeed. I liked the separation of real vs. fictional. I'd like to see the movie "Dave" included.
