Care to guess which major movie star has played the president of the United States in a movie not once, but twice?

Well, that would be Anthony Hopkins:  Richard Nixon in "Nixon" and John Quincy Adams in "Amistad."
 
For just over an hour, In this presentation enhanced with PowerPoint images and film clips, we'll take a close look at gifted actors portraying actual U.S. presidents and a couple of fictional ones as well.
 
The fictional ones include Harrison Ford in "Air Force One" and Kevin Kline in "Dave," one of my favorites of the genre.

Open Mic Night.  Call it the longest three minutes in show business; an eternity for some, a breeze for the gifted few.  All the great ones started this way somewhere.  One-liners and stories running through their minds over and over or scribbled on notepads as they nervously await their turn.
