God, the Devil and the US President.

Postby Tonyblack » Sun Oct 10, 2010 6:14 pm

The three roles of God, the Devil and the US President have been played in loads of movies by various different actors (and actresses). Who are your favourites?

God = Morgan Freeman (Bruce Almighty)
The Devil = Robert de Niro (Angel Heart)
US President = Morgan Freeman (Deep Impact) I like Morgan Freeman - ok! :P

God = James Mason (Eddie Izzards impression of him anyway)
The Devil = Gabriel Bryne (End of Days) or Dave Grohl (Tenacious D's Pick of Destiny)
US President = Ronald Reagan :lol:

I agree with Morgan Freeman as God.
The Devil: Tom Waits as Mr. Nick in The Imaginariom of Doctor Parnassus or Jack Nicholson in Witches of Eastwick :wink:
The US President: Billy Bob Thornton in Love Actually

(I'd like to add "Death" to the list, which, in my case, would be Brad Pitt as Joe Black in Meet Joe Black)

I should have written that as 'De Niro'; now edited to make it look like Tony is the one who can't spell. :wink: (sorry Tony :P )

God = James Mason (Heaven can wait)(I think he was God, but he might n only have been an angel :? )
The Devil = Robert de Niro (Angel Heart)
US President = Kevin Kline (Dave)

PS; I love Tom Waits but haven't seen The Imaginariom of Doctor Parnassus :(

OK, the worst ones:
God = Alanis Morrissette (Dogma)
The Devil = Liz Hurley (Bedazzled)
US President = Robin Williams (Night at the Museum)

Yuck!
