I have always liked Bill Pullman. Very under rated actor, like Garret Dillahunt or Michael Biehn.
 
2012-02-25 06:17:10 AM
I'm okay with this.

Awesome. I thought he was great in Big Love.

Absolutely. I though Pullman's performance in Tombstone was underrated, as well.

Bob Dole is wondering when Bob Dole is going to get a show where Bob Dole shows what Bob Dole would do if Bob Dole was President.

/Bob Dole!

Are you subtlely suggesting Bill Pullman should be in Terminator 5?

Don't forget Twister, Terminator and True Lies.

He doesn't put on a flight suit does he? Cause the President puts on a flight suit thing has been severely cheapened since ID4.

His pants-pissing in True Lies was great...Pullman really sold that character, IMO.

I don't think so. Paxton was the guy from Spaceballs.

It was, before Obama used his Magical Time Machine and went back and recast every Paxton role as Pullman. You either haven't watched these movies in awhile or are stuck in some sort of chronometric bubble that prevents you from the changes of time travel.

All joking aside, Pullman was really good in Frailty. Very underrated flick.

Noted. In my Netflix queue. I'll watch anything with Pullman in it.

I wonder if they'll go with off the wall hijinks like in That's My Bush.

Those weren't off the wall hijinks, those were sitcom parodies, and I can give you 99.9% odds that NBC will NOT go in that direction.

It will probably be a mix of wonky political stuff and weird relationships, a la Boston Legal. If they make it melodramedy like Grey's Anatomy or douchey like Desperate Housewives, I will shoot myself.

I loved her in Shark Night 3D and the Last House on the Left when she says "Frankly my queer, I don't give a damn".

Mugato: He doesn't put on a flight suit does he? Cause the President puts on a flight suit thing has been severely cheapened since ID4.


The fact of the matter is that Bill Pullman is the man who people take cues from on how to be presidential. No matter what he does on film, the next struggling president will no doubt perform an inept version of it. It isn't the fault of great men like Bill Pullman that they inspire the crude emulation of incompetents like George Bush.

Too bad James Spader's already doing The Office. If they went the Boston Legal route - wonky, with a lot of dark humor - he'd be great as a wise-ass Chief of Staff or other top advisor to Pullman. That being said, I'll still check this show out. Can't be much worse than the rest of NBC's programming.

FTA -- The pilot, which is co-created and executive-produced by former Obama speechwriter Jon Lovett, "Book of Mormon" star Josh Gad and "Modern Family" writer Jason Winer, will revolve around a dysfunctional presidential family.

Gosh, looks like someone imagined what would happen if lightning hit the presidential shiathouse and Sarah Palin got elected.

I know where his family ranch is. I'd go herd his cattle, if you know what I mean.

He was awesome as a pedophile murderer in Torchwood, but even Pullman couldn't save the last season of Torchwood. RTD stop ruining the good ideas you have.

Lost Highway and Spaceballs have always been my favorite movies of his, though I have liked him in everything else I've seen him in.

My dad grew up with Bill Pullman. No lie. Hornell, NY. Dying little railroad town, nothing really to do when we visted Grandma yearly. Met his brother Joe.

If he actually ran for president, I'd vote for him over the rest of the chucklefarks he'd be competing against.

He would care too much about the world and not just the USA. Remember that speech he gave about the world working together to fight extermination? F that! It should only be about the USA! USA! USA!
 
2012-02-25 03:42:34 PM
He should play his role like Darryl Zero. Maybe get Ben Stiller to be his chief of staff.
 
2012-02-25 03:52:30 PM
John Lovett? That's the ticket!

Still better than 99% of real presidential speeches! (new window)

"Good morning. In less than an hour, aircraft from here will join others from around the world. And you will be launching the largest aerial battle in the history of mankind. "Mankind." That word should have new meaning for all of us today. We can't be consumed by our petty differences anymore. We will be united in our common interests. Perhaps it's fate that today is the Fourth of July, and you will once again be fighting for our freedom... Not from tyranny, oppression, or persecution... but from annihilation. We are fighting for our right to live. To exist. And should we win the day, the Fourth of July will no longer be known as an American holiday, but as the day the world declared in one voice: "We will not go quietly into the night!" We're going to live on! We're going to survive! Today we celebrate our Independence Day!"
