‘The Sum of All Fears’ (2002)
From real life former commander in chief George H. W. Bush in “W.” to Martin Sheen’s fictional presidential predecessor on “The West Wing,” actor James Cromwell has played his fair share of presidents over the years.
The 73-year-old one-time Oscar nominee’s most memorable performance as commander in chief came in the 2002 action thriller “The Sum of All Fears,” where his character, President Robert Fowler, had to deal with the threat of an all-out nuclear war with Russia. The film also featured Academy Award winners Ben Affleck and Morgan Freeman.
