Josh Brolin

Brolin, perhaps best known for his role in No Country for Old Men, makes a splash as Dubya in Stone’s biopic, which traces George Bush’s rise to power, from alcoholism to becoming a born-again Christian.

Kamal Haasan

In the Indian film Dasavathaaram, about a biological weapon of mass destruction which is in danger of falling into the wrong hands, Tamil actor Haasan dons a dodgy-looking mask to play Bush.

At a White House dinner, comedian and impersonator Steve Bridges and the real George Bush appear side by side. Well, if a career in politics doesn’t work out, Bush can always go into stand-up...

Will Ferrell

Will Ferrell’s "special address" as George W Bush. Here the President takes time out from relaxing on his ranch to tell us what he thinks about those new-fangled "global warmings”.

Frank Caliendo

American stand-up comedian Frank Caliendo puts on his George Bush hat and talks to David Letterman... Just don’t ask him to “rememberise” what the word “legacy” means.
