Bill Pullman Is Getting Re-Elected Into The Fictional Oval Office!

| Filed under: TV News

OMG! Such good news!

Bill Pullman is going to be president again!

There is arguably NO better fictional movie president than Pullman's interpretation of Commander and Chief in the 1997 blockbuster Independence Day and NBC remembers that.

The actor has been cast as President Dale Gilchrist in the NBC comedy pilot 1600 Penn, which was co-created by actor Josh Gad and stars Brittany Snow as the First Daughter.

In the upcoming show, Pullman once again plays a president whose wife is murdered by invading aliens, which forces him to hop in a fighter jet and blow those ugly E.T.'s right back to where they came from.

Okay, you called our bluff. That was just wishful thinking!

Although we sOoOo wish that were true, he'll just be playing a father who is not only the head of a dysfunctional family, but the entire country as well.

Those are all the details we have about the show for now, but in the meantime, enjoy one of the greatest moments in movie history (above)!

    Sooo, basically the same thing as Geena Davis' "Commander & Chief" from a few years ago?

    That speech is my favorite "movie president speech" Oh, and I would absolutely watch him in this new endeavor.

    I like Bill Pullman and I liked Independence Day even though it was a bit smaltzy, but I also like Forrest Gump. Call me a sucker for that kind of movie. I remember I could barely sit still in my seat, those aliens made me so nervous. The ending was great! Big sappy epic movie! I also liked him in "While You Were Sleeping," so I will definitely give this a try.

    Independence Day was a really good movie, was flying back from Costa Rica with my late husband and the plane sat at Dallas airport for 20 minutes so we could watch the last of the movie before going to the gate. Also loved the movies with Mel Gibson and Danny Glover 0 is it the Lethal Weapon series? Hysterical.

    He's great in Independence Day as US President. He's perfect for the role. The speech was also brilliant. =) It gives me goosebumps every time. Such a powerful and moving speech!!!
