Happy Heavenly Birthday Mr. President. https://youtu.be/EqolSvoWNck Since his assassination in 1963, many actors have played former President John F. Kennedy on both the big and small screens. And while Bruce Greenwood (Thirteen Days), Stephen Collins (A Woman Named Jackie), Steven Weber (The Kennedys of Massachusetts) and Tim Matheson (Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy Onassis) each put forth a solid effort, DoYouRemember has compiled a list of 7 Actors Who Shined as JFK: 1. Cliff Robertson: PT 109 (1963) After beating out Warren Beatty for the coveted role, Cliff Robertson’s portrayal of a young John F. Kennedy, which detailed his years in the navy during World War II, was so spot-on that Kennedy, who at the time was President, gave him rave reviews. 2. William Devane: The Missiles of October (1974) William Devane tackled the role of JFK in this ABC program, which was based on Robert Kennedy’s book, Thirteen Days: A Memoir of the Cuban Missile Crisis. He earned an Emmy for his performance. Click "Next" to see more... 3. Martin Sheen: Kennedy (1983) Martin Sheen was very believable as JFK in this gripping five-hour miniseries, which took viewers inside the Kennedy White House. It covered his entire term and is probably most remembered as the first film to re-create his assassinations. 4. Patrick Dempsey: J.F.K.: Reckless Youth (1993) Based on a biography by Nigel Hamilton, this story detailed the life of a young JFK. Starring Patrick Dempsey in the lead role, it gave audiences a chance to follow Kennedy from his youth to his Congressional nomination in the late 1940s. Click "Next" to see more movies 5. Greg Kinnear: The Kennedys (2011) Critics blasted this miniseries for what they perceived to be inaccuracies with the story. The History Channel clearly got the message and canned it, but luckily for Greg Kinnear, who earned an Emmy nom for his portrayal of JFK, Reelz network decided to air it. 6. James Marsden: The Butler (2013) James Marsden has played everything from a killer coed to a homophobic homosexual to an ecstasy-trippin’ boyfriend, but he showed his true acting potential when he portrayed JFK in the recently released box-office hit The Butler.

Rob Lowe: Killing Kennedy (2013) https://www.youtube.com/watch?vGTT8S7LS0rY Like many politicians, Rob Lowe has survived his own embarrassing sex scandal, which may be why he was so believable portraying JFK in this National Geographic movie, which was based on a book by Fox News Channel’s Bill O’Reilly. (NOTE: Bill O'Reilly is no longer with FOX News!) But the Best John F. Kennedy is "NEXT" But the best portrayal of JFK was JFK himself. On what marks the 100th birthday of John F. Kennedy, the nation’s 35th president, whose tenure was cut short by his assassination in 1963. His three years in office saw Cold War crises, the expansion of space exploration, the beginning of the Peace Corps and an emphasis on public service.
