(1964), the character played here by Forest Whitaker
was named Martin "Jiggs" Casey. The nickname, which in the context of an African-American actor was a racial epithet, was clearly inappropriate and was not used. See more
The entire premise of the Presidential takeover in the film implies that the moment the Cabinet members and the Vice President declare the president unfit for duty, he will be removed from office. However, Section 4 of the 25th Amendment outlines a detailed procedure for the manner in which a President may appeal a declaration that he is incompetent. The procedures specifies that the Vice President and the Cabinet may then re-state their case, in which afterwards the matter is forwarded to Congress. The stipulations of the 25th Amendment are in place to prevent exactly the type of scenario which is shown in the film. See more
