Richard Dreyfuss Gets The Presidential Jitters

30 March 2000 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Richard Dreyfuss has confirmed he's one celebrity who definitely won't be running for President - after taking on the role for the screen. The Mr. Holland's Opus (1995) star is to become the next screen American President in the upcoming live television film Fail Safe (2000) (TV) in which he stars alongside Harvey Keitel, George Clooney and Noah Wyle. But unlike former President Ronald Reagan and actor Warren Beatty, Dreyfuss says the experience has taught him never to let his political aspirations stray from the screen. He says, "I play the President of the United States in a nuclear crisis. The film takes place in the mid 1950s-1960s." "I'm modelling my role on my own fantasy of being President. But it's a pretty scary position to be in. The world does seem to scrunch right down to one terrible moment of awesome responsibility. No way would I like to have to do it." »
