'Bubba Ho-Tep' | 2002

Although Ossie Davis' performance as a convalescent home patient who believes he is JFK dyed to look like an African American might not be a strict portrayal of President Kennedy, the humorous ambiguity of his character earned "Bubba Ho-Tep" a place in film history. The movie opened to tepid reviews but has since become a cult darling. Fun fact: Davis' co-star Bruce Campbell, who plays a man who believes he is Elvis Presley, portrayed Kennedy in the 2001 documentary "Roots of the Cuban Missile Crisis."
