Many directors have immortalized and dramatized the lives of our U.S. presidents on film throughout the years—even Oliver Stone made ‘W.,’ a movie about George W. Bush while Bush was still in office. But typically these films revolve around the actual work of being a president, or the scandals and tragedies that have befallen our leaders. A new movie based on President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle will take a very different approach, telling the romantic story of their very first date.

Typically, when the 'Tonight Show' trots out one of their meticulously matched up music compilations, it's newsman Brian Williams who is tasked with "singing" whatever Jimmy Fallon and his band of evil geniuses have determined is most fitting.

The moment Alaska governor Sarah Palin first came to the world stage as John McCain's running mate in the 2008 presidential elections, we knew that her larger-than-life personality would become the stuff of parody and portrayal from years to come. Once we finished laughing at Tina Fey's dead-on impression, the tone turned serious as HBO's 'Game Change' garnered multiple Emmys with Julianne Moore in the lead role.
Now, the original 'Game Change' writers have begun work on a sequel covering the 2012 elections between Mitt Romney and Barack Obama, titled 'Double Down: Game Change 2012,' and guess what HBO wants to do with it?
