People have long made predictions about future presidents, usually plucking their ideas from the current sphere of politicians and activists; however, one cannot deny that many celebrities venture from entertainment into the political game: Ronald Reagan, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jesse Venture and Al Franken. There are certain people who presently boast the title of celebrity — whether musician, actor, reality star, athlete, activist or innovator — who simply seem to have political prowess in their DNA. Consider 10 young celebrities who could become president one day and, keep in mind, to qualify in the United States, they only need be 35.
10. Chandler Riggs
CARL! CAHRAWL! CORAHL! Whatever it is Andrew Lincoln screams at Chandler Riggs while portraying the Grimes family in AMC’s The Walking Dead, Chandler Riggs (Carl Grimes) has the makings of a future United States’ president. He has already led a group of zombie survivors through the south and, if you’ve ever been to the south during the summer, you know that is practically an impossible task. Who better to help the U.S. navigate its budgetary woes than Chandler? Chandler seems like he may get bored with the life of an actor and aspire to greater competition and aspirations, like American politics. Born in Georgia, Chandler would likely possess a perfect mix of Southern charm, combined with an understanding of the Hollywood elite. That’s a deadly combination in an presidential election…just ask Bill Clinton.Photo by Broadimage/REX
