WHAT IF YOU COULD WATCH THE NEXT GREAT AMERICAN PRESIDENT GROW UP? - Jack (Matt Long) and Bobby (Logan Lerman) McCallister are two bright young brothers growing up in Hart, Missouri, under the watchful eye of their eccentric single mother Grace (Christine Lahti), a college professor whose strong personality helps shape both of these young men's lives and secure one a place in the history books - as President of the United States. Grace and Jack's temperamental mother/son relationship takes a dangerous toll on Bobby as he gets caught in their rival forces, prompting a major change in the McCallister household. The arrival of a new college president, Peter Benedict (John Slattery), and his beautiful daughter, Courtney (Jessica Par�), makes an impression on the McCallisters that lasts a lifetime. Edwin Hodge also stars as Jack's best friend Marcus Ride. David Nutter directed the episode with teleplay by creator/co-executive producer Vanessa Taylor and story by creator/executive producer Greg Berlanti & Vanessa Taylor based on a concept by Scoop Cohen & Brad Meltzer (2T5400).
