"Will the real Bill Clinton please stand up?"
That's what you would say if former President Clinton and "Mr. President" Tim Watters sat in the same room together. Tim Watters is a comedian and actor whose appearance is so authentic that when former President Bill Clinton spoke on television, Tim''s then two-year-old son said "Daddy!"
Tim Watters pursues the role of Bill Clinton on a full time basis for television, film and special events. Four or five Secret Service agents, complete with earpieces and sunglasses, accompany him and occasionally he has a limousine decked out with American flags-with the stereo blasting "Hail to the Chief."
The likeness to Bill Clinton has garnered national recognition on such shows as Entertainment Tonight, CBS Morning News, CNN, Larry King Live and Dateline NBC. He has also been a celebrity guest on television shows from Japan to Germany, and he even learned to play the saxophone.
Tim Watters' greatest satisfaction came at a political rally where Bill Clinton was running late. Hillary Clinton was sent to greet the crowd; as she walked five feet in front of him, the first lady did a HARD double take. Later, one of the President's campaign workers came up and shook his hand, saying, "I just had to meet the CLINTON CLONE."
Tim Watters' future prospects involve greater national exposure. He has appeared on The Tonight Show; in the motion picture Naked Gun 33-1/3, and in the Warner Brothers motion picture, Contact, with Jodie Foster and Matt McConaughey. He was also in the movies, Austin Powers, and Life or Something Like It. One should expect to see more of Tim Watters in the future. In fact, the next time you see Bill Clinton on television, in the newspaper, or at your local McDonald's, you may want to take a closer look. It just might be Mr. President...Tim Watters!
