|“||I have had a vision that I am going to be President of the United States someday. And nobody, and I mean nobody is going to stop me!||„|
|~ Greg Stillson|
Gregory Ammas "Greg" Stillson is the main antagonist of Stephen King's novel The Dead Zone and its 1983 film adaptation as well as its TV series.
In the film, he was portrayed by Martin Sheen, who also portrayed Jason Wynn in Spawn and Captain Hollister in Firestarter, alongside voicing Sly Sludge on Captain Planet & the Planeteers. In the TV series, he was portrayed by Sean Patrick Flanery.
Greg Stillson is an amoral and duplicitous politician who wants to be elected President of the United States. In the film, he blackmails a newspaper editor to change the depiction of Stillson in an article. During a rally in the town of Trimbull, he shake hands with the psychic Johnny Smith, who has a vision of Stillson becoming President and starting a nuclear war.
A few days later, Johnny decides to assassinate Stillson and tries to shoot him during another rally. Unfortunately, he misses several times and Stillson grabs a child in order to use him as a human shield. Johnny is then shot and mortally wounded, but foresees Stillson's reputation and political ambitions being ruined after the photograph of his cowardly act is published. In the film, Smith also foresees that Stillson will commit suicide after failing to be elected, presumably because Stillson's reputation and ambitions were all that drove him in life.
