AS PLAYED BY:
John Wesley Dean III (born October 14, 1938) was White House Counsel to United States President Richard Nixon from July 1970 until April 1973. As White House Counsel, he became deeply involved in events leading up to the Watergate burglaries and the subsequent Watergate scandal cover up, even referred to as "master manipulator of the cover up" by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). He was convicted of multiple felonies as a result of Watergate, and went on to become a key witness for the prosecution, resulting in a reduction of his time in prison.
Dean is currently an author, columnist, and commentator on contemporary politics, strongly critical of conservatism and the Republican Party, and a registered Independent who supported impeachment of President George W. Bush.
Although I found plenty of screen captures of Martin Sheen as John Dean in "Blind Ambition", I chose not to save Dean for Two For Tuesday. Sheen is just too closely identified with JFK, RFK, and Jed Bartlet, and there was no attempt made to make him look more like Dean.
