Party Lines Slideshow: Anthony Mackie, Mamie Gummer, Benjamin Walker, and More at the Opening Night of Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson

Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson made its Broadway transfer official with last week's opening-night performance at the Bernard B. Jacobs Theater, and Vulture was there to ask the tough questions. And, since Bloody Bloody portrays President Jackson in something of a revisionist light (tagline: "History just got all sexypants"), one of those questions was: Who is the sexiest historical figure?

You can’t beat that." For more celebrities talking about the past, click through our Party Lines slideshow.
