Ashley Judd Bypasses Senator for First Lady in This Olympus Has Fallen Clip

Have you begun to imagine a future where Ashley Judd may be among the most high-profile political figures in the country? The 44-year-old actress has made headlines recently for her supposed interest in a Senate seat, but in the new film Olympus Has Fallen, she's got a gig that's potentially even more powerful: First Lady. The role does have its downsides — terrorists are about to attack the White House, and only Secret Service agent Gerard Butler can stop them — but in this exclusive clip, you can see how much power suits Judd (whose sister, Wynonna, debuts on Dancing With the Stars tonight). Enjoy the sneak peek, Mitch McConnell!
