I was wondering how long it would take someone to get around to doing all of the actors who played Der Fuhrer.

 

Speaking of FDR, here's John Lithgow as President Franklin D. Roosevelt in "When Lions Roared"

Michael Sheard (again) as AH in "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade". He actually played Hitler in five different productions!

While I'm at it, I might as well do Michael Cain as Joseph Stalin in "When Lions Roared"

 

By the way, Bob Hoskins, who was shown earlier as one of the Churchill's, portrayed Winston Churchill in "When Lions Roared".

Even though Sabrejet has already posted Simon Ward and Ian McNeice (something about he who hesitates comes to mind), here are a couple more Winston's for comparison.
