Former Bible salesman, womanizer, and fundamentally dishonest - yet irresistible - Greg Stillson (Sean Patrick Flanery) is Maine's newly elected U.S. Congressman. Johnny's visions have told him that Stillson, Purdy, and himself are somehow linked to the future destruction of the world. Johnny sees Stillson as a dangerous and corrupt politician who aspires to the most powerful job in the land and won't let anybody get in his way. After becoming Vice President, Stillson is even closer to his goal.
