19 Percent Of Bosses Are Like Michael Douglas

CHICAGO (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Michael Douglas seems to boss a lot of Americans around. Or does it just seem that way?

According to a survey by careerbuilder.com, 13 percent of Americans say their boss most resembles Andrew Shepard, the kindly president that Douglas portrayed in the movie, The American President.

However, six percent say their real-life boss is more like Gordon “Greed Is Good” Gekko from Wall Street.

But not every boss resembles Michael Douglas. Ten percent of employees think their boss reminds them of Obi-Wan Kenobi from Star Wars.

  • Eight percent say the boss man is more like Bill Lumbergh, the passive aggressive exec portrayed by Gary Cole in Office Space.

  • Seven percent think their boss is just like Bernie Lomax from Weekend At Bernie’s.

  • Finally, six percent say the boss man is a dead ringer for Austin Powers’ nemesis, Dr. Evil.
