Jesse Helms would be a bit exceptional as a Danish-American, not by being conservative, but by being from North Carolina. Most Danish-Americans can be found in the northern Mid-West and, of cause, California.1
And you could cast a movie with Scarlett Johansson – yes, Johansson is a Swedish name but the lady should be counted as Danish-American as her grandfather was a well-known Danish TV presenter; his ancestors probably emigrated from Sweden to Denmark in the late 1800s or early 1990s – William Petersen, Viggo Mortensen, Virginia Madsen and Michael Madsen and have an all-Danish-American lead cast.
Update: Forgot about Jessica Alba. Quite a cast, really.
