I figure Obama should play Obama. Who else is qualified to play such an unqualified president? Besides, he’ll have plenty of free time starting January 20, 2013.
Will Smith is convinced he is the “natural choice” to portray President Obama onscreen.
“It’s about the ears, that’s the thing,” Smith said in a BBC interview Monday, when asked about rumors he could play the Commander-in-Chief someday in a biopic.
“People see the ears and Barack and I both have the ears, so I’m the most natural choice,” Smith continued.
“I told [Obama] jokingly, ‘It’s definitely something I would consider, you just have to write the ending.’ So he’s working on the ending right now,” the Oscar-nominee added.
