Will Smith: Obviously I Should Play Obama in the Biopic

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.

It won’t be a happy ending for Obama.
Update: This should have been obvious:

    ““It’s about the ears, that’s the thing,””

    He’s right about that – Obama has listened to all the wrong people his entire life.

    Will Smith is a bad choice to play President Obama because Smith is naturally funny and there is nothing funny about The One.

    I don’t know. Some of Smith’s best known characters are noted for not being as clever as they think they are, having sizable egos, always getting in over their heads and always making things worse. The only difference is that Smith’s characters wind up rising to the occasion and are likable. Obama’s just a doofus.
