Will Smith Could Play Barack Obama In Biopic
The Fresh Prince mentioned in that same interview that he’s talked to Barack Obama about playing the former President in a biopic. Obama seemed to give Will the thumbs-up, but Barack has also revealed he’d be OK with rap superstar Drake playing the role.
“Drake seems to be able to do anything he wants. I mean, he’s a talented brother. If the time comes and he’s ready, you know … Drake has — more importantly — my household’s stamp of approval. I suspect Malia and Sasha would be just fine with it.”
