Drake Wants To Play Barack Obama

By: / July 21, 2010

Could Drake’s next big role be playing the most powerful man in the world?

The “Best I Ever Had” rapper recently expressed a desire to play President Barack Obama to Paper magazine (via Starpulse):

I hope somebody makes a movie about Obama’s life soon because I could play him. That’s the goal Anytime I see him on TV, I don’t change the channel, I definitely pay attention and listen to the inflections of his voice.

The Canadian star has the acting chops to portray Obama: He rose to fame playing wheelchair-bound jock Jimmy in the Canadian teen drama Degrassi:The Next Generation. However, Drake may have to shed a few pounds before he starts going after Obama roles — not because the rapper is overweight by any means, but because of Obama’s extra-slim figure.

What do you think: Would make a good Obama? Comment it up!
