In case you missed it this morning, Daniel and Ylenia brought to our attention that Barack Obama has officially given Drake the go-ahead to play him if a movie is ever made about his life and presidency.
Drake playing Obama in a biopic?

During an interview in an episode of Complex’s 360 With Speedy Mormon, Obama was reminded that 10 years ago Drake mentioned that he would be the perfect candidate if they ever had to make a movie about the ex-president. Drake mentioned in an interview 10 years back.
“I watch all the addresses. Any time I see him on TV, I don’t change the channel, I definitely pay attention and listen to the inflections of his voice. If you ask anyone who knows me, I’m pretty good at impressions.”
Seems like Drake is quite the Obama fan-boy, so I don’t see why she shouldn’t get the opportunity to immortalise the fondly remembered president through film. Plus, Drizzy Drake has a pretty decent acting past behind him, so I’m sure he can pull it off.
After all, everybody likes Obama, everybody likes Drake, so that’s basically a perfect match!
