In a recent interview with ex-crippled Degrassi student Drake, the rapper confessed that he would gladly take on the role of playing Barack Obama in a movie. He went on to say how much he admires our president:
"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." Which is fine — we want America's influential artists to be listening in on how our nation's leader pronounces words, rather than the message he is delivering.
Drake said he often gets sent scripts that have him cast as a rapper or a basketball player. If I'm not mistaken, the next logical role after basketball player is President of the United States, right?
Also, what's the timeframe in this movie? Is Drake going to play a young, fun-loving, rambunctious Barack or the fifty-year-old embattled President? Are we calling in some expert make-up artists, or do I have to wait a quarter of a century for this film to hit theaters?
I mean, I'm not going to sit on my high horse and say that the two don't share somewhat of a resemblance. But just because I look like a bird doesn't mean I should waste my time living among the flamingos and eating shrimp… or should I?
