Will Smith believes he will be picked to play Obama in film

Will Smith continued his publicity tour for Men in Black 3 over in the UK and said any BBC interview that he would be the "natural choice" to portray President Obama onscreen.

He added "People see the ears and Barack and I both have the ears, so I’m the most natural choice.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,"

Now this may be just me but I don’t see Will Smith pulling off the road. I guess my choice would be the man who I am convinced sounds a lot like Barack Obama and that would be Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. The very next time you hear him talking close your eyes and listen closely because in my opinion he sounds very much like the president. Plus we all know how Will Smith’s last attempt at a biopic turned out at the box office. There is no release date set for the biopic all we know is it’s currently being written.

As for the 43-year-old Smith his next film Men in Black 3 which also stars Tommy Lee Jones and Josh Brolin hits theaters in the US on May 25th.
