Drake wants to play Barack Obamain a film about the President’s life. “I hope somebody makes a movie about Obama’s life soon because I could play him,”the rapper and actor told VH1 News at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this week. “That’s the goal. 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.”

Drake, who broke into show business as an actor on the long-running Canadian teen drama Degrassi: The Next Generation, said that he is mostly being offered roles as basketball players and rappers these days but aims to do something bigger.

Do you think Drake can pull it off?
