During his talk with Speedy Morman, Obama even touched on who would be best suited to play him in a future movie about his life, giving Drake his Presidential seal of approval.
“I will say this: Drake seems to be able to do anything he wants,” said Obama. “You know what, Drake has– more importantly, I think– my household’s stamp of approval. I suspect Malia and Sasha would be just fine with it.”

“I hope somebody makes a movie about Obama’s life soon because I could play him,” he said at the time. “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. I’ve been reading scripts for a while. I want to do something great. I want to do something for my culture: the younger people who are still in tune with everything going on. I’m actually writing with my friends right now.”
