Will Smith Wants To Play Obama In Future Movie (VIDEO)

MTV has an interview with "Hancock" star Will Smith where he discusses his desire to portray Barack Obama in a future biopic, claiming his ears make him perfect for the roll. Just last month Michelle Obama said her celebrity crush was Will Smith.


"It's right here," Smith said, holding up his legendarily prominent ears, which are not unlike Obama's lobes. "That's the key. That's the key. America loves ears, you know? Mickey Mouse started it; Goofy and Dumbo followed behind. And America just loves the ears."

Other than the ear comment, Smith assures us that he wants to take on the role, "As soon as he (Obama) writes the end of the story."

Smith notes that he has no political aspirations.
