Denzel Washington to Play Obama in Biopic

President Obama has expressed his wish that if a movie were ever made about him, he would want the starring role to be given to Will Smith.


Part of the reason for the Smith preference has to do with the size and shape of both men's hearing appendages.


Casting, though, is an unpredictable activity particularly when the movie role is that of a current president.


According the U.K. Daily Mail, Smith isn't going to get the Obama part, but instead it's going to go to Denzel Washington.


The Oscar winner reportedly wanted the role and Obama has apparently given his approval.


"It was at the President's suggestion," Denzel said.


The actor did additionally mention one potential issue that may have to be addressed by the make up artist.


"The only problem is he has bigger ears than me," Denzel divulged.
