Barack Obama feels Will Smith has everything it takes to portray him in a film. Smith, reportedly, said that the former President feels that they have the same kind of ears that make him suitable for the role.
According to some reports, a couple of movies have already been made about Barack Obama, but if Smith acts in the third, it could be a big hit. The 52-year-old Hollywood A-lister was just 26 years when he had initially confessed his dream to become America’s President.
He has every right to have such a desire. After all, he has been incredibly successful in whatever he has dabbled in. He formed a rock band at the young age of 12 years and became a millionaire when he was a teenager.
He had become a sitcom star by the time he turned 23. And who can forget the big blockbusters that made him popular among millions of his fans, including Men In Black, Independence Day, and Bad Boys? Today, he is one of the world’s most popular movie stars, Variety reports.
However, the actor revealed on a TV show in 2016 that he might have missed the chance to become Americas’ first-ever Black President. He again said that he wants to run for the country’s presidential elections. It seems, though, that his wife is not quite keen on the idea, according to the actor.
The actor also mentioned that now that he cannot become the country’s first Black President, playing the role of Barack Obama could be the second-best thing. Will Smith even confessed to discussing this with Barack Obama, Showbiz Cheat Sheet reports.
Smith joked that he and Barack Obama spoke about it over a call. The former President then said that Smith has the perfect ears to portray him in films. To date, the films were made about Barack Obama in 2016 when his term was about to end. The films were called Southside With You and Barry.
Smith has been seen in a leading role in 21 films, out of which 17 films have been major worldwide hits. So, there are chances of another major hit if Smith portrays the former president's character in the future.
In other news, behind-the-scenes footage was posted by Sadhguru, a spiritual leader, on Instagram recently. The clip shows the leader’s meeting with the Hollywood A-lister.
Will Smith, as well as, his family had an opportunity to spend some time with the spiritual leader. Sadhguru met Smith, one of his celeb followers, on his motorcycle trip across America, Indian Express reports.
