Quoted: Drake wants to star in President Obama biopic (photo comparison)


No wonder you never see them in photos together: Drake, left (Anthony Mandler); Barack Obama (Melina Mara/The Washington Post)



"I just pay attention so when the day comes I'm not scrambling to learn how to speak like him."


-- Drake, the actor-turned-rapper, telling Paper Magazine that he's studying all of the president's TV appearances in preparation for the day when someone might ask him to play Barack Obama in a movie.



(In hindsight, we realize Drizzy's been lobbying for this role for a while....)

So many get Obama's voice wrong.

They should study Walter Cronkite.
