Will Smith is 'natural choice' to play Obama

May 22nd, 2012

Will Smith says he's the ''natural choice'' to play President Barack Obama on the big screen.

The 'Men In Black 3' actor thinks he would be the perfect person to portray the US president if there was ever a biopic about him as they have similar ears,

He told the BBC: ''It's about the ears, that's the thing. People see the ears and Barack and I both have the ears, so I'm the most natural choice.

''I told [Obama] jokingly, 'It's definitely something I would consider, you just have to write the ending.' So he's working on the ending right now.''

Will has previously said the idea of a movie about Obama seemed ridiculous because it was such an unbelievable story.

He said: ''Imagine if President Obama hadn't won, and somebody pitched a screenplay where a black man named Barack Obama runs for president and wins.

''It's the worst screenplay you've ever read, it's awful! Who'd waste their time writing that fake story? It'll never happen! Life is far stranger than fiction can ever be.''
