In an interview with James Cordon during 'Carpool Karaoke', Will Smith toyed with the idea of playing Barack Obama in a movie and said he even discussed it with the former president himself.
In the 5 minute teaser which has been viewed just over 7 million times, Cordon asked the actor and notorious rapper, If he had ever been approached to play ex-president Obama in a movie.
Smith happily replied:
“Yes... I talked to Barack about it... he told me he felt confident that I had the ears for the role.”
The pair even came up with some script ideas for this supposed biopic by including one of Will Smith’s favourite catchphrases, “Aw Hell No” which he famously said in the film, I Robot.
They even acted out scenarios where the phrase could potentially be used and to our demise we find out Will Smith is a pineapple and pizza kind of guy and we don’t really know how to feel about that.
