Will Smith Is Hollywoods Barack Obama

We have seen Will Smith play "Muhammad Ali", Capt. Steven Hiller in Independence Day, and even Agent J in Men In Black, but we haven't seen him portray the first black president of the United States of America.

Is Will ready for such a daunting role? In three words, "Yes He Is"!

Giving insight into the resemblance he and Senator Obama share, Smith says, "It's right here," holding up his legendarily prominent ears, which are not unlike Obama's lobes. "That's the key. That's the key. America loves ears, you know? Mickey Mouse started it; Goofy and Dumbo followed behind. And America just loves the ears."

Will says that he would be honored to play the role in the biopic of Barack Obama; But not until the third portion of this story is written, and that won't happen until.... uhhh sometime in November.

Back in November, during his MTV/MySpace Presidential Dialogue, Obama was asked who he would like to see play him in a biopic. After asking forum co-host and MTV VJ Sway if he'd be interested in the gig — who turned him down when Obama said he'd have to get a haircut — the senator said Smith would be the right choice, if only because "his ears match mine."
