Will Smith Gets Obama’s Blessings To Portray in Film

Barack Obama has given Will Smith his blessings to play him in a film. Let that sink in.

Smith spoke of this opportunity as a guest on James Corden’s Carpool Karaoke. After the two saung Smith’s “Boom! Shake The Room,” Corden asked him if he’d ever been asked to play Barack in a movie. Smith replied, “I talked to Barack about it. He told me that he felt confident that I had the ears for the role.” and they both laughed.

Though there’s no official script written for an Obama film, Smith does have a new film premiering on Netflix, Bright. The film features an alternate Earth where humans and fairytale creatures coexist. Smith plays Human LAPD officer Daryl Ward, who eventually encounters a darkness that will ultimately alter the future and his world as he knows it.

Bright is set to premiere on Netflix on December 22nd. In the meantime, check out the trailer below.
