[photogallerylink id=74032 align=left]He got his start as an actor on the Canadian teen show DeGrassi: The Next Generation but now we hear that Drake wants to make the jump to the big screen, playing none other than President Barack Obama!

According to Rolling Stone, Drake spoke with VH1 News earlier in the week while at the Sundance Film Festival saying, “I hope somebody makes a movie about Obama’s life soon because I could play him.”

Apparently Drake is a huge fan of the American president and spends lots of time studying him.

I watch all the addresses. Any time I see him on TV, I don’t change the channel. I definitely pay attention and listen to the inflections of his voice. If you ask anyone who knows me, I’m pretty good at impressions.

When asked about movie roles, Drake said that he is typically offered roles of basketball players and rappers, but that’s not what he wants to do.

I want to do something great. I want to do something for my culture: the younger people who are still in tune with everything going on.

So what do you think?  Do you think Drake is the right man for the job if a movie were made about the earlier days of President Obama?  Strangely enough, I’ve always thought that Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson did a great job as “The Rock Obama”, even if it was just a Saturday Night Live sketch!

What’s new on JAMZ?
