"I suspect Malia and Sasha will be fine with it".

In a recent interview for 360 With Speedy Morman, Obama spoke about a potential biopic about his life.

The Grammy victor, who started his career acting in the 2001 teen drama "Degrassi: The Next Generation" and went on to star in "Charlie Bartlett", a 2007 comedy-drama, first expressed interest in playing Obama in 2010.

In 2010, Drake told Paper magazine that he watches Obama so religiously that he felt he was already prepared to accurately portray him in a movie. Drake Could Play Obama On Big Screen " Drake seems to be able to do anything he wants", Obama said.

According to the interview the rapper expressed his interest in playing the first Black President of the United States 10 years ago. "I mean, he's a talented brother. So, if the time comes and he's ready..."

"But what is absolutely true is - and I never fully got out of the dog house for this - is that I put her and our kids through an extraordinarily stressful, hard sequence in deciding to run for president, right after I had just gone through a tough race", said Obama. I see all the directions. I watch all of his performances, I never change the channel if I get it. "If you ask anyone who knows me, I'm pretty good at impressions", the "Signs" hitmaker had said.

On the other hand, this year 2020 was released "Becoming", a documentary that explores the life of Michelle Obama, a look at her intimacy, her hopes and connection with others during her 2019 book tour.

In an interview with Complex, the former president said the rapper really has his family's stamp of approval to play him should a film about his life come down the line.

"By the time I left office, you had seen three million African Americans have health care that didn't have it before".
