Will Smith is convinced that he is the "natural choice" to portray President Obama onscreen

The ‘Men in Black 3’ star made the revelations in an interview on Monday, when he was asked about rumours if he could play the Commander-in-Chief someday in a biopic.

“It’s about the ears, that’s the thing,” a newspaper quoted the actor as saying on the interview.
“People see the ears and Barack and I both have the ears, so I’m the most natural choice.
“I told [Obama] jokingly, ‘It’s definitely something I would consider, you just have to write the ending.’ So he’s working on the ending right now,” he added.
Smith, 43, is currently in Europe promoting the third installation of ‘Men in Black’, which will hit US theatres on May 25.
