Foxx to play Obama?

It goes without saying that everyone is focused on tomorrow’s inaguration. Which brings me to this article I found on Usmagazine.com:

Jamie Foxx Considers Playing Obama in Movie

Jamie Foxx might have already lined up his next big movie role.

The actor, who imitated Barack Obama at the We Are Once kick-off concert at the Lincoln Memorial on Sunday, seemed ready to portray the President-elect.

“Oh, I don’t know,” Foxx tells Usmagazine.com at the Declare Yourself event at the Renaissance Hotel in Washington, D.C. on Sunday. “He’s going to do his own movie for the next four to eight years.”

Judging the article, this sounds more like tabloid speculation than a reality. Besides, a Barack Obama biopic would film rushed. Obama needs to run the country, like actually run the country, and create some sort of presidential legacy before there is a film about his life. Hence why W works.
