Barack Obama has named the person who he wants to play him in a movie about his life.

During a recent episode of Complex's 360 with Speedy Morman the 59-year-old was asked about the possibility of a future biopic. The former president responded that he has someone in mind to play him.

"I will say this: Drake seems to be able to do anything he wants. I mean, that is a talented, talented brother. So, if the time comes and he's ready," reports Vulture.

He went on to say that the Canadian rapped has his household's stamp of approval, "I suspect Malia and Sasha would be just fine with it."

Actors who have played the 44th president of the United States include Devon Terrell in the Barry, Parker Sawyers in Southside With You and Kingsley Ben-Adir in the mini-series, The Comey Rule.
