In an interview with “Entertainment Tonight” last year, Barack Obama said that he’d like actor Will Smith to play him if a movie is ever made about his life. “Will and I have talked about this because he has the ears!” Obama said. Smith recently commented on the matter in London, where he was speaking to promote the UK premier of his movie Seven Pounds. “If I am ordered by my commander in chief to star in a film about him, I will do my duty as an American,” he said, beaming. Smith will attend the inauguration next week.
