28 January 2012, 16:03
The 'Find Your Love' rapper thinks he would be perfect for the role if they make a movie about the US leader's life.
Drake has confessed that he would love to play President Barack Obama if a film was to be made of the political figure's life.
The 'Forever' star was speaking to VH1 News at the Sundance Film Festival recently and explained that he is a keen follower of the US leader and pays close attention to his characteristics.
The rapper said: "I hope somebody makes a movie about Obama's life soon because I could play him. That's the goal. I watch all the addresses. Any time I seen him on TV, I don't change the channel. I definitely pay attention and listen to the inflections of his voice.
The 'Take Care' star went on to admit that he fancies himself as a good impressionist and has been told by his close friends that he has a talent for it.
He added: "If you ask anyone who knows me, I'm pretty good at impressions."
The Canadian rapper went on to reveal that he has been reading scripts for some time but wants to take a role which will let him achieve "something great".
"I've been reading scripts for a while. I want to do something great. I want to do something for my culture: the younger people who are still in tune with everything going on. I'm actually writing with my friends right now."
Justin Timberlake was also recently in the headlines after it was revealed Sir Elton John wanted the former boy band singer to play himself in a movie of his life.
Meanwhile, Drake was recently confirmed to play at the NHL All Star Game in Canada tomorrow (29th January).
