Washington (ANI): Hollywood actor Denzel Washington is reportedly set to play US President Barack Obama in a new film. The Oscar winning star had recently expressed his desire to play the role of Obama in a film- but feared he would be too old for the role by the time a picture could eventually be produced.
Now, according to Britain's Daily Mail newspaper, Washington has landed the role of the President, and has the ultimate endorsement for his starring role.
"It was at the President's suggestion. The only problem is he has bigger ears than me," Contactmusic quoted Washington as saying.
