Denzel Washington has played Malcolm X, Hurricane Carter, and Frank Lucas to name a few, but the one person he does not want to play is Barack Obama.
Denzel says he is too old to play Barack Obama in a movie.
According to IMDB, the Oscar-winner admitted that he thinks it will be years before the US president’s life is made into a film, therefore making the role more suitable for a younger actor.
“When Obama’s story is ready to be told, I’ll be too old to do it,” the ‘American Gangster’ star said.
The 54-year-old also noted that even if the film was made now, the head of state is far too busy to help him make the role seem convincing.
“He has too much to do to have me asking for tips on how to play him,” Washington added.
