Will Smith has staked his claim to play Barack Obama if a film about the president is ever made. He says that he is perfect for the role because he and Obama are both tall and, mast importantly, have big ears. "That's the key", Smith says. "America loves ears, you know? Mickey Mouse started it; Googy and Dumbo followed behind. And America just loves the ears". Smith also said that he would wait until obama "writes the end of the story" before playing the role.
