While Drake is a phenomenal artist and business man, we often forget that he started out as an actor on hit Canadian teen drama ‘Degrassi.’ His character on the show, Jimmy may have known he was going to become a mainstream rapper, but when Drake himself said back in 2010 he would love to play former President Barack Obama in a biopic, he probably never imagine getting Barack Obama’s approval 10 years later.

Although there is no biopic about the life of the former president currently in the works, while speaking on ‘360 With Speedy Morman’ for an interview, Obama was asked directly if he’d be comfortable with Drake portraying him.

“I will say this, Drake seems to be able to do anything he wants. I mean, that is a talented, talented brother. So, if the time comes and he’s ready, you know…You know what, Drake has, more importantly I think, my household’s stamp of approval, I suspect Malia and Sasha will be fine with it.” Obama states.

Could you see Drake getting back into acting to play one of the most renowned and well respected Presidents of the United States?
