According to an interview with VH1 News at Sundance Film Festival, Drake, now a super-popular albeit emo hip-hop star, wants to play President Barack Obama in a future biopic of the leader’s life.

Which makes sense since they look alike and Drake was once a super-popular albeit emo teenage “soap opera” star on the Canadian hit show, Degrassi.

“That’s the goal. I watch all the addresses. Any time I see him on TV, I don’t change the channel. I definitely pay attention and listen to the inflections of his voice. If you ask anyone who knows me, I’m pretty good at impressions.”

“I’ve been reading scripts for awhile,” Drake continued. “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.”
