Drake is at Sundance this week because everybody is at Sundance this week. I read a story this morning about how Stephanie Pratt was so drunk at Sundance and I was like oh yeah! Stephanie Pratt exists! (Also: good story! Congrats to all the journalists!) I’m sure whatever Stephanie Pratt’s doing at Sundance is very important and full of integrity. “I just want to work on projects that are creatively fulfilling and that speak to something true,” slurred Stephanie Pratt from her private booth at Tao. Anyway, Drake is at Sundance and someone talked to him and I guess he wants to be Barack Obama in a movie about Barack Obama. From ONTD:
“I hope somebody makes a movie about Obama’s life soon because I could play him,” said Drake. “That’s the goal. I watch all the addresses. Anytime 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.”
Hahaha. Oh man, you and me both, Drake. Every time the leader of the free world is on TV, I watch him because I want to perfect my impression of him. Isn’t it funny how everything he says sounds like such gibberish? Stimuwha? Troop draw dowhuh? But it’s the WAY he says things that is important. In case you ever get to play him in a movie. Fingers crossed. Drake went on to explain the type of roles he is looking for:
Drake admitted that most of the scripts he was getting right now were for roles of a rapper or basketball player, but that he was looking for something else, something that went beyond what people would expect him to play .
You mean like PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES? Because while I understand looking for roles other than rapper or basketball player (say, high school student in wheelchair, or soccer playing country singer) he is right that people do NOT expect him as the President of the United States. It might have something to do with his complete lack of gravitas and the sense that he barely understands half the words he’s saying unless he’s describing a $5,000 winter jacket. It’s a mystery. Anyway, anything you guys could do to get the word out would be super helpful. Like, if you have a friend who’s planning on making a movie about Barack Obama, maybe just put a bug in that friend’s ear. “What about Drake?” Or, “Drake could be Obama in the movie about Obama that you’re making. Have you thought of that? Just saying.” Let’s get the word out there, guys. Every little bit helps. #Drake4Obama trending worldwide!
