Washington 'Lands Obama Role'
Denzel Washington is celebrating after reportedly landing the role of U.S. President Barack Obama in a new movie.
The 54-year-old Oscar winner has long voiced his interest in playing Obama, 47, in a film - but feared he would be too old for the role by the time a picture of the politician's life was eventually produced.
Washington has now confirmed he's set to portray the President, according to Britain's Daily Mail newspaper - and he has the ultimate endorsement for his starring role.
The actor says, "It was at the President's suggestion. The only problem is he has bigger ears than me."
