It's Obama's fault.

What was the point of this thread? Someone needs to temporarily suspend the account of the user who started this thread if only to spare us from a single asinine post.

Was this supposed to be a joke? Because if so, I think it really missed the boat.

That being said, the only person I can envision portraying Obama (not that I really think an Obama movie needs to be made) is Will Smith. They look close enough and Smith is a good enough actor to play such a big role.

Danny Glover
Malcolm Jamal Warner
and the guy who played Dwayne Wayne on A Different World

All black thus qualifing them to play Obama

Morgan Freeman makes sense. He should be 90 when filming begins.

I think Spike Lee would be more likely to make an Obama film than Stone.

I find it amazing how much emphasis people put on the actor having to look just like the real Obama. Is that really SO important?

The sidekick on "Walker, Texas Ranger" looks a little like him.

No one "Obama" is not the kind of subject worth a movie intill he starts working on fixing the state of or country if he ever does?

Am I misunderstanding your statement? Are you saying that Bush hasn't done or affected anything over the past 7-3/4 years?

I don't see a theatrical release within the next ten years. If it were made sooner, I see Will Smith. He said about doing it on Colbert's show. Though big actors' schedules, pay, etc. always stand in the way, I can see Smith doing it. If not Smith - who knows. In it's made in ten years, it could be anyone.

No, because the implication was that Obama had to fix things or be positive for there to be a movie made out of him. Bush did neither.

They don't make movies about good presidents. Even if Obama has a terrible 4 years, he still won't be movie worthy because he's a democrat.

There have been several films about Abraham Lincoln.

Martin Scorcese has a movie about a Republican who wasn't shot coming out in 2010:
