"It's about the ears! That's the thing. You know, people see the ears. Barack and I both have the ears. Clearly I'm the most natural choice."

Smith, 43, related that he joked to Obama that while he would consider playing him on-screen, it was up to the president "to write the ending."

No, seriously, can you see the movie star as our President?
