Rapper Drake is eager to return to his acting roots to portray U.S. president Barack Obama on the big screen. The "Best I Ever Had" hitmaker rose to fame as a teen star in his native Canada on the TV series "Degrassi: The Next Generation" before taking the hip-hop industry by storm in 2009.

But Drake admits he's keeping an eye on potential acting projects documenting the life of America's first black president because he's been studying Obama's behavior and speech patterns from the news.

He tells Paper magazine, "I hope somebody makes a movie about Obama's life soon because I could play him. That's the goal... Anytime I see him on TV, I don't change the channel, I definitely pay attention and listen to the inflections of his voice."
