Forest Whitaker rules out Barack Obama role

Whitaker wowed cinema-goers and picked up a Best Actor Academy Award for his intense performance as former Ugandan dictator Idi Amin in 2006 film The Last King of Scotland.

However, the star is adamant he would not want to attempt a movie portrayal of Obama because playing the American leader would be too daunting.

Whitaker tells Sky News, “No, I will be watching that one! He is too impressive a man, I wouldn’t want to try. He is amazing – the things that he has done and the things he has accomplished.”
