Forest Whitaker wouldn't attempt movie portrayal of Obama

London, November 11 (ANI): Oscar winner Forest Whitaker has ruled out ever playing Barack Obama in a movie biopic of the U.S. President, as he feels that the role would be too daunting.

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.

"He is too impressive a man, I wouldn't want to try," Whitaker told Sky News.

"He is amazing - the things that he has done and the things he has accomplished," he added. (ANI)
