Regina King Says She'd be Honored to Play Michelle Obama in a Movie


Regina King I'd be Honored to Play Michelle Obama … But Not Yet, Right?

Regina King‘s landed her next big movie role … well, if our cameraman has any say in the matter.

We got the freshly Golden Globe-nominated actress leaving The Sea Fire Grill in NYC Friday night, and with Michelle Obama currently promoting her new book, “Becoming” … we asked King if she’d be down to play the former First Lady in her inevitable biopic.

Regina thinks we might be jumping the gun, but this is Hollywood … so when it happens she’s not about to say no.

The “If Beale Street Could Talk” and “Seven Seconds” star already has a history of playing real-life women in critically-acclaimed films — she’s Margie Hendrix in the 2004 biopic “Ray” — so this just makes sense.

Regina might need to work on Michelle’s dance moves, though.
