Los Angeles - (ReUterus & Ass Mess): Primary Colors actor Adrian Lester is being tipped for the starring role of a born-again Henry Burton in a biopic about Barack Obama's stellar rise to fame.
Hollywood sources are agog with rumors that Obama was always the secret role model for the Henry Burton characterisation in the 1996 film.
This depicted Burton as a black campaign aide for southern governor and Clintonesque presidential wannabe Jack Stanton whose ambitions started falling apart after disclousre of involvement in an anti-war protest in Chicago, Obama's home stomping ground.
"The idea that ABC anchorman George Stephanopoulos could have been the real inspiration behind the Burton role was always a spolier," a LAFagHagSlagMag editorial said today.
"We always figured the real eminence grise - or is it eminence noir? - would surface one day."
Jesse Jacskon has refused a DNA paternity test on Barack Obama.
