Tika Sumpter, Michelle Obama, Southside With You


Tika Sumpter has been cast to play Michelle Obama in upcoming biopic “Southside With You” about how she and Barack Obama met.

Southside With You is romantic drama inspired by Barack and Michelle Obama’s first date back in 1989. Barack was working his wooing skills to sweep Michelle off her feet. Apparently it worked because the two are now married with two beautiful daughters and are the epitome of what a dream family should look like.

According to Deadline:

The film covers the eventful date in 1989 when a young associate named Barack Obama was trying to woo lawyer Michelle Robinson on a summer afternoon and evening, that took them from the Art Institute of Chicago to a screening of Spike Lee’s Do The Right Thing, to their first smooch outside of an ice cream parlor.

To be honest, I haven’t seen Tika Sumpter in a movie since I saw Ride Along which was a comedy with her, Kevin Hart and Ice Cube. I’ve tried to get into her show Have and Have Nots, but I just can’t seem to take a liking to it. Maybe I should try watching it again since everyone else seems to rave about it so much.

Tika has been doing the damn thang since she first hit the scene and it’s nice to see her playing such a large role as the FLOTUS Michelle Obama. I’m sure they will have her as fashionable and stylish as they do the first lady assuming that she was even a fashionista back in the day to catch Barack Obama’s eye.

Speaking of the POTUS, Barack Obama will be played by Parker Sawyers and the film is set to come out in 2016. This movie should be pretty interesting and I’m looking forward to seeing it because it’s always nice to see how great couples met and have kept the spice in their lives going from years and years on in. I truly admire the Obamas for all the love and affection they show each other in public. They’re honestly the first Presidential family I’ve ever really paid attention to and they’re the most admirable.
