Derek Luke as Barack Obama Sr. 

To play the man who looms large in the president's imagination and is the subject of his best-selling book requires an actor of considerable chops. We nominate Derek Luke for the part of the Kenya-born missionary and intellectual, whose history with Islam gave President Obama his middle name, and a right-wing headache.
