Chris Rock has some advice for the former president and his lady.
It was recently announced that Michelle and Barack Obama landed a multi-year Netflix deal to produce scripted series, unscripted series, docu-series, documentaries, features and more. "One of the simple joys of our time in public service was getting to meet so many fascinating people from all walks of life, and to help them share their experiences with a wider audience,” Barack said of the move. “That’s why Michelle and I are so excited to partner with Netflix – we hope to cultivate and curate the talented, inspiring, creative voices who are able to promote greater empathy and understanding between peoples, and help them share their stories with the entire world.”
It looks like one of Netflix's other million-dollar signees, Chris Rock, isn't really for the move. The famed comedian recently chatted with The Hollywood Reporter and said he doesn't want to see the Obama's go down that path. "I don't want to live in a world where President Obama is worried about his Rotten Tomatoes score," Chris explained. "I want him above that at all times. Make your money, but I don't want [him] to be involved with that."
When the publication pressed the actor on what the former first couple should with their interest in showbiz he said: "I'd just send them over to Donald Glover. That's what I'd do."
