The uncanny resemblance that Parker has to Obama was recognized, and Richard Tanne with his brilliant script and created this film. Southside With You will hit the theaters in August 2016. Parker Sawyers was not the prominent name and all that changed when he was cast to play Obama by Richard Tanne. Parker, who used to work for the Republican Governor of Indiana, had no intention of getting into acting. He admits to having not even acted in the school play and that to have got a lead role in the movie and to play the President of America is a dream comes true for this London Dwelling actor. Parker, who has bloomed late into the acting business, is married with a kid and is lives in London. He began acting in small roles in movies like Zero Dark Thirty, which released in 2012, he plays the role of a cop sporting a beard. Seen in insignificant roles such as in Survivor (2015) and Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit (2014), Parker’s career was full of such roles. Either a cop in a movie or playing second fiddle to the leads in the movie was his forte. He was never the man in neither the poster nor the critically acclaimed actor. But 2015 was a turning point in the career for Parker, whose long wait for a significant role was translated into reality. Parker, who was cast in South Side With You drew a lot of attention, and suddenly there was a huge buzz around him.

The movie which has Tika Sumpter playing Michelle Obama is set in the early days of the president and circles the first date with the wife to be Michelle.
