DaBaby Wants This Academy Award-Winning Star Playing Him in a Biopic DaBaby is definitely a man with a plan. He has stated he plans to retire from rap in 5 years. He is also thinking about his future biopic. He already has a name for it, Baby Jesus. He is not sure who he wants to direct his future biopic but he does know who he wants to portray him. Academy Award Winner Denzel Washington. He recognizes Denzel is a little old for the role at the age of 65 but he has a solution for that. Might need Denzel to go back in a time machine. If you were directing your own biopic, who would you want to play you?
