Now that first lady Michelle Obama has proven to be a dancing sensation, she may tear up the big screen.

Legendary American film director Woody Allen recently told British talk show “Daybreak” that he’d invite the anti-obesity activist to be in one of his movies if he deemed her fit for the role.

“If I was in a room with Michelle Obama, and I thought she was right for a part, I wouldn’t hesitate to ask her,” Allen told the television show.

The New York native, who is also the director of colorful new romantic comedy “Midnight in Paris,” said he had cast France’s first lady Carla Bruni in the movie after having a meal with her and husband Nicolas Sarkozy. (RELATED: Carla Bruni: My pregnancy ‘uninteresting’ to the French)

Michelle Obama has had her fair share of camera time, so perhaps she’d have an easy transition onto the silver screen. Earlier this year, the first lady showed up on the set of Nickelodeon sitcom, “iCarly” for a guest appearance. According to PopEater, the episode revolves around main character Carly breaking rules in an attempt to video chat with her father, who is serving in the military overseas. Portraying herself, Michelle Obama becomes aware of Carly’s endeavors and pays the young girl a visit to discuss the importance of family contact while soldiers serve abroad.
