Chris Rock and Ben Stiller were on Today this morning to promote their movie Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa. Rock, who plays a zebra, made a quick joke about being biracial, which prompted Meredith Vieira to ask him about Barack Obama, and Rock's film Head of State, in which he plays a black presidential candidate, who was chosen by the Democratic party after their original candidate died. Rock says that he never imagined that it would be possible that a black man would be president, and if he'd known, he wouldn't have made the movie as silly. Clip above.
