Former NBA star, Kim Jong Un's "friend for life," North Korean FBI informant — Dennis Rodman does it all, and now he wants a Nobel Peace Prize for his efforts.

In a new interview with Sports Illustrated, Rodman detailed his February trip to North Korea and said he has made it his "mission to break the ice between hostile countries."

"Why it's been left to me to smooth things over, I don't know. Dennis Rodman, of all people. Keeping us safe is really not my job; it’s the black guy’s [Obama’s] job," Rodman said. "But I'll tell you this: If I don’t finish in the top three for the next Nobel Peace Prize, something’s seriously wrong."

Rodman made the trip to North Korea in February to film a basketball documentary for HBO, and hung out with Kim Jong Un, the country's despot supreme leader. After the trip, Rodman called Jong Un "an awesome guy" and a "friend for life."

Despite a string of propaganda videos depicting a North Korean missile attack on the United States, and a handful of nuclear tests, Rodman said Kim Jong Un is just a "kid" who has no interest in starting a nuclear war.

"Kim is not one of these Saddam Hussein-type characters that wants to take over the world," Rodman told reporters after his visit. "He doesn’t want to kill anyone — he wants to talk peace."

Rodman has also advocated for the release of Kenneth Bae, a Korean-American tour operator who was arrested in North Korea in November and has been held there ever since. Officials claim the 44-year-old Washington state man entered the country with a disguised identity and committed unspecified "hostile acts" against the state.

Twitter users had mixed reactions to Rodman's Nobel Prize campaign.
