Does "He would make an excellent Oberon, King of the Fairies" mean "He would make himself an excellent King named Oberon, the King of the Fairies"?

Thanks in advance

I interviewed Weinberg in 1995 at the University of Texas (of all places). In my recently republished book The End of Science, I stated that with his “crabapple cheeks, vaguely Asian eyes and silver hair still tinged with red, Weinberg resembles an elf, a large, dignified elf. He would make an excellent Oberon, King of the Fairies in A Midsummer Night’s Dream.” In the interview, Weinberg was brutally candid, rejecting the idea that a final theory would render reality meaningful or even intelligible to non-scientists.
