Casting Couch: Keith Moon

By Scott Lapatine / September 30, 2005

Golden Fiddle links to some casting news about an upcoming Keith Moon biopic. Apparently comedian Mike Myers has signed on to play the wild Who drummer. Pete Townshend has yet to complain about it on his blog, so that’s a good sign, but I’m not convinced Myers is the right guy to fill Moon’s vomit-covered shoes. Judging from his performance with Kanye on that Katrina benefit, he’d be better off playing a tree.

 

Speaking of upcoming movies about outrageous rockers … Elijah Wood as Iggy Pop? Wood’s iTunes Celebrity Playlist indicates he’s a music geek, but you know DJ Frodo spent an entire weekend obsessing over whether it was cool enough.
