Doing the Terrace Stomp
I've siad it before and I'll say it again. If the do make a film of The Smiths they could do worse than get Will Young in to play Morrissey. He can sing, he can act and he's got the big underbite too.

Morrissey in the Interesting Drug Single is his double.

 
Morrissey....Billy Bates.
Marr. Chrissie Hynde.
Rourke. The new fella in corrie ( the one who is staying with Tyrone, and doing the two "birds" at the same time).
Joyce. my mate Tony ( and he's a decent drummer too...)
Well....you did ask!!!

I've always seen a very strong resemblance as well- interesting idea.
 

Buzzetta

WOOOOOOOO!!!!!
Will Smith

it does not matter what role... however... Will Smith needs to be in the movie as one of the leads.

Will Smith can do the soundtrack, which will be rap versions of seminal smiths songs

It would be a pretty boring movie though. Maybe there could be a secondary plot strand featuring the tragic romance between Morrissey and Johnny Marr, and there'd be loads of gay sex and then in the second half of of the film EVERYTHING could be WILDLY OVEREXAGGERATED and Morrissey is like this monstrous racist thug who burns down the local orphanage to erect a 20 ft cast iron statue of him cradling a little calf in his arms.

I made a thread like this last week.

I'd cast Paul Wesley as Moz.


Patty Considine as Mike Joyce.
Rafe Spall as Rourke. We could have a mini Hot Fuzz reunion. "You have a mustache.." "Yeah I know".

I kind of want Kevin Mcdonald from kids in the hall as Marr. I don't know why.
