Jo Brand wants singer Morrissey in her new film - Unrealitytv
Comedienne Jo Brand has revealed that she wants singer Morrissey to star in her new film, which is a TV adaptation of her book, The More You Ignore Me.
Jo has reportedly been commissioned by the BBC to adapt her novel, which centres on a troubled young girl who finds comfort in Morrissey’s music, and Jo would like the man himself to play the part.
She said, “I’ve just completed the final draft of the script based on one of my novels, which the BBC has commissioned as a 90-minute film.
“I’m really, really pleased about that. I’m going to try to get Morrissey to play the vicar in it, but I’m not holding out much hope.”
Jo is also about to star in Jo Brand’s Big Splash, a comedy series in which she tries out all manner of water based activities.
She told What’s On TV, “Basically it was quite nice swimming ideas at the beginning and then it metamorphosed into horrible ideas.
“I was tortured in various forms of water or made to jump off things or generally humiliated!”
Jo Brand’s Big Splash will air on Dave from September 22.
