Robert Pattinson as Kurt Cobain?
Should the glittering vampire play the smelly grunge rocker? That’s the question of the day. It is rumored that Kurt Cobain‘s widow, Courtney Love, is trying to get a biopic up and running about him and she wants Robert Pattinson to play Cobain.
Love is working on a planned Cobain biopic and favors the Twilight star for the lead role, according to the U.K.’s Sun newspaper. (For the record, she wants to cast Scarlett Johansson to portray her.) [via People]
This is the most ridiculous thing I’ve heard this morning. But there’s still time. It’s not that I see Kurt Cobain as anything more than a depressed musician who did too many drugs and bitched about his success. I guess I just see the rumor of Pattinson playing a musician coming too close to Kristen Stewart playing Joan Jett.
Next thing you know, Taylor Lautner‘s playing Steven Tyler!!
