Elton John is moving forward with plans for his upcoming biopic, and the "Rocket Man" wants "Sexyback" singer Justin Timberlake to play the starring role.
John, who says the film will be "in the manner of Moulin Rouge," tells the LA Times:
- "Number on my wish list is Justin Timberlake, because he played me before in a David LaChapelle video of 'Rocket Man' and was superb."
The 64-year-old singer will also serve as executive producer. Timberlake has not officially been offered the role.
Do you think JT would be the best pick?
