Another rock legend long overdue for a biopic is finally getting his due. A movie about the all-too-short life of late Thin Lizzy frontman Phil Lynott is in the works. Now who do you cast to play the charismatic frontman?
While I’m well aware that an unknown, younger actor will likely get the nod, I decided to widen the net to include some of our more well-known thespians. With that, my first choice would be Fear the Walking Dead’s Cliff Curtis, who I’d say has quite a bit of free time now expect he will be in James Cameron’s upcoming slew of Avatar movies.
Close second would probably go to Daniel Sunjata:
Regardless of who gets the nod, I can’t wait to see and hear big screen versions of some of my favorite Thin Lizzy tunes.
About the Author
Hi, I'm Pete Rizzo, early morning elixir for your weekends. I love music and I love talking about it. I grew up listening to bands like Rush (best band on the planet!), Van Halen (Diamond Dave all the way), AC/DC (Bon rules!) and Genesis (the Gabriel years). But my true love is progressive rock and heavy metal. The louder, crunchier, more bombastic and self-indulgent, the better! When I’m not on the air, I’m either training in martial arts, deciding which tattoo I should get next, reading a good book (I still enjoy turning actual pages), or my wife and I are planning our next big travel excursion. I’m on every Saturday and Sunday morning. You can also follow me on on Twitter @PeteRizzoWBAB. I’d love to hear from you.
