Adam Ant struggling to find lead for biopic

WENN

Eighties star Adam Ant is struggling to cast the right actor to portray him in his energetic punk days for a new biopic.

The "Goody Two-Shoes" singer started out on the punk scene in London in the late 1970s, before finding fame in the charts with a string of pop hits. He is now planning a biographical film based his life before he became a star, but admits he can't find the perfect actor to play him.

Bing: Watch vintage Adam Ant videos

He tells Britain's Daily Star, "Getting someone who can portray how physical I was during the punk days is tough.

"James Franco and Jude Law were mentioned but I won't let anyone play me unless they can handle the danger and sexuality of those early days.

"I want it to focus on the punk era rather than when I became a success, that's when it was most interesting. It's a bit mundane once you're on [defunct British music show] 'Top Of The Pops.'"

The first person to come to mind is Johnny Depp!!!! He is a great actor and he wouldn't have to change his apperance much for the role.  Johnny is way better looking though

Adam, I love you but why just do a movie about your punk years? I read your autobiography and found it to be utterly fascinating. I couldn't put it down. It was so honest and it really educated me about bipolar disorder. I think that a film based on your entire autobiography would be a really amazing movie.

As to who should play you, I vote for Kellan Lutz. :-)
