    saw that mike myers is on "letterman" tonight promoting "bastids." so i went on imdb to see what else he might be up to.

    still early, but he's listed to play keith moon in possible upcoming bio-pic.

    anyone else think he could nail this? ??? ??? ???

    I'd be interested to see a Moon biopic as long as Myers doesn't channel too much Garth.

    He does seem way too tame to pull off such a character.

    Mike Myers strikes me as a singularly awful choice for this.

    If they want someone who could pull it off, top of the list should be Jason Schwartzman. He can act, he looks like Moon, and he happens to be a hell of a drummer -- he was one of the original members of Phantom Planet, and now has a couple of solo albums under the name Coconut Records. He'd be perfect... unless they're looking for Austin Powers holding drum sticks.

    How is any actor going to replicate Moon's drumming style? That seems like an impossibility to me.

    I had no idea that a Keith Moon biopic is in the works. They should cast Superchunk drummer Jon Wurster as Moon. He bears enogh of a resemblance to Moon and his playing style is reminiscent of Moon's. Check out when he sits in with Guided by Voices during "I Am a Tree" from the Electrifying Conclusion DVD [I tried finding it on Youtube. No dice.] for further evidence.

    I think any movie where Myers is playing someone other than a British spy or voicing a big green ogre screams epic fail.

    Bolo Yeung makes a good start here......

    I think that's been a possible upcoming picture for like 10 years. As Myers's career keeps plummeting, I've heard less about it.
