Michael Sheen Wants to Play John Lennon in a Beatles Movie


Michael Sheen is no novice at portraying British icons on the big screen -- including former UK Prime Minister Tony Blair -- and he'd love to play John Lennon in a film about the legendary Beatles. Still, he's convinced he'd be cast as a different Beatle instead. He explained: “I’d want to play Lennon, but I probably would be cast as McCartney!”

The 40-year-old actor, who played interviewer David Frost in Frost/Nixon, would have to get over his nerves before agreeing to any prospective role. Despite his own celebrity status, Michael was too star-struck to have a proper conversation with 67-year-old McCartney when they met on a plane recently.

He is quoted by Canadian publication NOW Magazine: “I met Paul McCartney on a flight not long ago. I was sitting there going, ‘I can’t go over there.’ And then he came over to me. He said, ‘You’re famous, aren’t you? I’ve seen you on the TV.’ And I thought, ‘Yeah, I’ve seen you on the TV a few times as well!’ ”
