Who Should Play Kurt Cobain?

Jump to Comments

Happy birthday Chuck Norris, Jon Hamm & Sharon Stone. Great feedback on yesterday’s poll. Turns out you were pretty sold on Hugh Jackman as fave Oscar host. So the entertainment world’s evidently moved past the Oscars, and is now busying itself with legal issues – of the dicey and expensive variety. So here goes. First up: that guy who allegedly tried to extort $2 million from David Letterman by threatening to expose some of Dave’s dalliances with members of the fairer sex who also happen to be on his em, payroll,  pleaded guilty. He’ll  get “six months of jailtime, five years probation and 1,000 hours of community service”. Also in trouble, rapper Lil Wayne has headed to Rikers Island for  a lil jailtime — on account of his gun possession. How much of the yearlong sentence he’ll actually do remains to be seen.  In other legal news, Lindsay Lohan is suing E-trade for $100 million dollars because of an ad they ran about a “milkaholic” kid who’s name also happens to be Lindsay. Not sure this one’s going anywhere. But let’s us go to movie news. In what seems to me to be a good idea all around, Robert DeNiro has signed on to play Vince Lombardi in the biopic of the beloved Green Bay Packers coach.  Who’s not going to see that?  Even if you don’t care about football…or DeNiro…seems like too much of a delicious comb to skip. Maybe they’ll get Sandy B. to play his wife. And here’s more casting news, which brings us to today’s poll. Woody Harrelson was nominated for an Oscar for  “The Messenger” (an awesome film by the way). Now, the guy who wrote and directed that movie – Oren Moverman – is directing the new movie about the late Nirvana singer Kurt Cobain. Courtney Love is attached to the project, so anyone who thinks she may have had something to do with her hub’s untimely death is going to have to watch someone else’s movie. We have reports that she wants Ryan Gosling for the part. That said, who do you want to see step into Kurt’s shoes? If you have other suggestions, by all means let us know. Voice your choice in today’s featured poll and tell us which of these actors you’d most like to see play Kurt Cobain in the movie  about his life:

1)  Ryan Gosling

2)    Emile Hirsch

3)    Jared Leto

4)    Zac Efron
