4 Comments 04 January 2012

Elton John has confirmed that his life will be the subject of a film. Details are scant at this point, but Sir Elton has stated that that he has a wishlist of actor’s that he would like to portray him. On the top of his list is popstar turned actor, Justin Timberlake.

Timberlake would be a fitting choice since he has already played a young Elton in a previously released video. Check out his performance and tell us how you think Timberlake would do in the film:

    I take it Justin was lip-syncing to the real Elton. Pretty good, but he is a little too tall & thin. If he could really sound like Elton, he’d probably do well playing him in a movie.

  2. Kris says:

    I just don’t buy Mr. Timberlake physically as Elton John at all. He seems like an ‘easy’ choice. If I were casting I’d cast my net wider and see what others might have. We could be really surprised at what could be found.

  3. Dawn says:

    I think he could pull it off, but I”d agree with the first comment, he needs to put on a few pounds. Elton had a slightly rounder/chubbier face when he was younger. But I actually don’t think Timberlake is that far off, I think we’re just too used to the older, more plump Elton John of the present.

    Justin Timberlake also played young Elton in David LaChapelle’s video for Rocket Man that played behind the stage during the Red Piano concert.
