Wow! He's a pretty unexpected choice!
Sources reveal that the seksi actor wants to also produce the feature, and has met with Lennon's widow, Yoko Ono, and has even secured her seal of approval:
"Brad already has a writer working on the script. And Yoko has given the project her blessing so long as it's true to John's life. Brad wants to do all the singing himself and plans to take voice lessons. If he can't pull it off they'll use John's own voice. Brad has also been immersing himself in videos and books so he can get Lennon's mannerisms down pat."
Well, he seems to have a lot of passion for the project, so let's hope that it translates well into the final product!
He certainly doesn't look the part, but we imagine some make-up and prosthetics can change that with relative ease!
What do U think?? Do U think Brad is suited to play John Lennon??
