Dave Grohl Wants Shelley Duvall to Play Him in Kurt Cobain Biopic


Dave Grohl


Calling himself 'the least manly dude that you have ever met in your life', Dave Grohl hopes actress Shelley Duvall will portray him in upcoming biopic about his late bandmate Kurt Cobain.

Former Nirvana's drummer Dave Grohl wants an actress to portray him in a planned biopic about his late bandmate Kurt Cobain - and he's convinced Shelley Duvall is perfect for the role. "The Messenger (2009)" moviemaker Oren Moverman is reportedly in talks to direct the film, based on Charles R. Cross' 2001 book "Heavier Than Heaven: A Biography of Kurt Cobain".

And Grohl is convinced "The Shining" actress has the talents to pull off a sex swap and play a male rock icon. He tells People.com, "I don't know about anyone else, but I'm crossing my fingers that Shelley Duvall plays me. Shelley Duvall in 'The Shining' ... That is my face, you cannot get any closer than that. I am probably the least manly dude that you have ever met in your life. So why not have Shelley Duvall play me?"

Grohl is quick to point out that Duvall wouldn't be the first female to step into a male rock star's shoes. He adds, "Put a beard on her. Cate Blanchett did it in the (Bob) Dylan movie ('I'm Not There')!"
