U2 Movie

Okay, I don't know if this has come up before but I was wondering this on my way home from work.

If they were to make a movie about the career of U2, which actors do you think they should get to play our boys?

I think

Larry: Brad Pitt
Adam: George Clooney (simply because they have the same hair)
Edge: Can't think of anyone at the moment
Bono: Ben Stiller (he does an awesome impression)

Larry- I agree with you on Brad.
Adam- Billy Bob Thornton (For some reason, I see a slight resemblence, but I have no idea why)
Edge- Russell Crowe (If Russell shaves his hair, he might look like the Edge).
Bono- Gotta go with Ben Stiller.

Actually, I think I would go with some as yet undiscovered phenomenal actors who we could really believe WERE U2, you know?

Plus I'm all about indie spirit!

Good question! I like yours(and everyone's) choices. I could see Ed Norton playing Edge, he's such an awesome actor!

For some reason, I keep thinking that I could see Ewan McGregor as a young Bono, especially after seeing Moulin Rouge. He's kinda short, he's got blue eyes and he sure can sing... POP Bono kinda reminds me of Trainspotting Ewan, probably the haircut, or lack of hair actually... And seeing Ewan in the tight leather pants would be an added bonus

I haven't seen Ben Stiller's impression but he kinda looks like an ape or some kinda of monkey-related species. Something about the way he walk, his body language, I dunno...
He's really funny though, just not that attractive.

Matt Damon would make a good Larry, or maybe that guy from the new Star Wars movie. Edward Norton as Edge would be great, though after seeing the Billy Bob thread I do see some ressemblance, j/k. For Adam I have no idea...

As an ape, I am happy to be associated with such a fine talent as Mr. Stiller!

What about Jason Lee as Edge? I think there's a bit of a resemblance. And he played a rock star in "Almost Famous."

I think Robin Williams should play Bono. Well Not now, he might too old for this role, but he looks like Bono, isn't it?

Yes, I agree! Ben Stiller = yuck! He looks like an ape. The only time I could bear to look at him was in "Heavyweights" where he played a sadistic counselor to fat little boys. I hated his part, but his hair was gorgeous- and it disgused those HIDEOUS apelike ears of his and took attention from his disgusting looking teeth and mouth. Otherwise, Ben Stiller is GROSS with a capital G. Don't insult my Bono!

I have always thought, I mean since 1985 when I saw him in the "North and South" TV miniseries, that he reminded me of Bono. Yes, I was already hot for Bono at that point and he was on my mind. Now I think after all these years, he actually looks more like older Bono than 1985 Bono, yet at the time the resemblance was there!

Swayze in North and South- his most Bono-like







Swayze as the Fly



Swayze as older Bono



as young Bono



with long hair

POP Bono should be played by Robin Williams, he looks just like him in Popeye and Kill Smoochy *lol*

One more of Patrick Swayze as politicing Bono in a suit



Even though I couldn't find a pic that shows them good enough, Patrick also has the same color eyes as Bono, and he gets the same look in them when he's acting.

Guys, Bono (esp. Rattle and Hum Bono) needs to be played by Daniel Day Lewis ala Last of the Mohicans. ::

Oooh, here's another idea for "older" Bono:
Gabriel Byrne. He's got style, class, dark wavy hair and that certain Irish 'je ne sais quoi'. Also, he's friends with Bono so he's bound to have had some Bononess rubbed off on him And he's a great actor to boot...

But Ewan's still my first choice coz of them leather pants he'd have to wear

Here, we have a man who claims professes to enjoy flower arranging, has no qualms over donning a skirt at any given time and, now we learn, prefers to use the ladies' restroom.
