Does boy band heartthrob Harry Styles look enough like Mick Jagger to play him in an upcoming movie? Possibly.
Producers are reportedly eyeing Styles to play the swaggering Rolling Stones frontman in a biopic tentatively titled Exile On Main Street: A Season In Hell With The Rolling Stones, according to NME. The film is based off Robert Greenfield’s 2006 book by the same name and follows the band as they record their 1972 album Exile On Main Street.
Besides being brunette, lanky and British, Styles does share a few similarities with Jagger. It wouldn’t be a huge stretch to imagine him portraying the legendary musician even though fans of the classic rock band might not like a boy band icon stepping into his shoes.
Ever since One Direction went on hiatus in late 2015, rumors have circulated about what the remaining four members will do with their time off. When Harry Styles changed management in March, it ignited speculation that he was interested in pursuing acting.
