Casting Ideas For The Kurt Cobain Biopic

|

A Kurt Cobain biopic is reportedly in the works at Universal, and there is already a lot of speculation about who will play the late Nirvana front man.  I, for one, think they should hand this to Pixar and have it star his creepy Guitar Hero doppelganger, but that probably won’t happen. If the producers go the totally lame route and cast real humans in this thing, I have a few ideas for who should play the major players from the grunge-ol’ days:

Kurt Cobain – Vincent Kartheiser (Mad Men‘s Pete Campbell) from the Golden Globes

Dave Grohl – Shelley Duvall in the The Shining

More brilliant casting choices after the jump.

Krist Novoselic – The Daily Show‘s Rob Riggle

1992 Kurt Loder – 2010 David Bowie

The Nevermind baby – Weird Al Yankovic (naturally)

Eddie Vedder – The stoner kid from Dazed and Confused

Courtney Love – Meryl Streep

Come on. You know Meryl Streep could pull it off and win twelve Oscars. Plus Courtney Love is a producer on this movie, so there is little chance she’ll come off looking like anything but a model wife and American.
