Which of these fine young men should play Bowie in the inevitable biopic?
>>
Bowie's family would never let a woman play him and Redmayne's lips disgust me so i'd go with Dane DeHaan
>>
Fuck, I didn't even think of DeHaan. Good candidate.

Only a gender wraith should play another gender wraith.

>>61672521
But Tilda Swinton has already played David Bowie, and David Bowie has played Tilda Swinton.
>>
>>61672492
If they do a biopic, do it like I'm Not There. Multiple actors for different eras. Definitely Swinton and DeHaan, not too sure about Redmayne.
>>
>>61672492
>none of them looks like Bowie
Why? Simply because their haircuts are similar?
>>
>>61672701
You know how hard it's to find someone who looks Bowiw and, more importantly, can act?

There something about Eddie Redmayne's face that makes me dislike him. So i really hope not him...

Dane DeHaan looks the part enough

Anyone who looks this fab in a mugshot is an impossible act to follow, and I can't think of anyone who could play Bowie except Bowie.

Tilda Swinton is the only correct option, but sadly it will never happen.

If I can get acting lessons, sure.

She looks a lot like young David Bowie. Either way they're both androgynous aliens.

Casting Tilda Swinton as David Bowie in a biopic, and not even making an attempt to hide her gender would be a monumental stroke of genius.

Hell no.

That's too hard a troll.

Bowie immortalized himself, casting an androgynous woman in his role would be brilliant.
>>
>>61672919
The conclusion is simple: The Bowie biopic should be animated.

DANNY TREJO

>>61673098
their features are mad different. I mean their hair is sooort of similar and they're both thin I guess?
>>
>>61673195
I've got an better idea. Tilda Swinton and Brian Blessed (with beard) shares the role. It has been done before:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/That_Obscure_Object_of_Desire

>A dysfunctional and sometimes violent romance happens between Mathieu (Fernando Rey), a middle-aged, wealthy Frenchman, and a young, impoverished and beautiful flamenco dancer from Seville, Conchita, played by Carole Bouquet and Angela Molina. The two actresses each appear unpredictably in separate scenes, and differ not only physically, but temperamentally as well.A dysfunctional and sometimes violent romance happens between Mathieu (Fernando Rey), a middle-aged, wealthy Frenchman, and a young, impoverished and beautiful flamenco dancer from Seville, Conchita, played by Carole Bouquet and Angela Molina.

>>61673201
Remember how they re-created the young Jeff Bridges in Tron Legacy? It wasn't too smooth but maybe the tech of that has improved.
>>
>>61673215
YES! DANNY TREJO, BRIAN BLESSED AND TILDA SWINTON ARE DAVID BOWIE!
>>
>>61673201
>3 hour musical set to his music with no dialogue with the animation style shifting from era to era

It'd be incredible
>>
>>61673281
I was thinking of traditional animation.
>>
>>61673314
And it should be no sloppy music string of shit music videos for eDgY teenz. It should have good visual narration.

I think the meme comes more from how they compose themselves than physical features. They're both estranged and androgynous. They blur gender lines and are both gay icons. Tilda played a Witch and David played a Sorcerer.

They have a lot in common.
>>
>>61673335
That could work, but it would be a tall order to execute in proper style.

they both are talentless hacks

Fuck it, making it my life goal from this point on to make this happen.

So you're saying they're both weirdos?

cate blanchett did a great job as bob dylan, tilda would be even better as bowie
>>
>>61673763
Pretty much.

isn't that the question of the day

Good enough for me, the world needs more unabashed, unashamed nutjobs.

And that weird is good. Don't forget that.

>>61674032
That's quite a stretch on the word weird.
>>
>>61674063
David Bowie and Tilda Swinton are magnificent.
>>
>>61673098
like when cate blanchett played Bob Dylan. I like it.
>>
>>61674899
But better because there is more of a reason to do it. Cate Blanchett was the best Bob Dylan in that movie though.
>>
I want Tilda to play The Gouster

Dane to play Berlin Trillogy

Eddie to play Ziggy

Cara Delevigne to play The Duke
>>
>>61674959
In both performance and part.
>>
>>61674976
Wasn't the Duke part of the Berlin Trilogy?
>>
>>61672492
None. Only a groovy animated film could do Bowie justice, with either silent protagonist Bowie or a very respectfully done imitator. Blur the lines between the man and the fantasy. No Pixar cocky-eyebrow garbage though. Laughing Gnome cameo essential
>>
>>61675115
no, hes the station to station coked out persona.
>>
>>61675277
Oh yeah, the Berlin Trilogy started with Low. Thought it started with Station to Station, for some reason.
>>
>>61672492

none of them even have Heterochromia

>>61672492
none of those bland white motherfuckers. correct answer is Denzel Washington. period.

we just need to give them a good punch in the eye.

just like how bowie got his.

The guy on the left could play Elias in an iceage biopic

ayy who the fuck is that alien on the right?

yeah but nobody wants Iceage biopic
>>
>>61672492
I really hate Eddie Redmayne, so I hope it's not him. Far left could do it, I think. It's amazing what you can do with aging (or anti-aging) effect/makeup nowadays

Dane DeHaan as young Bowie
Tilda Swinton as old Bowie

that's it, fuck Redmayne

I agree. I know the Bob Dylan movie already did this shit, and even the Brian Wilson movie to a lesser extent, but it seems a lot more appropriate for a Bowie movie.
