It's bad enough that there has been talks about an upcoming movie about Susan Boyle, it's even worse that the person who is asked to play her is Robin Williams! Now, Mrs Doubtfire was hilarious, but I'm not sure a remake of something similar - much less if it's about Susan Boyle - is such a smart move.
Robin Williams has reportedly revealed that he has been asked to play Susan Boyle in a biopic of the singer. He told the Daily Star: "I've been asked if I want to play Susan in the movie. I think she's incredible. That clip of her singing on Britain's Got Talent was extraordinary. So inspiring. It was quite a schosk when she began to sing." He continued: "I saw some other clip of her singing "Cry Me a River" a few years ago. It was incredible. She's got a really great voice."
But apparently, not great enough a voice to win a competition. I mean, come on, what's the movie going to be about anyway? How Susan Boyle was plain, old and unattractive but managed to stun audience into thinking she has a brilliant voice just because she can sing a bit? Besides, we all know what the end is going to be like already.
