Get ready, people, because Harry Styles may be heading back to the big screen! That’s right, Boy George just dropped a major hint that the One Direction member is in talks to play him in an upcoming biopic, and we’re seriously freaking out over the possibility.
For those who missed it, there was previously speculation that Sophie Turner or Sam Smith might play the legendary fashion designer in the new movie. But while speaking to Smooth Radio, he shut these rumors down.
“It isn’t true, but it was something that came up,” he explained when asked if the Game of Thrones actress or the “Stay With Me” singer were being looked at for the role. “There were a lot of things online. I have no say over who gets cast or anything like that. I mean, I don’t really have any say, full stop. I’m just going to sit back and watch! More than anything, I just want it to be truthful. I don’t want it to be too much fantasy. I’d like it to be… you know, some truth, so people get an idea of who I am as a person, because there’s so much information out there that’s kind of half-true or a little bit true. I think if it’s done well, it’ll give people more of an insight into who I am as a person, which is not a bad thing.”
“There’s been some really interesting names bandied about. I don’t dare say any! Oh, I don’t know if I should say this. Alright, I’m not going to say who it is, but there’s someone who’s quite a big pop star that’s been rumored to maybe play me,” the singer and songwriter continued. “Not Sam Smith. That’s all I’m going to tell you. It’s somebody younger than me, and it’s somebody who’s a pop star. I can’t say who it is, but I’m intrigued. The name’s been brought up, and I’ve been like, ‘Wow.'”
But when the talk show host asked if it was Harry, his response quickly sent the internet into a frenzy.
“Who knows!” he said with a mysterious giggle.
OMG. As fans know, the 26-year-old “Sign of the Times” singer made his acting debut back in 2017, when he starred in the movie Dunkirk. He was also considered for the role of Prince Eric in Disney’s upcoming live-action remake of The Little Mermaid, but ultimately turned it down so that he could focus on his music.
