Boy George Wants Sophie Tuner to Play Him in a Biopic

Like seemingly every 20th Century British pop icon these days, it was recently announced that a film of Boy George’s life is in development. According to BuzzFeed, the musician recently addressed the project during an Australian radio interview, and revealed that <i>Game of Thrones</i> star Sophie Turner is his top pick to play him. “I think that will upset people, which I quite like. [People saying] ‘Oh she can’t play you, she’s a woman.’ But, you know, when I was 17 I would have loved to be her. That was the ambition!” Turner got wind of the talk, and responded on Twitter, writing, “I’m SO down @BoyGeorge.” Somebody make this happen!
