Who will play Kurt Cobain in the Nirvana biopic? Part Three!


CelebStalk has already posted more than once on the Kurt Cobain biopic film and just who might be cast as grunge rocker Kurt Cobain and his wife Courtney Love.

The film is still in the earliest stages and has already caused quite a bit of controversy. Cobain’s widow Courtney Love has shown her distaste for the idea of casting Robert Pattinson, apparently because she can’t separate the real Robert Pattinson in her mind from his role as Edward Cullen in the Twilight Saga. She infamously called the idea “stupid” and “wrong” prompting Robert Pattinson to call her a “dick” in reponse which we think is AWESOME!

Maybe Love is just pissed because her attempt to pimp daughter Francess Bean out to Pattinson after the release of the first Twilight film elicited no response from the brooding Brit?  Hhmmmm…

Regardless, the names now most commonly heard in association with the roles of Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love are Ryan Gosling (F*&K yeah! Ryan Gosling!) and Scarlett Johansson.

Since Courtney Love has been so vocal about casting conjectures in the past, what does she think about Ryan Gosling as Kurt and Scarlett Johansson as herself? Apparently she’s all for both!

We think that Ryan Gosling would make a great Cobain. But come on Courtney? Scarjo? Yeah, she’d be awesome because she’s got loads of talent….but um….let’s just say even after all that plastic surgery Love has had…


What do you think CelebStalkers? Is Ryan Gosling a good pick to play the tormented Kurt Cobain?

What do you think of Scarlett Johansson playing Courtney Love?

Who would YOU like to see play the pair?

  1. I think Ryan would make a good Kurt Cobain, as for Scarlett Johanson, I don’t think she’d be right for the role of Courtney Love. I think she’s too pretty. An actress who I feel would be a better pick would be Amanda Seyfried or better yet, Taylor Momsen. Momsen definitely has Courtney’s style down. Another good actor who could play Kurt is Joe Anderson. He even looks like him!

    Kirt wasn’t a pretty boy. Ryan Gosling cares way to much on what people think. He is to into him self he looks nothing like Mr. Cobain I mean who would play Eddie Vedder Justin Timberlake I mean come on man. Kirt HATED fake people like those two. Mis Love is just a media Hore now. Back in the 90’s she was cool throwing shoes at Madonna. But now KIRT JUST ROLLED OVER IN HIS GRAVE. I hope he comes back as a Zombie and Eats their brains the makers of that flim in closing if your a REAL FAN OF NIRVANA. YOU WILL NOT SEE THIS FLIM WHEN IT COMES OUT LET KIRT REST IN PEACE

  4. I need to play Kurt Cobain. I was a Nirvana/Kurt Cobain fanatic for years, plus I can play all Nirvana songs and sing like him.
