Who will play Kurt Cobain in the Nirvana biopic? Part Three!
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…
YOU WISH COURTNEY!
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?
