Mark E. Smith of The Fall Wants Brad Pitt To Play Him In A Biopic

December 28, 2012 | Posted by Joseph Lee

In an interview with The Guardian, Mark E. Smith of The Fall revealed he’d like Brad Pitt to play him in a biopic. Here are highlights:

On Sam Riley’s portrayal of him in 2002’s 24 Hour Party People and then going on to play Ian Curtis in 2007’s Transmission: “It’s those film people, like that bloke who played Johnny Cash. It was fucking ridiculous, wasn’t it? They may as well have got the bloke who plays Batman.”

On who he’d like to play him: “That’s the tragedy of it, that would be good, wouldn’t it? Get in the guy out of Fight Club. He’d make a great me.”

On when he plans to retire: “I’m not thinking of it at the moment because the group’s really shit hot. We’re just coming into fruition. Then again, I don’t want to be like Brian Wilson (5). I’m already starting to sit on a chair.”
