George Michael Biopic to Feature Theo James

LONDON – Excitement is building over the upcoming George Michael biopic. The British website Mail Online writes, “White Lotus heartthrob Theo James has been tipped to play George Michael in an £85 million biopic about the Wham! singer.”

Theo is a Hellene, and reporters Carololine Graham and James Desborough note that, “Oxford-born James, 38, has become one of Hollywood’s hottest stars thanks to his performance as a philandering husband in the second series of the hit show about the guests and staff at a resort hotel.”

The articles continues: “The actor is favourite to play Michael, who died in 2016, in a movie that has been endorsed by the singer’s family after the success of biopics about Elton John and Queen’s Freddie Mercury. The film, which is in the final stages of development according to insiders, will follow the singer’s career from his Wham! days to his success as a solo artist with hits such as Careless Whisper.”
