LA Times suggests Robert Pattinson, Xavier Samuel for Rolling Stones biopic
The LA Times is doing some casting suggestions for Mick Jagger and Keith Richards for a Rolling Stones biopic. See their suggestions for Keith (Rob) and Mick (Xavier) and other choices here.
When the Rolling Stones guitarist was working on “Exile,” he was recording in a big basement and not seeing much direct sunlight, so a pale, vampiric actor such as Robert Pattinson might be a good, safe choice.
Certainly this casting would please the ladies (but depress the Stones fans).
The magnetic Australian actor is best known for his role in “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse” and at a certain angle is a ringer for Jagger.
And since Xavier Samuel proved in “Eclipse” that he’s a good fighter, he’d be able to accurately capture the tension between Jagger and Richards.
