Perhaps a biopic of actor/singer Tom Waits with Michael Wincott as Waits?

I would love to see a biopic about Carles Ponzi. I recently read a book about him, and it was an incredible story that should be on the big screen. I would also love to see a biopic about the first black heavy weight champion of the world, Jack Johnson.

Here it is:

I can't believe I didn't realize it was a fake. :( Now I'm disappointed.

This Winter, a movie called Saving Mr. Banks is coming out, and it's about Disney making Mary Poppins. Tom Hanks is playing him. <3

I think that Tom Hanks is a perfect for the role.

Tom Hanks is perfect for every role. <3 But, seriously, my favorite actors playing one of my favorite people ever! I'm so very excited.

He really does kind of look like all those old videos of Walt in his older days. :)

Yeah, I saw pics on the Craig Ferguson show, and it's uncanny!

I don't think he warrants an entire biopic, but Piers Morgan would be interesting; perhaps for a film about CNN, in the vein of Good Night, and Good Luck. I can only imagine one actor playing him: Colin Firth.

Colin Firth would be a good fit.

ellie-jessie-eve - Thanks, he already resembles Piers, anyway, so perhaps with a little makeup, it would work. Piers himself has said that he wants Colin to play him.
