Amy Winehouse’s father Mitch wants George Clooney to play him in an Amy biopic.
Mitch insists a Hollywood studio should consider taking on the film project following his daughter’s untimely death last year, and he wants someone “good and handsome” to play him in the movie.
When asked if a film is in the pipeline, he told BANG Showbiz: “I dare say… Who’s going to play me, George Clooney? I mean they’ve got to get someone good and handsome. But they’ll probably end up with Ray Winstone or someone like that knowing my luck.”
It was previously rumoured Lady Gaga would play the part of Amy and while Mitch is unsure if the singer is right for the part, he would be happy for her to audition.
He said: “I mean Lady Gaga, if she wants to come and audition for it… I’ve met her parents a number of times, she’s a lovely girl and all this stuff like, prawns on her head, when she goes home she doesn’t wear raw meat on her head.
“Her mum says she puts her sneakers on and her tracksuit and sits on the couch and eats chocolates like everyone else. She’s a nice kid and her parents are just ordinary Italian working class people and she loves her mum and dad and she loves her grandparents.
“She’s the same as Amy - she’s a nice kid, very nice young lady. She still can’t play Amy though.”
