Is Harry Styles Playing Boy George In Upcoming Biopic?

Harry Styles just might be portraying Boy George in a new movie!

During a recent interview, the 58-year-old musician dropped a big hint that the 26-year-old “Watermelon Sugar” crooner could be taking on the role.

“There’s been some really interesting names bandied about. I don’t dare say any! Oh, I don’t know if I should say this,” Boy George told Smooth Radio’s Virtual Coffee Break. “Alright, I’m not going to say who it is, but there’s someone who’s quite a big pop star that’s been rumoured to maybe play me.”

“Not Sam Smith. That’s all I’m going to tell you. It’s somebody younger than me, and it’s somebody who’s a pop star. I can’t say who it is, but I’m intrigued. The name’s been brought up, and I’ve been like, ‘Wow…’” he continued to tease.

One of the interviewers suggested Harry and Boy George giggled and said, “Who knows!”

Boy George has previously said he would love to have Sophie Turner play him, but he said that was just talk.

“It isn’t true, but it was something that came up. There were a lot of things online. I have no say over who gets cast or anything like that. I mean, I don’t really have any say, full stop. I’m just going to sit back and watch!” he added. “More than anything, I just want it to be truthful. I don’t want it to be too much fantasy. I’d like it to be… you know, some truth, so people get an idea of who I am as a person, because there’s so much information out there that’s kind of half-true or a little bit true.”

“I think if it’s done well, it’ll give people more of an insight into who I am as a person, which is not a bad thing,” George said.
