In a recent interview with 95.5 KLOS Dave Grohl revealed who he’d like to play him in a Foo Fighters biopic. His choice of one of the stars of The Shining won’t be surprising to any true fans of the rock legend.
“I’m going for Shelley Duvall. Like, look at Shelley Duvall from The Shining, she’s like,’Get Away From Me! Get Away From Me!’. Like, that’s me. That’s totally me.” He also added that his bandmate Taylor Hawkins should be played by Jack Nicholson – Duvall’s on-screen husband in The Shining.
Grohl has often been compared to Duvall and happily leans into the comparison. However with no plans for a Foo Fighters biopic currently, the casting seems unlikely.
The musician also recently revealed that he would love to play drums for AC/DC saying they are “my last one”. He also joined Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Beck onstage at a political rally encouraging people to vote in the US midterm election.
