Tommy Chong as Hilly Kristal
First of all, check out the resemblance. Then there’s the fact that both are counterculture icons. And finally, while the voices aren’t an exact match, listen to Kristal talk here and tell us you don’t hear a bit of the slacker drawl.
Charlotte Gainsbourg as Patti Smith
An inspired musician and non-traditional beauty playing another inspired musician and non-traditional beauty? Sounds like the perfect fit to us. And we’re sure Patti would be tickled to be portrayed by the offspring of Serge Gainsbourg.
Adrien Brody as Johnny Thunders
Aside from the obvious resemblance, we Johnny Thunders might well be a complex role — making Adrien Brody the perfect Oscar winner for the job.
Elisha Cuthbert as Debbie Harry
Debbie Harry was all about the open, fresh-faced, wide-eyed, but also sort of icy look. We think Elisha Cuthbert could nail it.
Alexander Arnold as Joey Ramone
As UK Skins’ resident metal kid, Alexander Arnold has the shaggy-haired, leather-jacketed, scowl-sporting rocker down pat. It’s like he’s been training to play Joey Ramone!
