Speaking to Australia’s Triple J Radio recently, Iggy Pop discussed a biopic that was in the works with Elijah Wood attached to star as the Godfather of Punk. Suffice to say, the project remains indefinitely shelved as Pop has said on multiple occasions that he isn’t on board to participate in an extensive promo campaign (i.e. “jump out of cakes and do promotional things”). While Pop supports a “very artistic” Stooges documentary helmed by friend and past collaborator Jim Jarmusch, he doesn’t mince words regarding his interest in a film solely about his life: “They can wait for me to be dead.” And now for provocative Iggy quote #163,721:
If somebody did want to make a biopic of me I think they should get Lindsay Lohan actually. She looks like me and she’s the only one with enough attitude too. They could tape her boobs up or something. She’s been in jail at the right age and everything so I thought she could do it.
Sorry, Frodo. You’re just too well-adjusted to play the Iguana.
