In an upcoming film, Jonathan Rhys Meyers, best known for his roles in the films Velvet Goldmine, Mission Impossible III, Bend It Like Beckham, Match Point and his television roles as Elvis Presley in the biographical miniseries Elvis, is stepping into the role of The Clash frontman Joe Strummer for the ‘70s-set film London Town.
It appears, however, they cast the wrong actor. Justin Theroux of American Psycho would have been the better choice, in my opinion.
