Keith Moon Film Role Sought By Actor Jeremy Piven
'Entourage' star Jeremy Piven has revealed that he would love to portray former Who drummer Keith Moon in a movie someday. Clearly Moon, who would have been 65 years old yesterday, has a legacy that still looms large 33 years after his death.
Piven has been seen in a variety of roles in both movies and television through the years. You might know him best for his role as perpetually stressed-out and overbooked agent Ari Gold on ‘Entourage,’ while we love him in the B-movie classic ‘PCU’ as James ‘Droz’ Andrew.
Even with all he's accomplished, there’s some unconquered acting territory that Piven would be thrilled to tackle. As he tells Fox News: “Remember the drummer from The Who, Keith Moon? I’d love to play the Keith Moon story.”
Piven can currently be seen on the big screen in the latest ‘Spy Kids’ movie. Meanwhile, the surviving members of the Who are plotting a couple of exciting projects for the near future. A ‘Quadrophenia’ box set will hit stores in November, and the group will tour in 2012 to support the new expanded release.
So, would Piven have the goods to pull off a worthy Keith Moon? What do you think?
