It’s finally official. After years of speculation, NME.com reports that Wayne¹s World and Austin Powers star Mike Myers is set to play The Who’s Keith Moon in the film adaptation of his life. Moon died in 1978 and his former bandmate, frontman Roger Daltrey, hand picked Myers to fill the late drummer¹s role, and he told us the producers had complete faith that he would find the right man. I think they trust me to be true to the character of this man with all his complexities and he was deeply, deeply complex as a person. He was incredibly, incredibly articulate. He was incredibly intelligent and he had an incredible gift of mimicry. I think he had genius qualities as a drummer. The movie now titled, See Me, Feel Me: Keith Moon Naked For Your Pleasure, was green-lit back in 2005. It is now slated for a 2009 release.
