Ozzy Osbourne wants Johnny Depp to play him in film

Friday January 29, 2010

Accurately reflecting the quirky characteristics of rocker Ozzy Osbourne would be a difficult task for any actor.

Not for Johnny Depp though, according to the 61-year-old singer.

Ozzy has revealed he thinks the Pirates actor would be the perfect choice to play him in a forthcoming movie about his life.

"I've thought about Johnny Depp. He's one of the few actors who knows about rock 'n' roll who does a really good English accent," Ozzy says.

"People are working on scripts right now," he says of the project, provisonally titled, I am Ozzy.
