I don't know if you've heard, but there is a lot of talk lately about a biography-movie about Kurt Cobain in development- there's a lot of talk because Rob Pattinson (yes, the Twilight guy) is allegedly a candidate to play Cobain. I'm kind of a Nirvana fan but I'm really starting to think the music is way overplayed on the radio (those "alternative rock stations) and undermining some of the special-ness of the band. I'm also a fan or Rob, mainly just because I have a crush on him, but I think it's not a great idea to cast him for this role (if you ask me, I think they should find some lesser-known actor that's shown talent in indie films). Anyways, do you like "biopics"? Maybe not necessarily those about musicians (e.g. Walk The Line, The Runaways, Ray), but about politicians or human rights activists, like Milk, Invictus or Charlie Wilson's War? I like to watch them from time to time; they often trigger a lot of thought in me about history and society.
