With the growing interest in musical biopics like Bohemian Rhapsody and the upcoming Elton John biopic Rocketman, it makes sense that Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl has been thinking about who he’d want to play him if he were to one day get a biopic of his own.
“I’m going for Shelley Duvall,” Grohl said in a recent interview with 95.5 KLOS. “Like, look at Shelley Duvall from The Shining, she’s like, ‘Get Away From Me! Get Away From Me!’ Like, that’s me. That’s totally me.”

Grohl even went on to explain that he thinks bandmate Taylor Hawkins should be played by Duvall’s co-star, Jack Nicholson.
