Casting Call: Nirvana
Few bands have made quite the impact that Nirvana did when they exploded onto the scene in the early ’90s. Led by frontman Kurt Cobain and featuring the talents of drummer Dave Grohl and bassist Krist Novoselic, Nirvana revolutionized rock music with their 1991 sophomore album, ‘Nevermind.
But who should play the iconic rockers in a movie? Besides the obvious choice of Macaulay Culkin as Kurt Cobain, Loudwire magazine has come up with picks of their own. Incidentally, Culkin is not their number one choice. Actor Joe Anderson is the spitting image of the late, great Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain. He remains relatively unknown, making him a perfect candidate to play the enigmatic Cobain.
In addition to having similar facial features as Grohl, ‘Napoleon Dynamite’ actor Efren Ramirez can definitely display the musician’s comedic side. So, we say ‘Vote for Pedro’ to play Dave Grohl in the Nirvana movie.
The first qualification to play the 6-foot, 6-inch Krist Novoselic is that you gotta be tall. And at 6 foot, 4 inches, ‘How I Met Your Mother’ actor Jason Segel definitely fits the bill, as he also resembles Novoselic.
Do you agree? Do you have someone else in mind?
