Guess who might volunteer to play Susan Boyle in a biopic?

Susan BoyleAccording to the UK Telegraph (and I always have trouble believing anything from the British media, but bear with me), none other than Robin Williams has offered himself up to play Susan Boyle in any planned movie of her life. Apparently, he's been doing impressions of the breakout singer for celebrity friends.

This could very well lead to Robin's second Oscar (his first for a non-supporting role). If he pulls this off, he could be as impressive as Meryl Streep playing Julia Child. Of course, if he can't pull it off, it would look like a sad attempt at repeating Mrs. Doubtfire.

However, unless they start work on the movie tomorrow, this will likely be chalked up as an interesting and amusing rumor. While her story is interesting, Susan Boyle's star has been dimming somewhat and it wouldn't surprise me if she was relegated to Celebrity Big Brother in the near future.

I don't know where the author of this article has been, but Su's star has not dimmed. Not only did she complete an almost month long BGT tour, traveling thousands of miles and some days performing twice, but after the tour ended she began recording her debut album. She has been interviewed by NBC's The Today Show by Meredith Vierera, and she just finished a photoshoot by Harper's Baazar - a beautiful photo layout. She is coming to America mid-November for several concerts in conjunction with releasing her first album. And yes, the Robin Williams thing was a joke. Robin's PR person stated in an article there was not now, nor had there ever been, any truth to it. No, Susan's star has not dimmed. You just haven't been looking!

All they have to do is too use Matt Lucas from Little Britain, he's already done it publicly:

Why would Susan Boyle allow a hairy man portray her on the big screen? http://www.contracthospitalitystaff.com

I loveeeeee Susan Boyle! I think Robin Williams can pull it off greatly! Look @ Mrs. Doubt-fire-he did fabulously! I am all for it.

Not gonna happen. Why would Susan Boyle allow a hairy man portray her on the big screen? I see lawsuits.
