Who can hold a candle to Elton John?
While Scottish actor James McAvoy is rumored to be the frontrunner to play Sir Elton, we’ve got some other ideas for the role – especially when it comes to slipping in to John’s glamorous (and spangly) ’70s wardrobe.
On our list: comic actor David Cross (of Arrested Development); The League’s Paul Scheer, who more than bares a passing resemblance to the ’70s-era star; Mike Myers, who, apart from being a comedy star, is musically-inclined; and Scottish star Ewan McGregor who’s already posed as a glam rocker in Todd Haynes’s Velvet Goldmine.
