I have a fond place in my heart for Iggy Pop & The Stooges. Hell, there's a Canadian out there in the world who has my cell number listed as "Funhouse." But that's another story entirely. Iggy Pop is a ropey maniac of a whirling dervish and it cracks me up that this guy is around my mom's age and still not content with wearing a shirt while out in public. That and it seems as if he's got the most inspired idea regarding Lindsay Lohan that anyone has talked about recently.
Elijah Wood, formerly assumed to be playing the Popster in a documentary to be directed by Jim Jarmusch, has been forced to drop out of the production due to scheduling conflicts with other projects. Pop harbors him no ill will and made it clear that he's not dead yet but still would like to be around to watch a movie about the history of his band.
When asked who he thought would be the best replacement for Wood in the role, Iggy was sincere and enthusiastic with his reply. "If somebody did want to make a biopic of me I think they should get Lindsay Lohan actually. She looks like me and she's the only one with enough attitude too. They could tape her boobs up or something. She's been in jail at the right age and everything so I thought she could do it."
And you know what? I think that could totally work.
