But then you remember; Mick Jagger actually wrote many of his own songs, created a unique style, and was in a band with good music.
Still, to play Mick Jagger in a film, all you really need is Mick Jagger's good looks, which Harry Styles does, and is no doubt the reason he is being hunted to play the Rolling Stones frontman in a new film about the making of Exile On Main Street.
According to The Line Of Best Fit, he has secured the part in a film, currently titled Exile On Main Street: A Season In Hell With The Rolling Stones, and set to be directed by Downton Abbey’s Andy Goddard.
This will be Styles’s second major film role; he is currently filming Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk - apparently, his likeness to Jagger was noted on set, thus the offered role.
The report also details a Winter release, but with filming not yet underway, this is looking not entirely likely.
