Hypothetical: Jaco -the Movie

Discussion in 'Miscellaneous [BG]' started by Peter Squire, Oct 15, 2005.


  1. So if there was going to be a biographical movie made about Jaco, and you got to choose the cast, who would be your picks?

    First of all it's a great idea...It's gonna' be a very dramatic story with a tragic end.
    Somebody should do it but not hollywood, we don't want jaco to become just another a sticky hollywood story.
     
  3. yeah, make it a european art film, then you'll have jaco speaking french or swedish :oops:

    Jacques

    oh and of course:

    I don't know who to cast, but I'd want David Lynch directing it. :D

    can lindsay lohan play jaco? naked?
     
  7. Depp would probably do a pretty good Jaco, Fret. But Ms. Lohan could also prove to be a winner.

    I think Tom Hanks (if he was skinnier) would do a good jaco. He has the voice and the nose (almost).

    Brendan Fraser looks quite a bit like Jaco, whether or not he could accurately portray everyone's favorite manic maniac musician...well who knows.

    Though ultimately, I feel that if such a movie were made, it would be like a VH1 type for-TV production and would use a cast of nonames for the most part, and chances are whoever they'd get to play jaco would be a dead ringer for him.
     
  11. me.

    Oh imagine the threads on here that such a movie would spark.
     
  12. Depp would really get into the role

    Heck, Jaco's own son felix looks quite a bit like him, and he can play the bass pretty well too.
     
  14. FRETLESS PRACTICAL OR HYPE?!?!? FOUR STRINGS PRACTICAL??! OR HYPE?!!? DO I NEED MORE STRINGS?!?!?! or more hype???

    god, i think i'd throw my soda at the screen and dump my popcorn on myself for wasting all that money.

    Rob Shenider as Jaco
    He realises that life as a bass player isint all its cracked up to be.

    Or
    Adam sandeler
    he falls in love with his bass, but then realises that its actually a golden retrever.

    +1 Outstanding player. He was going to be my choice, although I bet Depp would take bass lessons/learn all (or most) of Jaco's tunes. He's a dedicated actor, and willing to research his character until he gets it as accurate as possible.
