Waaay too short. Then again I have no idea how tall Johnny Depp is.
Hey everyone, there has been a rumour around about a film about Jaco's life, but seems that it is coming together. There is a you tube type of audition, I heard Journey found their new singer this way, was all over the news, anyways thought I would bring it up, I cant audition, dont look like Jaco and certainly can't play like him!
oh go to youtube
find jaco the movie
It's been said a few times, but if Chris Kattan got into Jaco's getup and had a fretless jazz bass thrown on, he'd be as close to Jaco as I can think of. But then again.....
NO NO, TOO SEXY!
Kattan doesn't have the acting skills to play Jaco. Johnny Depp does and Heath Ledger did. Depp actually plays bass and looks like him.
You want a bunch of Pirates of the Caribbean fans to love jaco ONLY because of Depp?
I'm okay with that, strangely.
I just hope a movie about him would focus on his musical genius, but that's not good film, apparently. In stead expect a short montage of footage at gigs, (perhaps while Portrait of Tracy plays) and about an hour and fifteen minutes of footage of him decompensating and vomiting in the park, driving through cities in Forida from the backseat while naked and other famous stupidities that he may or may not actually have committed. And then of course a really REALLY gratuitously long re-enactment of the beaating that killed him.
I really hope I'm wrong.
I'm assuming that there is no thought of using Jack Black in the Jaco role. I mean, he did play McCartney in "Walking Hard".
I'm Paul McCartney of the Beatles
It's funny that this should come up. My guitar player and I were talking about this the other day. Not so much as a reality, but just who would be a good choices (lookswise) to play certain musicians in films about their lives. I don't think we really came up with anybody for Jaco that was as close as Chris Kattan.
On the other hand, we both thought James Franco (of Spiderman fame) would make a pretty good Jeff Buckley.
At this point, Jeff Berlin would need to drop 50lbs to play himself in the movie.
I just spat jim beam all over my keyboard, well played sir!
You know who I think COULD do it? Aesthetically matthew lillard always reminded me of Jaco every time I saw him as shaggy...
Thema is hotter though
Just wait 'till she plays Portrait of Travis.
I would think Depp looks more like Les Claypool than Jaco.
i really think johnny depp could do it better than anyone else.
then again if they need some hand doubles i know every note the man ever played on a record.. i can dream cant i..
#1. i dont believe a movie will ever be made.
#2. i think that if it is to be made, James Franco should be taught to play bass and play the roll.
he reminds me of jaco when he has long hair.
NOTE, IMAGE IS VERY LARGE!
Could you imagine that call?
"hey...we know you don't play bass, but you have 3 months to be the world's greatest bass player, is that cool?"
