Elton John wants Justin Timberlake to play him on the silver screen!
The 64-year-old singer told the Los Angeles Times that Timberlake, 30, is his "number one" pick to star in a biopic about his life.
"He played me before in a David LaChapelle video of 'Rocket Man' and it was superb," John continued. (Rolling Stone pointed out that Timberlake actually appeared as John in a video for the song "This Train Don’t Stop There Anymore.")Slideshow: Justin Timberlake (on this page)

So what kind of film is John planning to make about his life? "It's going to be a surreal look at my life, and not just a factual look at my life, more in the manner of a 'Moulin Rouge,'" he told the Los Angeles Times. "I just don't want it to be a normal biopic because my life hasn't been like that. And it only goes up to when I go into rehab in 1990. It starts with me going into rehab and ends when I come out."
John added that he'd be "making an announcement about (the film) very, very soon" and already has a director on board. "It's just going to be a matter of getting the script exactly the way we want it ... then we'll start trying to cast and plan."
