Blondie star Debbie Harry has given her seal of approval to Malin Akerman portraying her on the big screen in upcoming movie Cbgb.
The Watchmen star will portray the Call Me singer in the Hilly Kristal biopic, and she recently admitted it's a role she thought she could only dream of playing.
She says, "I love Debbie Harry, and Blondie. It's so funny, we have in our bathroom - I did a whole collage on the wall of just musicians that my husband and I love - because our bathroom sucks and I had to make it look nice, so I have five pictures of Debbie Harry in that collage. It's amazing; it's like a vision board almost!"
And the veteran rocker reveals she is delighted with Akerman's casting, alongside Taylor Hawkins, Sting's actress daughter Mickey Sumner, and Alan Rickman as the New York venue boss.
Harry tells New York Post gossip colum Page Six, "I haven't met her yet, but I think she is fabulous. I hope she has a lot of fun doing it. I hope she has more fun than I had (at the time)."
The Blondie star is not involved with the project, but admits she is open to consulting on the film: "They haven't offered me any money, so we'll see."
