Ramone's Brother Calls On Depp For Dee Dee
JOEY RAMONE's brother MICKEY LEIGH wants JOHNNY DEPP to play DEE DEE RAMONE in the film adaptation of his new book I SLEPT WITH JOHNNY RAMONE.
Leigh is convinced an unknown should play his late brother in the biopic, which is currently in the hands of producer Rory Rosegarten, but he has a few suggestions for the supporting cast.
He quips, "Maybe Howard Stern could play Joey. It's not up to me so I haven't really thought about it but, just for kicks... they're talking about an unknown... Maybe Adrien Brody - he's a tall skinny guy.
"I think Kevin Bacon would be great to play Johnny Ramone; he's a musician... and maybe Johnny Depp to play Dee Dee if he'd take on a small role."
