Robin Williams Asked to Play Susan Boyle in a Movie

Robin Williams has been approached for a new movie role…playing a woman! And while he has done it before with Mrs. Doubtfire, we’re sure nothing could prepare him for this!

According to a new report in the Guardian, Williams has been asked to play singing sensation Susan Boyle in a movie about her life. Film executives are planning a film about her rise to stardom after appearing on Britain’s Got Talent.

It helps that Robin is already a big Susan Boyle fan, and has reportedly been practicing his impressions of her and singing “I Dreamed a Dream” to prepare for the role.

He says, "I've been asked if I want to play Susan in the movie. I think she's incredible. That clip of her singing on Britain's Got Talent was extraordinary. So inspiring. It was quite a shock when she began to sing. I saw some other clip of her singing Cry Me A River a few years ago. It was incredible. She's got a really great voice."

We’re not sure how Susan Boyle will react to a man playing the part of her in her biopic, but we think Robin will be fantastic! He’s going to have to start working on those high octave notes!
