In a recent interview with the Guardian, Denzel Washington let loose that he might be in line to star in a musician biopic. Apparently, he's been mulling over starring as Thelonious Monk in a biopic of the famed jazz pianist. Apparently, it's not it stone, but he's been approached, and he keeps talking about it, so it's maybe going to happen.
"I'm talking about it more, so maybe I'm talking myself into it," he says.
So there you have it! Monk would be a good subject, since dude had a wild life full of booze and was sponsored by a real-life baroness throughout most of his career. [Vulture]
