awe hell no.........it would be unwatchable no matter who it is. Perhaps in 10 years CGI Prince would nail it, but beyond that....awe hell no

Don't act like it wouldn't be a breakthrough role. Besides - turn off the auto tune and the girl can sang.

Stop it. Just stop it. And never bring this up again.

Well excuse me! The joke is a Prince reference, obviously went way over your head. [Snip - luv4u]

So funny....ok what drum beat is that, cause Prince clearly programmed it, but I don't recognize the song. Perhaps something to one of the 300 tracks sheila said he did with her.

Not a bad choice. I tried to copy a gif but it didn't work.

Jaden Smith? Are you nuts?!?! That dude can't act his way out of the bathroom.

But this has been discussed a bit, just days after his death: http://prince.org/msg/7/424502

This experience will cover courtship, sex, commitment, fetishes, loneliness, vindication, love, and hate.

I can't even go there, but I always thought Prince should have played Hendrix.

Why do you want to know? Who do you work for?
I asked Prince what he was planning to do. He told me , I'm going to look for the ladder. I asked him what that meant. All he said was, sometimes it snows in April. - book D.M.S.R.

Relax. Nobody's playing P in a movie and doing it justice any time soon. Period. Point blank. End of story.

There will be a P biopic, trust me... there's money to be made. lol

Think they'd have to cast an unknown who looks like him. Remember that young man Wylie Draper, who played MJ in the tv movie?

I see this happen pretty often, but I'm always confused as to why a certain portion of people seem to go in their mind from thinking MJ to thinking P. I don't understand that thought leap. They couldn't be more different in so many ways.

If I had creative control over a project chronicling P, the very last person I would cast would be someone capable of portraying MJ.

It's like comparing doors to Pepsi to Coke.

I don't know if you're talking to me or LBrent but you've taken it too far now. Reported.

He was good as MJ. I just found out a few years ago he died back in the mid-90s.
