CALLING all Brummies that happen to hold some sort of resemblance to knackered out old codger Ozzy Osbourne.
The Black Sabbath singer (pictured) is apparently unhappy with the choice to go with a Hollywood actor to play him in the upcoming film documenting his life, from plumbing, to jail, alcoholism and sex, drugs and rock and roll.
Commenting on the matter, Ozzy said, “I don’t want Johnny Depp or someone from the Hobbit films, because Americans can’t do Brum accents. It would be good to get someone from Birmingham to play me.”
Currently in the pipeline for the movie is the aforementioned Johnny Depp, Jack Black and Colin Farrell, however we have to say we agree with Ozzy, so why don’t the film makers save themselves a load of hassle and just walk into a Brummie boozer and pick the first guy they see pissing in the corner of a pub and drinking the finest cider a pound can buy? We think it would be a much more accurate representation of the Prince of Darkness.
