Susan Boyle to star in Weirdest Movie Cast Ever?
Who would have believed it? Two weeks ago Susan Boyle, was an unknown, unemployed middle aged woman from West Lothian who had an uncanny resemblance to Father Ted’s perennial drunk Father Jack.
Now the ‘Hairy Angel’ (that’s the tabloids’ name for her, not ours) is well on the way to being the most viewed person on YouTube with over 100 million views, championed by celebrity twitterers and, if internet rumours are to be believed, set to appear in a movie.
According to The Sun, the 48-year-old singer has been offered a small part in US film Section B by director Darla Rae. The film will also star Cyndi Lauper and Tippi Hedren.
Rae said: “Susan’s real-life story is exactly what the movie is about – chasing your dream no matter what. As I watched her, I felt a connection and realised she would be perfect for one of the roles in Section B.”
Rumours that the movie chronicles the early life of Star Wars’ Chewbacca in a Scottish mining town are yet to be confirmed.
