Five Biopics Cinemablend Actually Wants To See

CinemaBlend says

This weekend sees the wide release of J. Edgar, Clint Eastwood's attempt to tell the life story of one of the 20th century's most important people-- an attempt that didn't work out so well if you ask some people. But the biopic, as much as it's a genre that can turn boring and preachy, is also the opportunity to tell the life stories of a lot of really fascinating people. So even though this weekend's biopic effort turned out kind of dull, we're not ready to give up! Here are five more people who are totally worthy of their own life stories being told onscreen, and why it's high time they get their chance. From baseball players to Presidents to a really crazy Prohibitionist, here are five "based on a true story" movies we're still looking for.

George Washington would probably make for a pretty awesome movie. I'm not so sure who I'd want to watch a biopic of to be perfectly honest. The only people I can think of are musicians because they typically lead very colorful lives with all the sex, drugs, booze and scandals (here's looking at Motley Crue and Ozzy).

Funny you mention that. I listen to Nikki Sixx's radio at work often and he's mentioned possibly wanting to do a biopic before now that he's done a book.

His book the Heroin Diaries is freakin incredible. The soundtrack he did with Sixx AM was equally amazing. I'm a huge Crue fan. Knowing that Motley was the MOST decadent band ever makes them even that much more interesting.
