Serkis wants to play Bono

Serkis recently delved into the music world with a portrayal of the Blockheads star Ian Dury in Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll.

And he would love to land a role playing another music icon – Bono.

He tells British music magazine NME, “I could do Bono. Someone will have to write the screenplay.”

Serkis would also relish the chance to play troubled Pogues singer Shane MacGowan. He adds, “Someone also suggested Shane MacGowan to me, that’s not a bad story.”
