Oasis' Liam Gallagher says Mr Bean Should Play Noel Gallagher in Biopic

Oasis' Liam Gallagher says Mr Bean Should Play Noel Gallagher in Biopic

Former Oasis and Beady Eye frontman Liam Gallagher has had a pop at older brother Noel, because that's what the Gallagher brothers do now.

When asked about who should portray Noel in a biopic of the pair on Absolute Radio, the 45-year-old suggested Rowan Atkinson of Black Adder, Johnny English and Mr Bean fame.

"Mr. Bean for Noel, because he's annoying, isn't he? You just want to punch his fucking head in and be like, 'Stop fucking about mate,'" said Liam.

As for who would play him in a film, Liam suggested his affable, happy-go-lucky mate Rhys Ifans, arguing that the 6"1 blonde-haired actor would be ideal to play the moody, dark-haired, 5"8 former Oasis frontman. Elaborating on his choice, Liam said that Ifans was "a bit out there", and said "I don't wanna go down the sexy hunky route, so none of that Tom Hardy nonsense for me. Rhys Ifans would be good for me"

Richard Keys has yet to rule himself out.

Liam recently told NME about his upcoming gig in Finsbury Park, suggesting that grime star Skepta should be his support act. "It can't all be 90s stuff, man. We've got to mix it up a bit. I'd like to get Skepta playing, have something a bit different", he said.

The Gallagher brothers are no strangers to a fight. Their relationship was famously fractious throughout Oasis' existence, with numerous stories of punch ups and fall outs, and the brothers haven't got on well since the band finally split in 2009.

Gallagher Jr. is currently touring the arse off his new album, As You Were, including appearances in Brighton, Cardiff, hometown Manchester and London's Finsbury Park.
