Put Down Your Cherry Garcia: There's a Jerry Garcia Biopic in the Works
|Jerry Garcia will be truckin' on over to the big screen -- but we're guessing he won't be bearded in this one|
The late Jerry Garcia that we've all heard of or grown up listening to will not make it to the big screen himself, for obvious reasons. Neither will the persona that we've come to know as Jerry Garcia in his later years.
A Garcia biopic is in the works, produced by Eric Eisner (yes, son of the former Disney head honcho), Albert Berger and Ron Yerxa (who also produced Little Miss Sunshine). But it'll touch upon his early life before joining the band that's made him a household name -- and a delicious Ben & Jerry's ice cream flavor.
Our big question though: What mainstream actor will they pick to play the Grateful Dead frontman? Whoever it is, we hope they don't go crazy like Joaquin Phoenix did after Walk the Line.
