Mike Myers to Play Who? Keith Moon.

by | September 30, 2005 | Comments

A long-gestating project between Roger Daltrey, Nigel Sinclair, and Mike Myers looks like it might be coming back to life sometime soon, according to Variety. The untitled film will focus on the rock band The Who … and Mike Myers will be playing legendary drummer Keith Moon.

"Daltrey and Sinclair have worked on the Moon project on and off for about 10 years, but the film will be on a fast track and a director will be set shortly.

Myers previously flirted with the Moon project several years ago. At the time, he was so busy co-writing and playing four characters in "Austin Powers In Goldmember" that the project never quite came together. He is eager to make it happen now, sources said.

Moon’s penchant for destroying drum sets while bandmate Pete Townshend smashed his guitars helped to forge the Who’s rebellious image. Moon was just as wild offstage, living large and trashing hotel rooms and cars. The lunacy nearly overshadowed an instinctive power drumming skill that fueled the Who. The hard living caught up to Moon, who died in 1978."
