Reality Flicked In Dylan Bio-Pic

Sunday Times (London), Mar. 21

Bob Dylan has finally given permission to a Hollywood studio to make a film about his life. He will be portrayed by seven actors — one of them a black woman.

Todd Haynes, the Oscar-nominated director, confirmed last week he was searching for a woman who could do justice to the short, white Jewish singer’s “inner blackness”.


It is traditional in films spanning a lifetime for characters to be played by more than one actor, but rare for them to change sex or race. Haynes is considering female actors, including the pop singer Beyonce Knowles, the tennis champion Venus Williams and the television presenter Oprah Winfrey.
