Actor Dustin Hoffman is so impressed with the life story of British chef
Jamie Oliver, he wants to make a movie about him.
The OSCAR-winning RAIN MAN star met with the kitchen maestro on American
TV show TODAY yesterday morning (16OCT03), where he - along with hosts KATIE
COURIC, Matt Lauer and ANN CURRY - learned how to make dessert favourite
And in the midst of making a playful mess in the studio kitchen, Hoffman
spoke about his own personal chef at his New York home, telling Oliver, "He
read your book three years ago and he told me that you'd make a great film, but
somebody got the rights. Who's gonna play you?"
Although Oliver claimed to have no knowledge of how the deal was
progressing, the exchange prompted an excited Couric to quip, "This is like a
business deal going on here - this is exciting."
