Irishman Farrell is the favourite to land the part in a planned biopic, but SHALLOW HAL star Black is convinced he's a better choice - and he went on Sharon's American chat show to tell her.
Appearing on Friday's (10SEP03) SHARON OSBOURNE SHOW, the comic said, "Ozzy has been a huge influence on me and I've been tracking the Ozzy movie and I know that you're thinking about going with some Irish dude. I am saying bad call.
"I am Ozzy, if anyone's Ozzy. I am Ozzy because Colin's a good looking dude, he's got the right attitude, but he doesn't know the rock.
"Before you cast him let's have a head to head rock off or something."
Sharon was so impressed she practically offered Black the job on the spot.
She giggled, "Ozzy is watching in Boston. I think you've got a deal."13/10/2003 02:45
