Rush Wows As Tragic Sellers

OSCAR winner GEOFFREY RUSH is leaving the cast and crew on the PETER SELLERS biopic speechless - because he's the spitting image of the tragic comic.

Even Sellers' biographer ROGER LEWIS admits Rush has done so much research on the British comic he has become him for the purpose of the HBO movie, which also stars CHARLIZE THERON as BRITT EKLAND and EMILY WATSON as Sellers' first wife ANNE HOWE.

Lewis says, "Geoffrey Rush' performance has got OSCARS written all over it. He has studied Sellers and told me that he had read my book three times. Even I haven't read my book three times."

The new movie is based on Lewis' bestselling biography THE LIFE + DEATH OF PETER SELLERS.
