James Corden To Play Paul Potts In Opera Singer's Biopic
Last weekend, Corden made a tearful acceptance speech for his Best Actor award at the Tony Awards in the Usa. He beat off fierce competition from Philip Seymour Hoffman, amongst others, to take home the award for his performance in One Man, Two Guvnors. During the speech, he thanked his girlfriend for supporting him. Paul Potts was a phone salesman before he entered the Britain's Got Talent TV show. Following his debut performance on the show in 2007, he became an overnight sensation. The 41 year-old went on to win the contest and eventually sold millions of albums worldwide.
Harvey Weinstein, the legendary film producer is quoted in The Sun as saying "James is a brilliant actor and a wonderful comedian and we're excited to be working with him - and (director) David (Frankel) - on this inspiring true story. Hot off James' Tony win, we can't wait to get started." Rumours have surfaced that Katy Perry may be in the running for the role of Paul's wife.
