Happy Mondays - Shaun Ryder Searching For Actor To Play Him In Tv Series

Happy Mondays frontman Shaun Ryder is searching for the perfect actor to play him in a warts-and-all dramatisation of his autobiography.

Bosses at British network Itv are planning to serialise Ryder's best-selling memoir Twisting My Melon, which recounts the rock wildman's craziest moments.

Ryder, who has since kicked his addictions to heroin and crack cocaine, insists he wants to be portrayed as realistically as possible and is involved in the search for the right man for the role.

He tells Britain's The Sun newspaper, "We've got a meeting in a couple of weeks where we start to look at the actors who could play me."

Ryder was previously portrayed by Danny Cunningham in 2002 movie 24 Hour Party People.
