May 31 can’t arrive soon enough. I’ve been chomping at the bit to see this biopic ever since it was announced. Even when Justin Timberlake was reportedly in the mix to play Elton John. That never happened and instead Taron Egerton was cast to play the legendary singer. Better choice if you ask me.
Joining Egerton in Rocketman are Jamie Bell, Gemma Jones, Bryce Dallas Howard and Richard Madden. Speaking of Madden, can’t wait to see his ‘quite physical‘ love scenes with Egerton. Hot, hot, hot!!!
Paramount Pictures recently released a behind-the-scenes featurette of Rocketman. In the clip, Egerton and the team behind the flick discuss bringing the music of Elton to the big screen. There’s even snippets of Taron singing.
The 29-year-old British actor has a sensational voice. Even Elton agrees. Reportedly, he said he hasn’t heard anyone sing his songs better than Taron. Watch the clip below to see if you echo Elton’s sentiment.
