One Direction’s premiere album has been out scant two months (debuting at #1 no less), and due to their mammoth success, the group is already making plans for their 2013 summer tour. Yes, 2013. As in next summer. More than a full calendar year away. Clearly conquering the music industry, it seems one Directioner might be making moves to cross over into film. According to, heartthrob Harry Styles may be thinking about auditioning to play Mick Jagger in an upcoming Rolling Stones biopic. Swoonworthy stage appeal aside, there is definitely a physical likeness there, but the role of Mick Jagger would be as much about embodying the legend’s character as confidently carrying Mick’s unmistakable steez. Do we think Harry can do it?

We already know that Styles has the statement blazer and swoopy bedhead on lock, but the film, which is reported to explore Jagger’s relationship with fellow Stone, Keith Richards during their work on Exile On Main St, would find Harry playing a young, early ’70s era Mick. That means COLOR, some mock turtlenecks, and a zany print or two. Judging from 1D’s Saturday Night Live stint, Harry should be totally fine. He just has to land/audition for the part first!
