At last night’s ELLE dinner for “women who make women look good on film (and the men who love us!)”  Vera Farmiga let slip that she'll be playing Christine McVie in the upcoming biopic on Dennis Wilsons life.

"Aaron Eckhart is going to play Dennis Wilson of The Beach Boys and I’ll be playing one of the great loves of Dennis’ life—Christine McVie of Fleetwood Mac, so that will be really fun!”


Aaron Eckhart will star as the legendary Beach Boys drummer Dennis Wilson in Randall Miller & Jody Savin's "The Drummer".  The biopic will concentrate on the last six years of Wilson's life which, according to many, he created some of the best music of his career.

Aaron is a perfect choice to play Dennis. Eckhart is a fine actor and this could prove to be a pivotal role in his career if the movie is done and marketed as it should be. The resemblance is startling as well. I am not familiar with the actress, but it will no doubt be a great opportunity for her as this story should be a great journey on film.

Vera certainly looks the part. Aaron too. I wonder what Christine thinks about someone playing her on the big screen, and what she thinks about the project overall. I know their relationship was quite tumultuous.

I absolutely love Vera Farmiga. She's fantastic on 'Bates Motel' and made 'The Conjuring' a great film! She also looks similar enough to Christine to pull this off.
