For those of you who don't subscribe to my eppylover journal, here's a cross-post which is very FBM-related:

Could John Simm play Brian Epstein?

Look at this [ interview video ] which also includes a clip of his performance in Life On Mars ~

We're following the action at The Fifth Beatle Discussion Forum

Wow. He looks like he could actually physically pull it off. Vocally, I don't know. I'm not familiar enough with him.

But cool anyway. :)

Van seems to think, from being familiar with both of his roles, that Simm gives off a VERY strong Eppy-essence at times. Not even on purpose.

And from what little I watched in that interview and film clip, Simm tends to be Brian-ish with some of his facial expressions, too.

He'd have to pull off that very individualized upper-crusty accent and tone of voice, though. I would suggest LOTS of work with tape recorder and Brian audios!

But...
If Peter Brown could be often mistaken for Brian over the phone, then there's hope for a good actor, I would guess.
