Can you think of anyone’s face who you’d like to see enlarged on a movie screen than Pete Doherty? Your dreams have come true, because he’s been cast in a period drama. Says Celebrity Fix,
Brave producers have cast the drug-addled muso in an adaptation of the French novel La Confession d’un Enfant du Siècle playing the womanising poet Alfred de Musset alongside Charlotte Gainsbourg as the female lead.
I suppose if you wanted someone to authentically look the part of a French citizen in the 1800′s, then you could do no better than Pete Doherty. Infrequent bathing? Check. Body odor? Check. Bad teeth? Check. A pale, diseased-looking appearance? Check check check. I’m only hoping that they have someone on standby to douse Charlotte Gainsbourg’s mouth with Listerine and one of those decontamination scrub-downs when she has to do a love scene with him.
