The former Take That chart-topping solo singer and legend is making a movie about himself – and of course he’ll play the main character in the upcoming TV series

Robbie Williams has admitted he’ll play himself in the upcoming biopic about his life – but he doesn’t know who will play him in his younger years.
The 48-year-old former Take That star is busy working on the big screen adapting his own life from his teenage years to the success of a boy band and solo star.
The upcoming film is being directed by Australian filmmaker Michael Gracey, who also directed the 2017 musical hit The Greatest Showman.
But when it comes to picking someone to play the man of pop show Robbie, there doesn’t seem to be anyone quite like the Angels singer himself to play the part – at least not in his later years. .

The Sun on Sunday reported that Rob told an audience member Down Under last week: “The point about movies is that whatever is created is a miracle.
“Everything is stuck. It is always, ‘This person says no and this person says yes and this person is offended and this person is not offended enough’. Those are agents and attorneys.
“I’m 97 percent sure it will happen. I don’t know who’s going to play me when I’m young but I know who’s going to play me when I’m older. You are looking at him. ”
Meanwhile, Robbie has previously explained that he is struggling to choose a younger version of himself.
And the insider told the Mirror in March: “Michael and Robbie held top-secret auditions to find a star to play the young Robbie recently.
“They didn’t meet anyone they were confident they could do.
“Robbie was stunned at how difficult the project was. And now he’s starting to worry that it’s never going to make it to the big screen and he’s going to look stupid when he blows it up.”
Elsewhere, Gary Barlow has refuted claims that he will also feature in Rob’s upcoming biopic – which is slated to be titled Better Man.
Excitement flared earlier this month when reports suggested that Gaz had been fired to star in his biopic.
But a rep for the musician told the Mirror that Gary was “just on vacation with his family”, dismissing suggestions that he would star in his former bandmate’s screen project.
Jake Simmance, 24, will play the teenage Gary in the project. His credits include the BBC series Call the Midwife and, more recently, Netflix’s Anatomy of a Scandal.
It is understood that the rest of Take That will be played by Liam Head, Jesse Hyde, and Chase Vollenweider. They were supposed to play Howard Donald, Mark Owen, and Jason Orange respectively.
