Irish unknown to play John Lennon...

An Irish singer and Beatle fanatic has been chosen to play John Lennon in a film about his life. The 23 year old Dublin star Philip McQuillan has been chosen after a worldwide search to find an actor and singer to play Lennon in the 3m movie by American broadcasting giants NBC. Philip from Glasnevin will star in the film called "In His Life-The John Lennon Story" which is being filmed on location in Liverpool from next week.

The film will also include scenes shot in the house in Liverpool where Lennon grew up. Speaking to the Irish Independent newspaper executive producer Michael O'Hara said "We looked at over 300 John Lennon's all over Ireland, England, New York and Los Angeles and even put our feelers in Australia but we just couldn't find the right fit."

"We wanted someone with the charisma of Lennon as a performer who can act and with the help of hair and make up artists give the illusion of looking like him but it was becoming an impossible task until Philip contacted us."

Star Trek's David Carson is directing the film which is based on Lennon's early years from when he picked up his first guitar to when the Beatles flew to America. Philip's mother Noreen said that the young star lived for Lennon and was overjoyed at getting to play his idol.
