Airborne stunt enthusiast, long-maned billionaire, intergalactic transportation pioneer, recent New Jersey party host — Sir Richard Branson is all of these things and more. As people like him are wont to do, the colorful British industrialist chronicled his rise to colossal success in a memoir that was published in 1998. It is called “Losing My Virginity.”
Now, that over-the-top book title is going to become an over-the-top movie title. We’re about to see high-speed jets, hot-air balloons and Rock ‘n’ Roll bands all come to the big screen.
But how can a single actor embody the man, the myth and the legend that is Sir Richard Branson? Well, the beknighted billionaire has someone in mind. Apparently it’s some dude from this vampire movie or something?
Q: Who would play you in a movie of your life?
A: Robert Pattinson from “Twilight.” He’s English … and he’s young!
When casting gets word of the boss’s pick, there’s no doubt that the guy most famous for playing a vampire will step into the role of the ruthless businessman. Insert bloodsucking joke here!
