This is a no-brainer! Reeve Carney, star of Spider-Man on Broadway and lead singer of the band Carney, has been cast as Jeff Buckley in the “official” bio-pic about the singer’s life. As a big fan of Jeff Buckley’s music, I was dreading the prospect of a movie because the names being thrown around that were in consideration to play Jeff are not singers. I am happy that if a movie has to be made, Reeve Carney who can both sing and act will be in it. It helps that he looks and sounds a lot like Jeff and from what I’ve heard so far, he’ll sing the songs so I am very excited about that.
Not so long ago, I saw Carney perform and Reeve performed two songs by two different legends – Queen and The Beatles! Coincidentally, the banter before the song is something you’d hear at a Jeff Buckley concert so I am excited for the film. Don’t let me down like you usually do Hollywood!
And now, enjoy seeing Reeve Carney sing “Bohemian Rhapsody” by Queen followed by “I Want You (She’s So Heavy)” by The Beatles.
