Following almost certainly untrue rumours that One Direction’s Harry Styles was being lined up for a solo career, now it’s being rumoured that the boy band singer is being considered for the role of Mick Jagger in a new movie about the strained relationship between the Rolling Stones frontman and his bandmate and creative collaborator Keith Richards.

Styles is seemingly being considered for the Stones biopic because he and Mick have similar haircuts, which would certainly save on the wigs budget.

Says a source to The People: “Harry on stage can pass as a dead ringer for Jagger. If he can transform this image into a movie role then he’s going to be a serious candidate to get the part. The signs are so far good”.

Of course a gruelling movie schedule could play havoc with any touring or recording plans over in the One Direction camp, which said source acknowledged: “The film is going to be a lot of work and very demanding. If Harry takes the part it will lead to concerns about his involvement with One Direction. The band is his main priority but it is flattering to have so much interest from such senior people in the film industry – he couldn’t miss this opportunity”.

So, there you go. Elsewhere in Styles news, he’s apparently now dating Emma Atack, who played Charlotte Hinchcliffe in ‘The Inbetweeners’. According to Metro, when One Direction first rose to fame on ‘X-Factor’, Atack said on Twitter: “Does Harry from One Direction HAVE to be sixteen?! Let’s pretend he’s eighteen at least! Then there would only be One Direction he would be going… to the bedroom!”
