Serge Pizzorno to play Jamie Vardy in movie about Leicester City striker's life? Surely a no-brainer

Rumours are flying around that a Jamie Vardy movie is in the pipeline.

It has been reported in recent weeks and months that the miraculous season Jamie Vardy is having with Leicester City might soon be made into a Hollywood film.

That created a buzz over who should play Vardy in a film about his life. 90min reported that the man himself had tipped former player turned thespian Vinnie Jones to play the lead role.

Other names that have been mentioned as potential candidates include One Direction band member Louis Tomlinson as well as big name Hollywood star Zac Efron.

But surely there is only one man for the job?

Kasabian guitarist and die-hard Leicester fan Serge Pizzorno.

The 35-year-old musician looks young for his age so could easily play the 29-year-old striker - although he would have to cut off his trademark long locks.

In fact, growing up he wanted to be centre-forward for Leicester City - this would be the perfect opportunity to relive that dream.

He also has the football ability. Fans will be well aware of his excellence in various charity games over the years and he famously did this on Soccer AM:

Or this from Soccer Aid 2012:

He recently made his acting debut, in a cameo as a 90s rave DJ in This Is England 90, so the acting ability might be coming on. Meanwhile, he has certainly pulled off the odd decent performance in some of Kasabian's impressive music videos.

It would be the people's choice and a great option for this rumoured movie venture.
