  Michael Hutchence Antonio Vivaldi Joan Root

Lead singer of 80’s pop sensation INXS

Baroque composer/priest Antonio Vivaldi

African wildlife conservationist/filmmaker

His/Her Legacy

Had relationships with Kylie Minogue, models Helena Christensen and Paula Yates Had a daughter with Yates named Heavenly Hiraani Tiger Lily Hutchence Found dead at the Ritz in Sydney Australia during his Elegantly Wasted tour Rumoured to have died from Autoerotic Asphyxiation (AEA)

Was a music teacher at a school for the illegitimate daughters of Venice’s courtesans His seminal classic work is “The Four Seasons”

Made acclaimed wildlife films with husband, Alan Root, which featured narrations by stars such as Orson Welles Murdered in her home in Kenya at 69

Star Power

No actors are currently tied to Slide Away as of yet. Blogs have reported that Johnny Depp already declined the role (he’s supposedly in talks to star in a Freddie Mercury biopic instead).

Joseph Fiennes will star as the lead

America’s sweetheart Julia Roberts will star as the lead

Final Score

While we would have loved to see Depp take a stab at this, we think Hayden Christensen (think of the moodiness he achieved with Life as a House) would be pitch perfect.

We can’t wait to see more of the hottie destined for an Oscar who melted our hearts as William Shakespeare in Shakespeare in Love and Sir Robert Dudley in Elizabeth.

This could be Oscar win number two for the Academy Award winning actress of Erin Brockovich
