Adele To Play Dusty Springfield In New Major Movie Biopic!

She has the vocal chops, but won't she need to slim down for the role?

Nicole Kidman, Kristin Chenoweth, Adele.

Just get Carey Mulligan to lipsync.

God knows she looks like her.

I could see Downton/Game Of Thrones' Rose Leslie as Dusty. She has a wider face but a similarly strong jaw.

I'd prefer a Dusty mini-series or a BBC TV movie.

Years ago Bette Midler would have been really great as Dusty.

I think it's a great, inspired choice. Dusty Springfield wasn't all that slim anyway.

Dusty didn't get fat until she moved to LA, came out as a dyke, and chased Billie Jean King all over the world for 10 years.

Adele is perfect to play and SING Springfield. She would have to lose some weight.

They'll probably just make her hair bigger.

R6, not really.

Adele told Anderson Cooper that she had a "vagina in her throat". I'm guessing Dusty did too.

Adele is far more beautiful than Springfield, so yeah bigger hair, less makeup and losing 30 lbs should do.

She already has an Oscar and Grammys, but it is funny that so many view her only as a fat and over-rated singer. She is only fat. Adele turned out two of the best albums of the last six years, both before she was 23 years old. It is pretty obvious that she can act well enough for a competently directed biopic.

Adele will be the first modern performer to EGOT. Not only out of ambition, she just has what it takes to conquer all art forms. I never get why others can't see this. She is not a beauty queen. But she has a beautiful face, a strong sense of herself and some kind of throwback sound and look combined with the most modern of personal attitude. Her star ain't dimming anytime soon.
