A journey through George Clooney's life.
The father of late singer Amy Winehouse wants George Clooney to play him in a biopic about his daughter.

Mitch Winehouse — who shares the Ocean’s 12 star’s silvery hair colour — is adamant any studio taking on the project should make sure they recruit someone “handsome” for his role.

When asked if the film was still in the works, the former taxi driver said: “I dare say … who’s going to play me, George Clooney? I mean they’ve got to get someone good and handsome. But they’ll probably end up with Ray Winstone or someone like that knowing my luck.”

It had been rumored Lady Gaga could play Amy — who was found dead in her London home in 2011 — in the movie, but while Mitch likes her as a person, he isn’t sure she’s right for the role.

He told reporters in London: “I mean Lady Gaga, if she wants to come and audition for it… I’ve met her parents a number of times, she’s a lovely girl and all this stuff like, prawns on her head, when she goes home she doesn’t wear raw meat on her head.

“Her mum says she puts her sneakers on and her tracksuit and sits on the couch and eats chocolates like everyone else. She’s a nice kid and her parents are just ordinary Italian working class people and she loves her mum and dad and she loves her grandparents.

“She’s the same as Amy – she’s a nice kid, very nice young lady. She still can’t play Amy though.”

How did Amy die? Watch the video below for the findings on her death.
