Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne have given fans an update on the planned biopic about their life and romance. 

News of the biopic, with Sony Pictures and Polygram, came out back in 2021. In the latest episode of The Osbournes Podcastthey reveal that it’s still got a long way to go. 

“By the time they finish this film, I’ll be dead. I wanna be alive to f***** see it,” the 75-year-old Ozzy says, with Sharon adding, “Movies take forever to make. Forever.”

When they started discussing who they think should play them in the film, Sharon’s top choices included Florence Pugh and “the little girl from Game of Thrones,” referring to Maisie Williams 

While Ozzy didn’t chime in with who he wants to play him, son Jack Osbourne said he’d love to see Barry star Bill Hader as his dad, to which Ozzy asked, “Who’s Bill Hader?”  

After being shown a picture of the former SNL star, Ozzy wasn’t convinced, simply saying, “F*** off,” but Sharon noted, “I think he’d be brilliant.”

Daughter Kelly Osbourne doesn’t agree, saying, “I think dad needs to be played by an unknown actor that is very good. I don’t think there’s anybody you can think of now that would be able to do it.”

Meanwhile, Sharon, currently a contestant on Celebrity Big Brother in the U.K., revealed on the show that Ozzy “was stoned on every episode” of their MTV series The Osbournes.

“He was never sober,” she said, according to NME. “He’s never seen it. Doesn’t wanna see it. And he never watched one episode.”
