From “The Tonight Show” stage to the sound stage.
Jay Leno is set to play legendary television personality Ed Sullivan in “Midas Man,” the upcoming drama about Beatles manager Brian Epstein, Deadline reported.
The British rock band made a plethora of appearances on “The Ed Sullivan Show” throughout the 1960s. In February 1964 alone, the Fab Four stopped by Sullivan’s eponymous variety show on three separate occasions.
“Midas Man” is in production and will chronicle the life and rise to fame of Epstein. Jacob Fortune-Lloyd of “The Queen’s Gambit” will star as the group’s manager alongside Emily Watson, Eddie Marsan and Rosie Day. No word yet on who will be playing the band’s members.
