jack black would be a disaster! Tough call on who should play JG; I think using a relative "unknown" might be better for this type of role, let the magic of JG shine through without the ego of a big name, but who knows?

They were talking about Jack Black in the works as Jerry in a Grateful Dead biopic on IMDB, but hopefully that doesn't happen...honestly, this is like making "On The Road" into a film, which they are doing right now sadly. I say, leave the story alone, make a great Grateful Dead or Jerry Documentary, not a Hollywood production.

I think it should be the dude who played jerry and hit sampson over the head with a guitar in the blockbuster hit "half baked". That guys got the most experience, either him or Jon from Furthur.

I think JB could work, you need to see Jerry as a youngster not the Jerry that us jamband kids grew up with. Im 33 and never saw a young Jerry. Plus at least JB can play guitar. I don't think anyone will make a better comparison than Kilmer as Morrison..

jesus christ.

this is not good, but definitely under$tandable. The commercialization of another great music mind of the 20th century continues.... here's praying they don't make a Frank Zappa biopic.

If the actor actually chops off his finger it may work. This is the only way to capture the true emotion of the artist.

Sorry to burst your bubble but Jerry Garcia has been commercialized for a long time now.
